The whole of Alexanderplatz turns into a massive Christmas market with many small wooden huts during the festive season. Under the shadow of the TV Tower, potters, blacksmiths and glassblowers display their work and Christmas treats, crafts and many more gift ideas are on offer.
The centrepiece of the market is Europe's largest Christmas pyramid with more than 5,000 lights that add a festive glow to the seasonal bustle on Alexanderplatz. Visitors can enjoy a mulled wine and hearty Christmas meals on the ground floor of the pyramid, while the first floor offers a spacious panoramic view of the market and a brass band holds forth on the second floor. The classic top of the pyramid is decorated with carved figures, tirelessly making their rounds.
