Are you looking for an unconventional Christmas market experience with a festive and hip atmosphere in a cool location? Then the Weihnachtsrodeo Designweihnachtsmarkt at the Kühlhaus Berlin is the place to go!
The Weihnachtsrodeo has been established in the pre-Christmas hustle and bustle of the capital for over 10 years. Annually changing locations make the indoor Christmas market an unforgettable Christmas experience in a hip atmosphere time and again.
Christmas shopping in historic walls
The Kühlhaus was the largest cold store complex in Europe in 1901, with an area of over 9000 square metres. Although the Kühlhaus had survived the Second World War almost unscathed, large parts of the plant were demolished in 1979. Since 2011, the former, listed Kühlhaus II with an area of 3500 square metres, distributed over 5 floors, has been used as a versatile venue for events. After 2017 and 2018, the Weihnachtsrodeo will be held here this year for the third time.
Unique gift ideas
Over 150 designers, artisans and manufactories offer creative and high-quality products for sale: here you can discover original and unique gift ideas: especially design, fashion, jewellery and art.
Chill-out oases and street food
If you need a little break from Christmas shopping, chill-out oases invite you to unwind under Christmas trees. Various DJs provide the soundtrack to the unconventional Christmas spectacle with their beats and, in addition to a large selection of street food delicacies, there is of course mulled wine.
DIY workshops and live painting sessions
You can also get creative at the DIY workshops. In addition to practical sewing tricks, you can make your own Christmas decorations, learn rare printing techniques and much more. Exhibitions and live painting sessions by various artists round off the programme.
