4. Christmas Market at the Spandau Citadel

The Christmas market in the old town of Spandau is one of the most beautiful and traditional Christmas markets in Berlin since it takes place in the best preserved Renaissance fortress in northern Europe and few words can describe the wonder that Christmas represents in that place.
