Christmas Market on Gendarmenmarkt (Bebelplatz)

Weihnachtsmarkt am Gendarmenmarkt an der Staatsoper 2023

Eine als Eiskönigin verkleidete Darstellerin ist auf dem Weihnachtsmarkt auf dem Bebelplatz an der Staatsoper unterwegs.

A festive atmosphere, extraordinary stalls and traditional craftsmanship: welcome to one of Berlin's most popular Christmas markets.

Every year, the Christmas market attracts around 800,000 visitors to the historic setting on Gendarmenmarkt. Due to construction work, the Christmas market will be held on nearby Bebelplatz from 2022 to 2024. Between the State Opera House, the Law Faculty of Humboldt University, St. Hedwig's Cathedral and Hotel de Rome, the stars atop of the traditional market stalls will twinkle along with the large Christmas tree in the center of the square.

Arts, Crafts and Entertainerment

The Christmas market "Weihnachtszauber" on Gendarmenmarkt is known and loved for its wide range of artistic offerings. A large tent serves as a demonstration space for craftspeople - here, wood carvers, comb makers and tailors show their skills to visitors. Handmade candles, toys and decorative items can be purchased as unique gifts for friends and family.

Festive Culinary Delights

In addition to the traditional roasted almonds, chestnuts and mulled wines, visitors will also find more unusual foods and drinks at this Christmas market. Food stalls and restaurants sell everything from sweet and savory snacks to traditional German dishes. In the heated and covered restaurant area, you can enjoy your food in a cozy atmosphere.
