Weihnachtsrummel on Landsberger Allee

Christmas Market in Berlin from 3 November to 30 December 2023

Thrills instead of contemplation: the Christmas Market Frankfurter 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.

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 Frankfurter 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.
