THE list of which one is when, and where.

Looking for a complete list of the Christmas Markets in Berlin? We've scoured the net locating each market and updating our December events list to bring you the most comprehensive list of Weinachtsmarkt in Berlin, in English, and we're still updating as more information/new markets are advertised. Know of another? Let us know!

Are you ready?

Naturally, there's a top 5 or top 10 Christmas markets list on most websites and we have our own Top 5 favourites Christmas markets this year, of course, but we are breaking this article down into the month, advent weekends, and one-offs, just so you can browse it all a bit easier.

All well as the usual suspects of the large commercial market, you'll also be able to visit a local Kiez (suburb) market where community come together to celebrate and support the local craftspeople in the area, it's likely there's one where you live. Or, enjoy the various nationalities communities celebrating in Berlin, like the Latin American, Asian, or English markets.

Ok? Here we go

The Big Kohunas of Christmas Markets in Berlin are the large inner city markets. Often just a stone's throw away from each other, these markets are laden with huts housing goods for sale, a plethora of different foods and many versions of mulled wine or hot chocolates. Commercial as they may seem, they are also extremely accessible by Berlin's public transport system, which is also why they are popular. Good things there's a bunch of them though, then each one can cope with the number of people in Berlin at Christmas time.

Most of the big ones open in Mon 26th November, with a couple of exceptions listed first,

Advent weekend markets are a popular Christmas market to attend. Some are on each weekend in December, some only one weekend. The charm here is that although every Christmas Market can fee a bit 'samey', these Kiez markets are particular to the neighbourhood hosting them, and they support their local community. Pick one every weekend to visit, or pick them all and do a tour!
