Germany is the home of Christmas lights, so it's no wonder the country's capital really shines during the holiday season. When the sun goes down on Berlin, the city's historic buildings, streets and every available tree branch are lit up with colorful projections and row upon row of fairy lights. Berlin's illuminations are such a draw that visitors with a passion for photography can sign up for special guided tours of the lights.
