A Few Important Things To Note About Berlin Christmas Market Dates

Having lived in Germany for many years, we’ve learned the hard way that opening dates aren’t always as they seem, so here are a few quick things to note about the following dates:

Note that some markets have exceptional closure dates

While you’ll see that most dates for these Berlin Christmas markets are given as date ranges, there are still certain days when you can expect the market to be completely closed.

Totensonntag, AKA the Sunday of the Dead for example is usually a silent holiday during which markets are closed.

Most Berlin Christmas markets seem to open after this date, but just be mindful of it in your planning.

Likewise, many Christmas markets close on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, or have special hours on those days, so keep that in mind as well.

Many Berlin Christmas markets are open only on weekends

Sometimes Christmas markets will offer a date range that they’re open, and hide somewhere in the details that they’re actually JUST open for weekends during this period.

It’s a bit annoying, but more a design flaw of their websites than anything else, so be sure to double check the opening days of the Christmas markets you’re interested in and verify that they ARE open on the days you plan to visit.

We noticed that especially for Berlin (moreso than other cities I’ve visited), there tend to be pop-up markets open only on weekends rather than for the entire season.

Some Berlin Christmas Markets are only open for one day, and only for a few hours!

Lastly, bear in mind that many specialty Christmas markets in Berlin are only open for one day the entire season. Don’t get your hopes up like me for a really cool-sounding market, only to discover that they aren’t open throughout the season.

FYI, there IS a dog-themed Christmas market that sells treats, toys, etc. and features many floofs in knitted sweaters.
