The Christmas season is officially on! It is not a secret, that Germany is one of the best places to try famous Gluhwein and get into a Christmas mood on local Weihnachtsmärkte. 

So why are Christmas Markets actually that special? Well…first of all - Mulled Wine a.k.a Gluhwein  or it’s non alcoholic alternative - Heisse Schokolade, will keep you warm this winter. 2nd of all…come on who doesn’t love Christmas? Although we haven’t seen the snow here in Berlin for quite long we all have decided, that Weihnachts season is our favorite season.
