Berlin Christmas Market
Berlin Christmas markets are popular events with holidays and breaks available at popular German Christmas markets.

The Berlin Christmas markets are considered to be some of the largest and most extravagant in Germany. The vibrant capital of Germany makes for the perfect city break location at anytime of the year but during the advent season the city comes alive with festive cheer.

The capital of Germany turns into a magically decorated winter scene in December, with more than 50 Christmas markets all over the city. Tempting aromas of mulled wine, tasty food and sweet delicacies are bound to put you in the right spirit. Discover the variety of unique handicraft stalls, refreshment and food stalls along the large decorated boulevards and squares.

Don't miss the Christmas market in front of the beautiful Charlottenburg Castle which dates back to the Biedermeier period. The castle's gothic towers are bathed in atmospheric light giving it a more romantic feel than the other markets. To fully appreciate the beauty of this market, be sure to pay a visit in the evening.

One of the most popular Christmas markets in Berlin is situated next to the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church amidst the hustle and bustle of highstreet shoppers. The church itself serves as a poignant memorial to the war, as the spire was damaged by a bomb during WW2 and never repaired. Adjacent to the market is the main shopping boulevard in Berlin which holds the biggest department store in Europe.

Mulled wine and punch, grilled sausages and baked apples are available from the numerous lovingly decorated stalls. The traditional and particularly lovely Christmas market at the 'Gendarmenmarkt' is also not to be missed, located in one of Europe's most beautiful squares.

Berlin's most famous square plays host to the Alexanderplatz market and is particularly family-friendly as it features an enchanted fairy tale forest and an ice rink. It is also the location of the capital's highest tower which is a popular attraction for visitors on Berlin City breaks. The 360-degree viewing platform provides spectacular panoramic views of the city and, in the evening, it shows the city illuminated by thousands of lights.

There are four main Berlin Christmas markets, and over 50 smaller ones so you are sure to find the perfect Christmas present among the handmade decorations and toys on offer.
