Nice biergarten with very good currywurst ! Also close to the tv tower. ( 5 min walk ) the hop on... More

I came here as a tourist and I found interesting this place for shopping! I recommend you visit this place during the Christmas season because there are many stalls selling products and typical food really tasty!

Myself and my husband have just returned from a trip to Berlin, where on the stay we managed to go to three Christmas markets including this one, Gendarmanmarkt and also the one in Jannowitzbrucke and I enjoyed each one for very different reasons. I liked this one because we got there quite late about 9pm and there wasn't the massive... More

I think that Christmas market at the Alexander Platz is the best in Berlin. Has all German traditional food and entertainments. Lots of fun for children too: ski ring, merry go round and even lovely donkey's ride... Plus - good shopping around and beautiful Dome.

We visited here during the evening and I have to say this is the best atmosphere for Christmas spirit you can find. The lighting the open fires crackling and the mould wine all combined together to create A fantastic ambience. We tried our hand at the ice skating rink which was only three Euros and very good value for money.... More

View and experience the architecture around the famous television tower, then perhaps visit the expansive department store Galeria and outside, during December, the expansive and ornamentally decorated Christmas Market stalls offering a wide variety of foods, snacks and handicrafts. Galeria is a large store and worth a walk through to experience the extensive range of wares including their Christmas selections... More

There were 3 Christmas markets in this vicinity, with something for everybody. The usual food and crafty stall, Bars and fairground rides with the biggest mobile big wheel in Europe, or so it says. All this sited around some excellent shops, you cant go wrong with this one.

This Christmas market was by far one of my favorites. It had a beautiful Christmas shop that sold baubles that were beautiful. The market itself was spread out and relaxing.
