1. Go to a concert at Berliner Philharmonie

2. Discover the Brandenburg Gate 

The 18th century Brandenburg Gate is an impressive monument and landmark in Berlin. A trip to the city simply couldn’t include a walk around the beautiful monument, which is now a national symbol of peace and unity in the country.

3. Feel festive at the Christkindlmarkt

If you’re planning a winter break to Germany, a visit to the Munich Christmas Market is a must! The traditional market, held annually between November and December, brings together music, authentic nativity scenes, delicious foods and quirky gifts and crafts – as well as a huge Christmas tree to celebrate the upcoming festivities and light up the area. The market takes place on Marienplatz (St. Mary’s Square), in the centre of Munich.
