Berlin
25 Nov - 31 Dec 2013

As befits a city as modern and edgy as Berlin, the city's main Christmas market has an altogether more contemporary feel than those in the rest of Germany. Over 50 Christmas markets provide perfect Winter Magic for their visitors. A huge selection on offer and ranges from traditional markets, with handicraft and nativity scene, to extraordinary ones, with ice skating rink and Ferris wheel.

This year marks the second time a Christmas market will be held in front of Charlottenburg Castle. The Christmas Market will feature the Biedermeier period. Historic carriage rides, theme exhibits in the palace itself, and specialized lighting will feature the fascinating era between 1815 and 1848.

WeihnachtsZauber on Gendarmenmarkt is another classic Christmas Market that deserves a mention. The Gendarmenmarkt is one of the most beautiful squares in Europe and is the exquisite setting for one of Berlin's many Christmas markets - the historical Berlin Christmas market - which will whisk you away to a magical Christmas world full of scrumptious treats and fairy lights.

A new Christmas market, in which the nearby embassies of Great Britain, France, and the United States will be featuring their Christmas customs, will be opening again between the two Christmas markets at the Brandenburg Gate.

The heart of 'WinterMagic' beats particularly strongly on the Potsdamer Platz and in the Sony Centre, where there is a Christmas Market on the Sony Centre 4,000 square metre event area. 'Boccia on Ice' in an area protected from inclement weather, is another new attraction for the adults, while the kids can enjoy themselves in the neighboring Legoland Discovery Centre.

Things to see and do in Berlin

Checkpoint Charlie

This border crossing was an infamous symbol of the Berlin Wall from 1961 to 1990. Today it is a must on any sightseeing tour of the city with an additional museum Haus am Checkpoint Charlie

. DDR Museum

Get a taste of how life was on the other side of the Berlin Wall in this fully interactive museum. You’ll be able to explore a recreated Soviet East Berlin apartment and hear some of the hits of the day!

Eastside Gallery

Head down to the world’s largest open-air art gallery. Well, actually the remains of the Berlin Wall, which have been turned into a graffiti gallery. Check out the work of some 118 artists from across the world who have left their mark on this piece of history.

Berlin Zoo

One of the best zoos to be found anywhere in the world, Berlin Zoo boasts over 14,000 individual species of animal: more than enough to keep you entertained! Look out for Bao Bao, the giant panda.

Berghain/Panorama Bar

World-renowned nightclub Berghain and its upper floor, Panorama Bar, draw clubbers from around the world for a dose of house (upstairs) and hardcore techno (downstairs). It’s quite a spectacle, housed within a former power-station, but the door policy can be strict. The party kicks off on Friday night and keeps going until Monday morning – it’s not for the fainthearted!

Potsdamer Platz
This busy square is the modern symbol of Berlin. Once a deserted wasteland, since 1990 it has been transformed into a hub of cinemas, theatres, restaurants, hotels and shopping centres. A great place to get lost for a couple of hours.
