All reviews christmas market beautiful square concert hall mulled wine french cathedral pretty square deutscher dom fassbender rausch chocolate shop stalls selling opera house bratwurst food stalls entrance fee worth a visit unter den linden checkpoint charlie
I loved every moment at this beautiful Christmas Market. Nothing says European Christmas like a Christmas Market at night with the lights and wonderful street food and drink. I especially love the mulled wine.
One of the most busy and beautiful square. The premises has three structures of which two are identical and opposite each other. This place is throbbing with people street vendors, food stalls and artisans. People drinking beer and cycling and people with skates. Very very...More
My partner and I went to Berlin for a pre-Christmas break, and to experience the Christmas Markets.
GendarmeMarkt was our first and was very good indeed. There were some stalls charging high prices for Christmas decorations and nic-naks, but plenty of really good food stalls....More
Arguably the most beautiful square in Berlin. There are three rather impressive buildings: the German and French Cathedrals as well as the Schinkel’s Konzerthaus. And just round the corner is the famous Rausch Schokoladenhaus.
Full of colors, lights, wooden houses with beer, wurst, crepes, chocolates antiques, candles and other tourist objects. Very alive during the night with live concerts and very crowded. Take an umbrella cause there is no place to cover yourself. Eat, drink and dance!
Gendarmenmarkt is a lovely little square to visit anytime, but it's best to visit when the Christmas market is there. It's €1 entry per person to get into the market, but it's never over crowded which is great. There's lots of little craft, food &...More
the Christmas market is really nice and reflect exactly the traditions. The entrance costs 1€ . But be attention, at the entrance policemen throw away water bottle from your bags, like at the airport... I think is not correct. Anyway everything there is so cute!!

Opens at 11am and closes at 10pm. It’s not huge but there is a big range of lots of crafty stuff and handmade bits also don’t forget to pick up a gluhwein mug as a souvenir. The covered stores are the best for quality but the prices do reflect that. It’s reasonable at most stores, majority are food and drink but there are plenty of gift and craft stalls. Also it’s a one euro charge to enter after 2pm I think but it might be 4pm. Also better in the evening as there is live music and choirs. Enjoy
Should we book a hotel room close to the Brandenburg Gate during the reunification festival Oct. 2015 or are the crowds and amusement festivities just too much? Should we stay around the Gendarmenmarkt Square area for a less "carnival" atmosphere?

Which hotel did you have in mind? The Adlon? Cause that's the only one that would be affected.
4 days in Berlin - itinerary help please (5 Replies)
Hello TripaAdvisor community, I'll be visiting Berlin next week and have spent some time coming up with an itinerary. Would love some feedback and any recommendations on places I may have missed. Also we love trying local food (currywurst is already on the to-do list) so I'd really appreciate some suggestions for good, traditional (not too expensive) places to eat around Mitte.

Looks already pretty good, I'd say. What do you intend to see or do in Grunewald forest, the Gleis 17 memorial at the station? Wouldn't it be better and easier to visit Kurfuerstendamm and Tauentzienstrasse with the KaDeWe department store in former West Berlin instead, if you already are in Tiergarten and Charlottenburg? I don't think Tuesday is packed. You'll need some time for the Topography of Terror and the Jewish Museum, but East Side Gallery, the river and Oberbaumbridge won't...More
8h Layover in Berlin (3 Replies)
I am landing at Berlin Tegel Airport at 10.35am on a Monday and depart on the same day at 8.15pm. I have a 7-8h layover and will to leave Berlin City at 5pm to catch my next transport.

You know that is impossible. One would suggest to spent at least 4 days in Berlin. With your limited time, see what you want to do the most. Some attractions you might be able to walk from one to another. But you can not do all of what you described in a couple hours. No way
