The special feature of this Christmas market is its location: Set up in front of the famous Charlottenburg Palace, about 250 vendors display and sell nostalgic Christmas crafts such as nativity figures and tree decorations. Traditional German Christmas sweets like stollen, spritz biscuits and marzipan loaves are available at the market too.
Charlottenburg Palace, parts of the extensive castle grounds and the Christmas market itself are festively illuminated. The smells of gingerbread, mulled wine, freshly-baked bread from a wood-fired oven and other savoury snacks stimulate the appetite and add to the Christmas atmosphere.
The Royal Christmas Market in front of the old orangery offers special treats for the little ones. Historic and nostalgic fairground attractions such as a big wheel, different merry-go-rounds and tiny rollercoasters keep the children busy while the parents quietly discuss Christmas presents and sip mulled wine.
