Berlin is a fairytale in lights at Christmas. It has around 60 traditional Christmas markets with cultural events, endless shopping opportunities and unusual winter attractions. Get into the Christmas spirit at evocative festive concerts, or on Gendarmenmarkt square, the historical setting for the 'WeihnachtsZauber', one of Berlin's prettiest and most magical Christmas markets. Other seasonal highlights include 'Winterwelt auf dem Potsdamer Platz' with toboggan run (30 Oct 2010-2 Jan 2011) winter fun at the ice rink on Alexanderplatz square, the Cultural Christmas market in Wilmersdorfer Strasse, a Christmas market at the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church (22 Nov 2010-2 Jan 2011), the Hanukkah market at the Jewish Museum, 'Sternenzauber' in the Sony Center, the Great Berlin Christmas market stretching from Alexanderstrasse all the way to Alexanderplatz and 'Berliner Weihnachtszeit' around the Red Town Hall (22 Nov - 26 Dec 2021).
