One of the best Christmas markets around Berlin. Catch the uBahn and enjoy this lovely town and its Christmas market.

We did a bit of research on line for Christmas Markets in Berlin and this one was declared the largest so we grabbed a U barn and headed out there. It's a very pretty village but this was definitely a case of quantity versus quality. The Market stretches all around the village streets but really wasn't as good as others... More

Jumping the U7 Ubahn down to Altstadt Spandau is a must on any trip to Berlin as it's so nice to escape the hussle and bussle of Berlin To me Spandau has more of a village feel to it with a much more sedate pace and there are some interesting sites here. The Citadel is impressive and Gothic House is... More

Perhaps I was expecting too much? Not a particularly interesting area - had to ask where the old town was and turned out we were in it! Nothing like other parts of Germany, probably due to war damage. OK for a short stop off but not a highlight of our trip

using the U Bahn we ventured out to Spandau and spent a very happy morning looking at the stalls and drinking Gluwein. Its pace was much more relaxed and a worthwhile trip

A little bit outside of the center of Berlin, but worth the detour. Streets for pedestrian only, and Citadelle itself in Spandau.

Visited on a Sunday, everything closed except a couple restaurants and coffee shops. Thought this would be more like "Old Berlin" featuring unique shops and original architecture but it did not. Pretty setting next to the river and the work being done will add to the area, but not worth going this far out of the way to visit, even... More
