Christmas market weekend in Berlin Germany
For this christmas weekend I am going to Berlin. To find a affordable flight in December was not easy so I am choosing a longer route. Fist I will fly to Warsaw, then take the train to Berlin. When I arrive in Warsaw I will have some hours for lunch before I take the train from Warszawa Centralna railway station. On my list before departuring is Christmas market in Berlin, historic sights, good food and Berlin nightlife.
First leg is TRF – WAW, back packed and a fee payed to carry it onboard. Flying with wizz airlines is easy and super cheap. Just follow the instructions and you will have a good flight.
Wizz airbus ready to board
My professional taxidriver from WAW airport to Warsaw. Taking a taxi from outside the terminal is a quick and easy way to get in to town.
Arriving in Warsaw I have some hours for lunch with friends before the journey continues to Berlin.
Express train bound for Berlin.
Documents and passport control on the train. With a Norwegian passport life was easy. I shared coupe with two from Turkey, one with Ukrainian passport and two with Polish passports, Ukraine and Turkey took some time to confirm and was the start of some interresting discussions while we watched the sun set as we approched Berlin.
Welcome to busy Berlin.
Express train made the journey comfortable
Berlin was ready for christmas!
This is the view from my hotelroom. I stayed at Park Inn, one of the highest buildings located at Alexanderplatz. With my Club Carlsson card I got a upgrade to a better room with this view. The rooms are not too big and the bathroom is just a curtain separating it from the rest of the room. From the hotel it is walking distance to all major attractions and you will find one of the largest christmas markets right outside the hotel entrance.

Relaxing in the lounge at WAW, Priority Pass accepted. Taking a early morning flight back to Norway, work starts in a few hours.
Weekend stop in Berlin before christmas, perfect! If you are missing the christmas feeling this is the city to stop in. I would go back here to see more of the historic sights, preferably in a warmer period.
