ENJOY A MAGICAL FESTIVE SEASON IN GERMANY WITH ROCCO FORTE HOTELS

Berlin, Germany’s capital and largest city, and Munich, a cosmopolitan city with a heart, steeped in tradition and yet still progressive, are both fascinating places to visit and home to two Rocco Forte Hotels: The Charles Hotel, Munich near the Kunstareal, and Hotel de Rome, Berlin located in the former premises of the Dresdner Bank, on the historic Bebelplatz. In the run-up to Christmas, both hotels are the perfect starting point for a visit to the magical Christmas markets.

The tradition of Christmas markets originated in Germany and developed between the 13th and 14th centuries with the purpose of providing people with meat and all the food they required at the beginning of the cold season.

Later, they expanded to include arts and crafts, such as toys, woven baskets and confectionery and over time the markets have grown to become an integral part of the Christmas traditions in Germany.
