Christmas in Berlin - any ideas?

From December 23th till the 27th my boyfriend and I will stay in the Marriott Courtyard Berlin City Center.

Of course we will visit the christmas markets, eat and drink gluhwein! Now I'm looking for ideas about what to do during the day.

Something to visit, something to do, places to have lunch?

Thanks in advance!

You could do one of the walking tours. I did one earlier this year when friends came for a visit and really enjoyed that. We did the Brewers Walking tour.

If you are getting cold you could spend some time in the museums, for example the Pergamon Museum.

You'll find some nice places to eat all over the city.

Berlin's biggest outdoor ice rink is at Bebelplatz/Unter den Linden open daily from 11am to 10pm. Very nice area with great atmosphere, Unter den Linden boulevard is illuminated and great to stroll along to Brandenburg Gate:

entrance fee 3,- EUR, ice skates 2,- EUR

Around that area there you will also find Berlin's nicest christmas markets:

- Christmas Market on Gendarmenmarkt:

Not in a very central location but still a great idea for a cold winter day:
