Christmas market in the Späth'schen Baumschulen

This Christmas market in Berlin will unfortunately not take place in 2020

Enjoy romantic Christmas moments at one of Berlin's prettiest Christmas markets: the Späth'schen Baumschulen cordially invite you to the Christmas market once again this year.

The Späth’schen Baumschulen are transformed into a Christmas wonderland in a blaze of lights during the pre-Christmas season.
A bonfire and fireplace stoves invite you to linger with Christmas music.

Founded in 1720 by Christoph Späth, the plant nursery was initially a fruit and vegetable nursery. Around 1900 it was the largest plant nursery in the world with an area of over 225 hectares. The famous Späth-Arboretum opened in 1879. For many years, the Christmas market has formed part of gardening tradition.

On more than 100 lovingly decorated stands, craftsmen, jewellery designers and natural goods workshops offer their products for sale. In addition to wooden toys, Christmas tree decorations and rocking horses, or decorations for the house and garden, you can also discover art from the Ore Mountains, fine culinary delicacies and beautiful things to wear as well as buy your Christmas tree. Here you will surely find unique Christmas gifts for your loved ones. A new attraction for young and old is an ice rink for ice skating. The skates can also be rented.

Culinary delicacies

You can also discover lots of culinary delights here: hearty kale, vegan goulash, homemade game boulettes, farmhouse bread, Ukrainian Solyanka and other delicacies can be tasted at the Sacrow's knights' hall. Thuringian fruit mulled wine, vintner’s mulled wine, Swedish Glögg, hot chocolate and children's punch will warm you up from the inside.

Fairytale hut and children's carousel

The old blue fairytale hut offers a great programme for children: The Hexenberg Ensemble performs and a storyteller tells exciting stories accompanied by music. In addition, the little ones can work as they did in the Middle Ages, make great Christmas presents themselves and go on a historical children's carousel, marvel at a fire show or visit the handmade Christmas crib.

Diverse stage programme

Various bands on the big stage provide top-class entertainment. In the stage programme brimming with surprises, hosted by rbb 88.8 presenter Ingo Hoppe, the bands play everything from classical Christmas songs to modern songs.
