Things to do in Berlin in December!

Yeah, visit Berlin in WINTER! We already had the first snow of the year, it was beautiful.
With this blog post we would like to give you some ideas on what to do in Berlin in December. Read on and plan your trip to Berlin right away!

1.    Visit one of the many Christmas Markets
You can read in our previous blog post on Berlin Christmas markets about where the coolest Christmas markets are and what their opening hours are. Have fun Christmas shopping and don´t forget to try the Glühwein (Mulled Wine).

2.    Go to one of the many Museums

In this cold season, it is on some days better to stay inside. Why not visit as many museums as you can with the museum day pass! From the Allied Museum to the Zucker Museum (Sugar Museum) – the popular 3-day Berlin Museum Pass opens the doors to a number of the city’s big museums, as well as a few insider’s tips. From impressive works of art, archaeological treasures from six thousand years of human history and touching historical monuments to technical inventions and interactive experiments for the whole family. For €19,00 (reduced €9,50), the museum pass guarantees free admission for all Berlin visitors on three consecutive days.

3.    Find a good place for your Christmas Dinner

Some suggestions, SchusterJunge, Schneeweisschen & Rosenrot, Schwarzwaldstuben- these 3 restaurants are all serving the finest German food you can imagine. Make sure to reserve a table way ahead though! If you need help and advice, just come ask us at the hostel reception.
If you don´t want to eat out you can buy your own food and prepare a  delicious meal at the hostel kitchen! We have a cozy full equipped kitchen, feel free to use it during your stay!

4.    Christmas parties!
Go dance the night away on Christmas. A lot of clubs are open and dancing is the perfect way to burn all the calories after eating way too much on Christmas again.
Some cool clubs where you can go to:
Kaffee Burger: just around the corner from the EastSeven Berlin Hostel. Go here if you like electro & indie pop.
Bassy Cowboy Club: Christmas swing party, with music from the 60ties!

White Trash Fast Food: go here to taste the finest fast food in town. Also go here for live music, rock ´n´roll!

5. Go to a movie theater

the Cinestar Cinema in the Sonycentre at Potsdamer Platz shows movies in the original language.

To know which films are playing when, just come talk to us at the reception!


if you are coming to Berlin around Christmas please note that on Christmas Eve, the 24th of December, (almost) everything in Berlin is closed, from shops to restaurants. Please prepare for this!

See you soon in Berlin at the hostel in Prenzlauer Berg!
