Two of the most popular markets in the German capital are Alexanderplatz and the Berliner Weihnachtszeit.

Alexanderplatz is known for it's Christmas 'pyramid', where guests can enjoy mulled wine and Christmas fare, live music and panoramic city views, while the Weihnachstzeit market is a favourite because of its fairground rides - including an Oktoberfest-style Ferris whee, ice rink and petting zoo.
