This is where the neighbourhood meets: arts & crafts and homemade goods from the neighbourhood can be found at the charming Christmas market at the Bröhan Museum. On the 2nd weekend of Advent, the small market takes place in an atmospheric ambience in the immediate vicinity of the large Christmas market at Charlottenburg Palace.
Crafts instead of commerce: neighbors meet in the courtyard of the Bröhan Museum for a merry get-together, organized by the "Kiezbündnis Klausenerplatz e.V.".
Christmas in the neighbourhood
In the courtyard of the Bröhan Museum the neighbours meet for a merry get-together, organised by the "Kiezbündnis Klausenerplatz e.V. (Klausenerplatz neighbourhood alliance)".
The traders at the 40 or so stands are specially selected for the cosy Christmas market, with priority given to local suppliers from the neighbourhood and their products. The market is less geared towards commercialism and more towards the community of people of all generations in the neighbourhood.
So you are sure to find that special souvenir: high-quality craftsmanship and beautiful art, homemade gifts and pretty Christmas decorations. Everything you see at the stands is lovingly handcrafted.
Entertainment programme at the Christmas market
On the festively decorated stage, schools, dance clubs and nurseries sing songs, act out plays and give readings for visitors to the Christmas market.
To whet your appetite there is mulled wine, fried sausages, crispy bread as well as coffee, snacks from the neighbourhood and homemade cakes. Children's punch and cocoa for the little ones as well as mulled wine, coffee – with or without a shot – and honey mead for the grown-ups must not be missed out on.
Art Nouveau and Art Deco: The Brohän Museum
The Bröhan Museum exhibits art, crafts and furniture from Art Nouveau, Art Deco and Functionalism between 1880 and 1940. You can visit entire suites of rooms with furniture and decorative elements from the playful Art Nouveau and look at vases and coffee services in the style of the simpler Art Deco and Functionalism. One room is dedicated to the works of the Berlin Secessionists, here you will find works by Lesser Ury and Walter Leistikow.
