Fotoeins Friday: Christmas at Berlin Kulturbrauerei

In Berlin’s “Kollwitzkiez” neighbourhood within the area known as Prenzlauer Berg1, a big Christmas market takes place inside the site of the former brewery Kulturbrauerei. The Christmas market has a decidedly Scandinavian feel with the Swedish Lucia legend as the bringer of light at the beginning of a dark northern winter. The 2016 version runs November 21 to December 22 inclusive. There is no charge for entry with operating hours: Monday to Friday from 3pm to 10pm, and weekends 1pm to 10pm. The nearest metro station is Eberswalder Straße (U-Bahn U2) with connections to rams 12, M1, and M10.

1At present this is contained within the Berlin administrative borough of Pankow.

I made the photo above on 6 December 2015 with the Canon 6D, 24-105 zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/50s, f/4, ISO16000, 24mm focal length. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-95G.
