Fotoeins Friday: Potsdamer Weihnachtsmarkt (Christmas Market)

Located about 30 kilometres southwest from Berlin, Potsdam is the capital city of the German federal state of Brandenburg. The proximity with Berlin means it’s an easy afternoon- or day-trip to visit Sans Souci Park and a relaxed wander through the city’s Old Town. But there’s also an easy half-mile (800 metres) walk through the heart of the Old Town to see and sample the city’s Christmas market during the holiday season by day or at night. Accompanied by sparkling (blue) lights, the sights and smells of mulled wine, hot chocolate, grilled sausages, roasted nuts, and sweets from various market stands are sure to tempt even the most stubborn of passers-by.

This Brandenburg Gate (1770) is smaller but older than Berlin’s version.
