Darkness and cold has descended upon Berlin. The city is blanketed in snow and fairy lights adorn the trees. Yes, it's winter again. But one of the lovely things about the Berlin and German winter is the season of Christmas markets. This year the Mädels bring you the sights, sounds and history of the Old Rixdorf Christmas Market. For just one weekend during the advent season, the Rixdorf Christmas market draws people from all over the city with its mixture of traditional crafts, entertainment and, of course, glühwein (German mulled wine).
