Arrival in Berlin on Christmas Day?

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Berlin for over Xmas break 2017-18 (trying to maximize vacation days and since I live in a northern clime am not put off by the weather).

I am wondering whether it will be a problem to arrive in Berlin (either airport) on Christmas Day?

I am not personally interested in Christmas, the holiday, I just am wondering about getting into the city or any practical logistics that might be impeded by arrival on a big holiday.

I live in a smaller US city (Boston) and our public transport and taxis are on much reduced service that day, and would expect similar, at least. But I want to be sure (before I commit to a ticket) that a) I won't be stranded at the airport, and b) I'll be able to get at least something to eat once I'm checked into my hotel. Also in checking out the state museum schedules online (my main interest) it looks amazingly as if they are open! (Shocking! but great!)

I've never traveled over Christmas week in Europe (though I've been to Europe quite a bit). Trying to get a sense of what to expect. Any other tips besides airport transport also welcome!
