Berlin, Germany – a city with 73 Christmas Markets all piled into the last two months of 2019. Many of you would say that that is far too many markets for one city, but I chose to see it as a challenge. How many Christmas Markets could I visit this season?
In order to make each visit a little more fun, my girlfriend and I decided to create a rating system for each market. Our hope is to provide those of you reading this (and in Berlin) with a simple rating so that you can visit only the best.
Our Rating System
We created a rating scale based on the four parts of a Christmas Market that we thought most important: the vibe, the Glühwein (mulled wine), the size of the market, and the size of the crowd.
What to expect
We will be traveling to new markets every week. And for each week I will post an update leading all the way up to Christmas. I’m looking forward to this fun “adventure of the season” and I can tell you, from the markets we’ve seen so far, it’s going to be a blast.
