Christmas in Berlin

Hi! I'm staying in Berlin for a couple of nights over Christmas, I do understand that many places are closed during the 24th. (I arrive on the 22nd and leave on the 25th.) Are there still restaurants/cafés/clubs etc open even if they are not that many? Or is everything shut down?

Shops will close 24. noon or early afternoon except for the "Spätis" and Shops in the railway stations. 25./26. shops will be closed. General rule: whats closed on Sundays will be closed these days. Many bars, Restaurants etc. will be open. So don't worry. Interesting though: christmas markets are closed on christmas.

Hi Annika, actually I have never been in Berlin for Christmas. But as far as I know Berlin and all Asian as well as Arabic Restaurabts at least they will be open I guess because most of them don't celebrate Christmas. I guess "Mitte" and then around Rosenthaler Straße, Münzstraße, Gipsstraße should be fine. If i find a list of restaurants, I'll send it to you. Enjoy!
