Even from afar you can see the glittering lights of the rides at the Winter Magic. This Christmas market and fair in Lichtenberg attracts visitors with its many festive and colourful attractions and stalls covering an area of 20,000 square metres.

Colourful Christmas fair

Let's go to the Christmas fair in Lichtenberg. Here, stalls and rides shine in a colourful glow of lights. The smell of mulled wine, roasted almonds and freshly baked waffles wafts through the air. 

The Winter Magic on Landsberger Allee and the large Ikea car park is the successor to the Winter Dream in front of the Alexa department stores' and attracts families and funfair enthusiasts in particular with a wide range of attractions.

Those who can hardly wait for Christmas will be pleased to know that Winterzauber Berlin opens its season at the beginning of November. This makes it the first Christmas market in the whole of Germany. The big high-altitude fireworks display is sure to be a record-breaker.
