Fotoeins Friday: Berliner WeihnachtsZauber and Christmas Magic

WeihnachtsZauber Gendarmenmarkt is one of the most beautiful markets in the German capital city of Berlin. Located in the city centre in the famous Gendarmenmarkt plaza surrounded by two churches and a music hall, this Christmas market charges a small 1 Euro admission charge, and much of the proceeds go to charitable causes. Appearing here in front of the Deutscher Dom (German Cathedral), the tree and decorations were generously donated by the Croatian capital city of Zagreb.

I made the image above on 17 December 2012 with the Canon EOS450D camera, EF-S 18-55 IS II zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/15s, f/4.5, ISO800, 29mm (46mm) focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at, and also appears on Travel Photo Thursday for Nancie McKinnon’s Budget Travelers Sandbox.

      Thanks for your kind compliment! There are more than a few markets in Berlin, and it would be difficult to pinpoint after an 8-year absence.
