In the 19th century, a glassblower from Lauscha decided to use glass to make ornaments for the Christmas tree. They soon became a huge success around the world and are still made by hand in Lauscha today.
For the first time, Berlin's German Historical Museum is showcasing Christmas tree decorations over the centuries. From traditional glass baubles to Nazi emblems, some of the festive adornments will surprise.
Winter marks the start of a magical time of Christmas markets in Germany. The festive bazaars attract millions of people, including DW's Eesha Kheny who visited Cologne for her very first Christmas market experience.
