There are lots of different Christmas markets in Germany that are set against historic backdrops. For example the one in the northern German city of Bremen. It attracts around one and a half million visitors every year.
After a poor beginning, the German government has begun offering meaningful help to those affected by the Berlin Christmas market attack. But has the country really learned how to deal with any future such events?
After a spat with Italian officials over the terrorist's body, Amri's family members held a funeral in his hometown in Tunisia, they told DW. His remains had been held in Italy for months before being transferred.
The Berlin parliament has launched an inquiry to find out why Anis Amri was not caught before carrying out a murderous rampage. The Christmas market attacker was known to authorities, and had been followed before.
After a day of mourning, the Christmas markets in the German capital are open again. Only the market on Breitscheidplatz, where the attack took place, remains closed for the time being.
