The Christmas Market at Alexanderplatz is one of the busiest in Berlin. Vendors sell traditional crafts and Christmas products such as pottery, tchotchkes and carved Christmas pyramids from more than a hundred booths while the sounds of the market-goers and the smells of Bratwurst, gingerbread and mulled wine waft through the square.

For entertainment there are daily show programmes, fairground rides for children and a Ferris wheel nearby. From the top of the wheel, visitors can enjoy the view over the illuminated Alexanderplatz with the hustle and bustle between the stands and market attractions. For the more active among the visitors, there is an ice rink.

A special feature of the market is the Christmas pyramid decorated with more than 5000 lights. It is the biggest walk-in Christmas pyramid in Europe. On the ground floor of the pyramid snacks are available. The platform on top offers nice views.
