A Christmas market just for kids? This too can be found in Berlin. At FEZ, the Freizeit- und Erholungszentrum (leisure and recreation centre) in Wuhlheide, the Adventiamo Children’s Christmas Market takes place in the pre-Christmas period. But don’t worry: you can bring mum and dad along too!
Europe’s largest non-profit children’s, youth and family centre is once again inviting children to a creative and varied Christmas market on all four Advent weekends this year.
Christmas workshops and Christmas bakery
With a wide range of hands-on activities and Christmas delicacies you can get in the mood for Christmas at FEZ.
In the Christmas workshops, children can make gifts such as gingerbread houses and gnome figures, make candles or sew little teddy bears themselves and much more. Little bakers can bake their own Christmas biscuits at the Christmas bakery. The programme is supplemented by games and singing.
Exciting Christmastime stories
Each of the four Advent weekends has its own theme at the Adventiamo Children’s Christmas Market. In line with this theme, children and families can listen to stories about how Christmas used to be celebrated or what Christmas customs there are in other cultures.
Santa Claus and theatre performances
On top of Santa Claus’s visit, , who takes time to listen to all the children’s wishes, various Christmas plays are performed on the Astrid Lindgren stage.
