Visitors to the Christmas market at Berlin Town Hall near Alexanderplatz dive a little bit into historic Berlin with street artists such as organ grinders and musicians, an Old Berlin setting and traditional stalls selling authentic arts and crafts. Performers present scenes of life in Berlin as it happened at this place one hundred years ago.
Historic carrousels and a fairytale forest
A 50-metres giant Ferris wheel provides an excellent view of the festively illuminated Berlin city centre. Historic carrousels offer action and delight both for children and adults. A special treat for the little ones is a trip on the train that enters a fantastic, snowy fairytale forest. Another popular highlight of this market is the 600 square metres ice rink where skaters makes circles around the impressive Neptune Fountain.
Santa Claus is coming
There are a lot of tasty culinary delights waiting for the visitors - from the traditional mulled wine, or Glühwein, to roasted almonds, bratwursts, freshly baked bread and gingerbread. And Santa Claus is coming, too: Three times a day he rides on his sleigh pulled by his reindeer over the market in the Berlin air and is happy to give hugs and pose for a photograph.
