Winter Market Schlossplatz Berlin Mitte

Christmas Market in Berlin from 1 December 2023 to 7 January 2024

Cette année, les alentours du Humboldt Forum prennent des airs de Noël. Le nouveau marché d'hiver sur la place historique du château apporte une ambiance joyeuse dans le centre historique de Berlin. La dernière fois, la grande roue et les stands de Noël étaient installés devant les ruines du Palais de la République.

In keeping with the historical setting, there is plenty of arts and crafts and historical craftsmanship to marvel at at the new winter market in Berlin's Mitte district. Watch the fragile figures being created over a flame at the glassblower's stall. Nativity figures are made at the woodcarving workshop, and the candle stall smells of beeswax.

Stroll through the lovingly decorated rows of stalls. You are sure to find an ornament for the Christmas tree or an individual gift. Leather goods, wooden toys, paintings and warming winter accessories are part of the diverse range on offer.

Old play stalls, historic rides and merry-go-rounds entice younger guests to enjoy Christmas fun. And for the grown-ups, there are mulled wine specialities and all kinds of sweet and hearty Christmas delicacies.
