My favorite Weinachten Markt

Christmas in Berlin is known as Weinachten. It's a festive time where people hang out in great number downtown and have good fun for the whole family. The markets (markts) are very busy and interesting each with their own unique attraction. The carnival rides were way too dangerous for me to consider riding. I listened to a guy read Red Riding Hood (in German) to a crowd of all ages nearly all drinking gluhwein (aka Glogg or Mullwine). Gluhwein is very tasty (festive taste) and can be either cheap or expensive depending on what it's made of and how much profit the vendor wishes to make. Either way drunkenness ensues for hilarious result.
