Weihnachtsrummel on Landsberger Allee

Christmas market in Berlin from November 22 to December 23, 2021

Thrills instead of contemplation: the Christmas Market Landsberger Allee is great fun for the whole family with a number of carousels and rides. With colourful flashing lights, the air is filled with screeching and shouting and the atmosphere is high-spirited.

Please note: The 2G rule and mandatory masks apply at all Christmas markets. 

Adventure and thrills at the Christmas market

Rides and stands for all ages promise action and entertainment. Classics include throwing and shooting galleries, carousels, roller coasters, a hall of mirrors and bumper cars. Highlights are the 80-metre-high swing carousel and the huge Christmas pyramid. The Chaos-Air-Port is a unique fun house. It is a varied obstacle course with a hall of mirrors and smoke chamber, where the floor is pulled away from under your feet.   
Afterwards you can relax in the cosy Berlin village with seating areas and fireplaces.

You can also satisfy your hunger with popular Christmas market classics such as Krakauer sausage, kale and mulled wine. You will of course also find sweet treats such as roasted almonds, candy apples and candy floss at the stalls.

Funfair with a long tradition

The Christmas Market on Landsberger Allee is the successor to the popular Wintertraum am Alexa. It is the oldest Christmas market with a funfair in Berlin’s eastern districts. It all started in 1920 at the Lustgarten in Mitte, where there was already a wooden carousel and a wooden roller coaster. After several stopovers at Schlossplatz, Alexanderplatz, the Planetarium, Platz der Vereinten Nationen and Alexa, the market has now moved to its new location at Landsberger Allee.

Our tips for your visit to the Christmas Market on Landsberger Allee

Wednesdays are always children’s and family days, when the tickets for the rides are cheaper. Santa Claus is there every day and listens to children’s wishes.
As a memento of the Christmas fun, the market has its own mug, featuring the winning design fans voted for on Facebook.
For all those interested in technology, it is worth visiting the Kesselhaus Herzberge Museum, which provides information about 100 years of industrial history and exhibits three huge boilers at their original place of use. The medical history exhibition presents the history of the Pflegeanstalt Herzberge (Herzberge Hospital) and the Königin Elisabeth Hospital (Queen Elisabeth Hospital).

The nearby Don Xuan Center is Berlin’s largest Asian market with a huge selection of food as well as clothing, massages and manicures in eight halls.
