Winter magic in Advent at Wendenschloss lido

Christmas market in Berlin on all Advent weekends 2023

Christmas market and winter sports: the Wendenschloss lido offers an extensive programme on all Sundays in Advent, including curling, mulled wine rides on fireplace-heated rafts.

Where bathers cavort in the summer, glittering lights shine in the Advent season. The lido at Wendenschloss is transformed into a festive Christmas world. Numerous activities such as curling and ice skating make the outing an experience for the whole family.

Christmas decorated stalls offer cabaret and various delicacies. Warm up with a cup of hot punch or mulled wine by the bonfire. Various winter games and the Wendeschloss Christmas Karaoke will keep you entertained. 

Christmas brunch and dinner

At the Strandcafé Nino you can join friends and family for brunch on weekends from 10am to 2pm or warm up between skating and curling. On Saturdays you can also indulge in a Christmas dinner. (from 6pm, please book)

Mulled wine raft trips

A very special highlight are the fireplace-heated mulled wine raft trips. In addition, there is mulled wine, tea and biscuits to warm you up. Snuggle up in a blanket by the stove and cruise along the Dahme and Spree rivers for four hours while Berlin's glittering Christmas world passes by. There is room for up to twelve people.
