We did a bit of research on line for Christmas Markets in Berlin and this one was declared the largest so we grabbed a U barn and headed out there. It's a very pretty village but this was definitely a case of quantity versus quality. The Market stretches all around the village streets but really wasn't as good as others we went to in Berlin itself. I'm sorry not really worth the effort

Jumping the U7 Ubahn down to Altstadt Spandau is a must on any trip to Berlin as it's so nice to escape the hussle and bussle of Berlin
To me Spandau has more of a village feel to it with a much more sedate pace and there are some interesting sites here.
The Citadel is impressive and Gothic House is beautiful while the Rathaus is a dominating building that looks superb when viewed from afar.
I always go to Brauhaus Spandau for a lovely meal and sample their delicious beer's .
There are some nice streets to stroll around and in the centre you have the beautiful Church of St Nicholas.
If your in Berlin over the Christmas period then I highly recommend you visit the wonderful Christmas market held here also,it's very pretty and extremely popular.
With great transport links from Berlin central directly to the Altstadt getting here is not a problem.
A great afternoon out and an area I highly recommend you visit .

Perhaps I was expecting too much? Not a particularly interesting area - had to ask where the old town was and turned out we were in it! Nothing like other parts of Germany, probably due to war damage. OK for a short stop off but not a highlight of our trip
