The Christmas Market on 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.

Those in search of entertainment will enjoy the daily show programs, fairground rides for children, and the 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 visitors, there is an ice rink. The market also offers a party location resembling a traditional wooden hut, where adult visitors can enjoy a drink and dance well into the night.

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 and refreshments are available, while the platform on top offers nice views of the city.
