When are Berlin’s Christmas markets opening this year?

Berlin is home to over 60 Christmas markets throughout the festive season, so this is a question that needs to be answered dozens of times for each individual market.

Don’t worry though – if you’re totally overwhelmed with all the Christmas market opening dates in Berlin, we’ve collected them neatly into a table for all your planning needs!

We hope you find it useful.

NOTE: Many dates are still TBA, but we’ve included the officially confirmed dates that have already been released. Keep in mind though that while Christmas markets in Berlin are currently planned for 2021, plans can always change depending on how cases develop.

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.

Berlin Christmas Market Dates 2021 – A Full List W/ A Table

This table below summarizes the opening dates of Berlin Christmas markets for 2021, created mostly with help from the official Visit Berlin website.

This info is sourced directly from them, but mistakes and typos do happen so I would recommend a quick Google to double check opening times/dates before you head out.
