2018 has been an incredible year for Mixd, probably our busiest year to date:
To thank the team for their hard work and dedication we wanted to do something extra special to say thanks and so we planned an adventure to take the whole Mixd team to Berlin for a christmassy weekend of food, excitement and laughter.
Our first sightseeing location was the iconic Brandenburg Gate. We were very fortunate to arrive at dusk just as all the lights were beginning to blink to life. During our visit Europe’s largest menorah was on display just inside Brandenburg Gate and with the lights dimming and evening rolling in it looked incredible.
Home of the German Parliament, we enjoyed the juxtaposition of the classical architecture against a backdrop of modern brutalist design. Outside the steps of the Reichstag building was one of the biggest Christmas trees we have ever seen, the photographs really don’t do it justice. By the time we left we were all feeling the Christmas spirit.
O Tannenbaum, O Tannenbaum, wie treu sind deine Blätter.
We ended the days festivities at the famous Alexanderplatz Christmas market where we enjoyed some traditional Currywurst, watched the Ice Skaters and bought presents from the many luxury hand made gift stalls.
To really soak in the wonder of Berlin we headed up 207 meters of Berlin’s famous TV Tower to the observation deck where we got the most incredible view of the city. We soaked up the sights and enjoyed a singer-songwriter performing seasonal songs in the sky bar while we played games picking out famous locations across the city skyline.
To satisfy the history buffs within the team we headed to Checkpoint Charlie, a former Berlin Wall crossing point between East and West Germany.
Berlin is such a breathtaking city filled with culture, architecture and design we almost forgot to get some photographs of us enjoying ourselves!

Saturday night at Scotch and Sofa. We spent the evening chatting, laughing, playing silly dare games and having fun.
We ended our Christmas celebrations together at the Berlin Ice Bar. It may have been -10C but we enjoyed some music, drinking out of ice glasses and dancing.
So #Mixdmas was the perfect end to an excellent year at Mixd. We already have big things planned for 2019. Our new offices are almost complete and we have some exciting projects ready to begin in the new year!
