Going to the Christmas Market is a great tradition in Germany, and every city has at least one. Berlin boasts between 50 and sometimes up to 100 Christmas markets. Most Christmas markets starts on Monday November 27, 2017. Some goes on to the end of December and some even a few days into January.
This is considered the most beautiful and popular. Cozy and a bit of luxury between the German and French Church with its mighty towers. There are many stalls with food and drinks, exclusive crafts and of course, Christmas decorations and souvenirs. It can get cold in Berlin, so it’s nice to be able to go into the hot tents with serving. Outside there is a scene with various dance and music performances.
A few hundred meters from Alexanderplatz is the Red Town Hall. It is pretty large with lot of space. Even a nice skating rink that gives a certain mood when people go around to the pleasant music. A little further away even a Ferris wheel and a few rides. Booths with everything that belongs to a Christmas market, and a bit calmer atmosphere here than at the Christmas market at Alexanderplatz.
Alexanderplatz is a traditional Christmas market. There is a nice skating rink if you want to be a little more active. A busy market and located close to other great shopping. That make the market feel busy when it is right between the Metro and the big shopping center “Galeria Kaufhof”.
Berlin’s largest Christmas market is located in Spandau, and according to them, the most impressive German Christmas Market. Spandau district is located a bit outside the center, but if you have more than a few days in Berlin, a trip here is to recommend. The town hall is nicely lit at night and the first thing you see when you come up from the metro. From here you can walk about 1 kilometer through the Christmas market and the old town. St.Nicolai church, in the middle of the Spandau market, has its own little Christmas market with exciting iron crafts etc. It’s really cozy and charming in this old town, and you find over 250 stalls with crafts, food, drinks and much more. Each evening it’s a colorful stage show to liven up the atmosphere. Spandau also offer historic attractions like, Spandau Zitadelle , Hahneberg Fort, Gothic Hall and St. Nicholas Church from the Middle Ages.
