Berlin Christmas market spreads festive cheer despite terror threat

Berlin’s Christmas market at the foot of the Gedaechtniskirche officially opened its doors to the public, bringing revellers out to enjoy the traditional offerings of mulled wine and seasonal food. In addition to the wood huts and festive stalls, visitors will notice the extra security measures, now a common sight in the capital along with the tinsel and glitter balls.

Following a truck attack on the Breitscheidplatz Christmas market in December two years ago, police and city councils have erected concrete bollards around markets near traffic and added extra security and patrol police.

Berlin Mayor Michael Mueller paid his respects at the Breitscheidplatz market and laid a white rose at a small memorial.
