The markets will have just opened, so you're in luck. All are free, except for the market at Gendarmenmarkt which has a nominal fee - €2 I think. The market at the Rotes Rathaus is my personal favourite - there are lots of beer/gluhwein stalls, a whole range of market stalls, an ice rink and a ferris wheel. The others are mainly market stalls, and there is a lot of overlap in what's offered for sale.

My favourite one in the past couple of years was the one at Charlottenburg Palace (Schloß Charlottenburg). All the stalls are in front of the palace and you have everything from food stalls, Glühwein to all kind of other stuff. You might even find the odd christmas present there. What I don't like at some other christmas markets, especially the really big ones, is that you find stalls who sell odd things like socks. Perfectly fine on a normal market but for me personally out of place on a Christmas market. ;-)
