Draft plan outline and questions - We are going to be a group of 3 families and 8 people. Hitting it on a half day trip is slightly pointless because then it is just another palace like many others. Day 3 - Monday 23rd and Spandau. Two did not open in 2018 due to public constuctions. You need to calculate quite much time for Christmas market visits, at least if you want to soak up the atmosphere fully.

I think Spandau on this day might be a bit much, maybe do Charlottenburg Palace, market and grounds, then come back towards mitte and stop at the Memorial Church, it beautiful when lit up and the market is quite nice.
