Once you get tired of taking pictures and walking along viewing the fairy lights of the Kurfürstendamm stop at the Gedächtniskirche Christmas Market.  If you are feeling lucky and in the mood to try out something new, order mulled cherry beer and Kartoffelpuffer with Apfelmus (German potato fritters with apples sauce). Come and eat like a local.
