Christmas market in the historic Bolle-Meierei

This Christmas market in Berlin will unfortunately not take place in 2022

Let yourself be transported back to another time: In front of the historical dairy and the Spree-Bogen Areal a wonderful Christmas market awaits you.

Christmas like it used to be. Immerse yourself in the festively decorated Wilhelminian setting of the historic dairy grounds. Since the Bolle Festsäle event rooms are also open, you can enjoy the magic of Advent even in bad weather.

Once the whole of Berlin was supplied with milk from here, today the lovingly renovated Wilhelminian building is a popular venue for events. And at Christmas time a festive family magic party is held here.

The Bolle Festsäle are open

By the way, a visit is also worthwhile in bad weather, since the doors of the historic Bolle Festsäle event rooms open at Christmas time. Stroll through the imposing Wilhelminian-style rooms and immerse yourself in the magic of the pre-Christmas period.

Bakery and craft area

A wonderful scent wafts from the bakery, and children lovingly make their presents in the craft area. There’s a fairy tale tent, a magician and a merry-go-round. A toboggan run also invites you for some winter fun. And of course Santa Claus is coming. While the little ones whisper their wishes to him, you also have the perfect opportunity to take a Christmas photo for the family album.

Christmas and hearty specialities

A small railway runs around the outdoor grounds of the Spree-Bogen Areal. The stalls lure visitors with mulled wine and typical Christmas delicacies such as bratwurst, waffles and crêpes. Gourmets will get their money’s worth with the tastings on offer from Carl & Sophie, who were awarded 13 points in the Gault&Millau Restaurant Guide 2020.

Another highlight is the family magic raffle with prizes worth a total of € 5,000. The proceeds will be donated to the Berliner Tafel food bank.
