German winter wonderland

Nothing like a huge Christmas tree and a nativity scene with live animals, to put everybody in the Christmas mood. .I think that Spandau, GERMANY is the largest European Christmas market. I elucidate my visit to the Ct yd on my blog;- Its in the in the picturesque Old Town.If you have rented a car, it is convenient to park at the Courtyard Berlin Teltow on Warthestrasse (west of the city) but when I stay at the full Marriott Berlin in the center, I prefer to rely on public transport underground and S-bahn.

    Elitepro,

    You really really know your travel places! The Berlin advice was wonderful!

    The Courtyard I stayed at was close to Checkpoint Charlie and a host of neat places.  Your advice on the public bus is moneysaving and well worth it.  Likewise, taking the light rail from Tgl was a big savings and a lot of fun.  Thanks!

          Jasper,

           

          I can't tell you how enjoyable Munich, and that region is!

           

          South of there is a great place, Garmisch.  There used to be a Ren.  there that was one of my all time favorite Marriott properties.  Spent 6 Christmas' there and really loved the Zugspitzer!

    I spent many a time at the this Christmas place in Germany.  It was there that we started collecting little Christmas mementos and though I complain that we need to get those boxes down in advance of the season I admire the spirit and the memories of that place and time.

     

    Also, anyone else recall buying the Steiff Bears with the button in their ears?  Many of them were unplayed with, still have the bottons intact, and have appreciated a lot in value Steiff.jpg

    Ah yes, Christmas in Germany, what fond memories, drinking hot mulled cider or better yet Asbach with coffee by a roaring fire!  Thanks for reminding me!
