The Christmas market at the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin lures us. Christmas and the weeks before are always a time for us to visit Christmas markets. The first advent weekend we spend in Berlin. "What could be better to do at this time of the year than going to a Christmas market?" We ask ourselves and decide to take a look at a market that we had heard a lot of good things about: the Christmas market on Gendarmenmarkt in the center of Berlin.

The Christmas market at the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin

We do not yet know this place and are overwhelmed by the setting in front of which this Advent market takes place: the tents, under which the market stalls are located, stand on the square, which is surrounded by two impressive church buildings - the German Cathedral on one side of the square and the French Friedrichstadtkirche on the other side. Behind the market tents, the magnificent façade of the Konzerthaus Berlin towers above the square. All three buildings, like the tents in front of them, shine in a festive glow of Christmas, and a Christmas tree that is so densely lit up that you can barely see the green of the tree completes the picture that presents itself. Our first impression of this Christmas market at the Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin takes our breath away. Beautiful!

 

 

When we want to enter the Christmas market at Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin, we are slowed down and sent back to the cash register. "A Christmas market that you have to pay for?" I think to myself. "This is something new." Admission costs just one euro per person, but this measure has the unpleasant side effect that space is limited, because the number of visitors is obviously not limited. And so more and more people flock to the fenced-in area where the Christmas market at Gendarmenmarkt in Berlin takes place, and are crowding closer and closer together.
