Berlin Gluhwein To-Go Tips
- Bring your own refillable mug for your gluhwein to keep it eco-friendly. Or if you really want to get into the Christmas vibe, bring your favourite Christmas market mug!
- Don’t hang around outside the restaurant, bar or cafe after you’ve got your gluhwein. Go for a stroll instead. Otherwise, you may get the owner of the establishment in trouble with the police.
- Don’t overindulge in gluhwein if you’re cycling back home. It’s the most important traffic rule when cycling in Germany.
- The current coronavirus guidelines and restrictions requires all restaurants, bars and shops to close at 11PM, so start your gluhwein walk early.
