School Christmas Markets Trips to Berlin
Because no one can out-do Germany's Christmas Market scene
Sizzling bratwurst, spice-scented gingerbread, mulled wine: Germany’s Christmas Markets are as traditional as they come. Where city squares are lined with garland-bedecked stalls, and the aroma of marzipan and fried doughnuts lulls you into a festive haze, Berlin’s markets range from elegant wonderlands to rustic grottoes. Swing into a school Christmas Markets trip to Berlin with visits to its historic sights, before perusing seasonal handicrafts amongst lively street performers.
