Not only thanks to its location between Französischer Dom and Deutscher Dom is the Christmas market at Gendarmenmarkt one of the most atmospheric in the city. The market offers a large range of handmade goods crafted by artisans, Christmas food, and entertainment.

In the market's large crafts tent, visitors can look wood carvers, belt makers, dressmakers, comb makers and other craftspeople over the shoulder. Not far away, talented graphic artists, photographers, stonemasons and painters display their works.

Culinary offerings at the Gendarmenmarkt Christmas market range from unusual snacks to gourmet menus and traditional Christmas delicacies. Jugglers, fire-eaters, choirs and classical, jazz or Gospel ensembles provide a varied entertainment programme on each market day. A part of the proceeds of the admission fee is given to charity.
