Christmas Market at Potsdamer Platz


A perfect Christmas market for fit kids and adults: Aside from doing some Christmas shopping, visitors can take a toboggan run or do some ice skating.

The Christmas Market at Potsdamer Platz is called "Winter World" as it not only offers lots of Christmas stuff and foods but also a large toboggan and a 500 square metres open-air ice rink.

The Christmas market is conceived as an Austrian-style winter scenery with log cabins and a crafts market. Visitors can watch the craftspeople at work and sample German and Austrian Christmas foods such as candied apples, roasted almonds and mulled wine.

At the weekend, live music and an après-ski party atmosphere dominate the Christmas market at Potsdamer Platz.
