  • Browse Christmas crafts and decorations and sample regional delicacies
  • See the markets at Schloss Charlottenburg and Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church
  • Keep warm with mulled wine or hot chocolate (own expense)
  • Learn about the city's landmarks from your guide as you go
Begin outside the Restaurant Weihenstephaner, next to the Hackescher Markt train station. Head first into the heart of old West Berlin, to the iconic Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. Browse over 100 booths that have set up shop around the church, offering sweet waffles, decorations, clothing, and other treats.
Continue to Spandau, home to one of the largest Christmas markets in Germany with a slightly more local vibe. The market winds around the oldest church in Berlin, the 14th-century St. Nicholas Church, and features Christmas tunes from a live brass band.
Your final stop is the impressive Charlottenburg Palace. Located just before the palace gates, this Christmas market hosts around 250 vendors as well as a variety of rides for children. Learn the history behind this former summer residence for the House of Hohenzollern, a dynasty of former princes, electors, kings, and emperors, and warm up with a hot chocolate or traditional Christmas Glühwein (own expense). Your tour will conclude here.

It was ok. Tour guide was good, accomodating. But I can say with the hop on hop off bus u can visit anybxmas market on your own. So there’s no need for nthentour guide unless you really wanted to have a brief history of the market.

Such a great tour! Our guide, Kathinka, was so wonderful and shared so much interesting history with us. She took us to three markets that were all very different from one another. Wish the tour was longer! Would have liked to have stayed at each location a little longer but otherwise it was a fabulous tour!

If you only have a few days and don't know the city, this tour really does the job with the added bonus of a guide who really knows Berlin, it's history and culture. So you not only enjoy the Christmas markets, but also get to learn about the city. He was able to answer all the questions in depth during our tour and inform on the many and varied topics. Excellent.

Interesting tour, but not overwhelmingly so. Guide was Alex? Portugues/American. Nice guy but the nature of the tour is to take patients to the markets and let them wander around for an hour. Not too demanding on him, even if he was entirely pleasant and more than competent. gwolfe

This tour was fantastic! Alex was an amazing guide and took us to three markets, two of which I would not have known about without the help of a Berliner! The balance between free time and help from our guide was perfect.

Tour guide was friendly and very knowlegeable but was not easy to follow as he walked, as he had no identification eg hat or flag.

The tour could have been improved with the service of a bus to take the tourist group to each of the three markets.
