What You Can Expect

Berlin Christmas Markets Walking Tour

Experience German traditions at a Berlin Christmas Market!

This Christmas market tour in Berlin begins at the Zoologischer Garten Station, then set out to visit three of the most attractive markets in the city in an almost fairy tale setting.  

The first stop is Spandau, the fourth biggest and westernmost borough in Berlin, which boasts one of the largest Christmas markets in all of Germany, yet it’s seldom visited by tourists. The market is centered around the oldest church in Berlin, the fourteenth century St. Nicholas Church, or the St. Nikolai-Kirche, a perfect setting to enjoy the festivities.

The next stop is the magnificent Charlottenburg Palace, one of the most famous sites in Berlin, where the Christmas market has been a local favorite for many years. Learn about the rich history behind this former summer residence for the House of Hohenzollern, a dynasty of former princes, electors, kings and emperors.

Finally, finish the tour at the Protestant Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, the iconic landmark of West Berlin, to learn about the rich history in this part of town.

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.

This is a must do for anyone who wants to experience the famous Christmas markets in Germany. Finn our guide made this a very interesting experience, with his knowledge of the historical facts of each location we visited. The Charlottenburg castle and Christmas market was the best.

It is a must as you get an overview of the city which you can then explore on your own.

Our guide, Alex, took us to Spandau where we saw a lovely medieval old town and church. The Christmas market was different from those in Berlin. We also went to Charlottenburg castle and Christmas market. Alex was very knowledgeable of historical facts and flavor. I highly recommend this tour.

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.

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
