We love discovering Berlin at Christmas time. This includes a visit to a Christmas market, a stroll through the beautifully lit city, a glass of mulled wine….
Christmas Markets in Berlin
Just come along and discover Berlin with us at Christmas time!
Directly in front of Charlottenburg Palace in Berlin, a Christmas market has been held in the run-up to Christmas for several years. Against the historic backdrop of the palace, you can stroll through the Christmas stalls here every year from the end of November until the end of December.
The Christmas market at Johannisstift in Spandau traditionally takes place on the 1st Sunday of Advent.
The Christmas market around the Gedächniskirche has existed for 35 years. For us, a visit to precisely this Christmas market has been a traditional part of the Christmas season for years.
There are countless Christmas markets in Berlin, in fact you can immerse yourself in the Christmas feeling on almost every corner in December. During our tour of the city, we also took a look at the Christmas market at the Rotes Rathaus.
For me, the Lucia Christmas Market in Prenzlauer Berg is one of the most beautiful Christmas markets in Berlin. The size is manageable, there are stalls that offer their wares away from the usual "socks and caps stalls" and delicious mulled wine!
Every year at Christmas time, the Berlin Railway Friends offer a trip from Berlin to Schmachtenhagen with the Glühweinexpress. If you book in time, you can get hold of tickets.
