Locals and tourists in the German capital Berlin are looking forward to Christmas. The shopping streets are illuminated and a great variety of Christmas markets offer specialties like mulled wine and roasted almonds.

Shortly before the anniversary of the 2016 Berlin terror attack, Chancellor Angela Merkel has paid a surprise visit to Breitscheidtplatz's Christmas market. Survivors recently criticized Merkel's handling of the attack.
