Ice world at the Neptune Fountain:

The Ice world during the christmas season

All around it is on what is probably the largest and most beautiful ice rink in Berlin. The only round ice rink of this type invites young and old to ice-skate on an ice surface of 600 square meters. Anyone who owns ice skates can use the ice rink for free, ice skates can be rented for € 4.00, and the fun always lasts one and a half hours. You can then warm up in one of the large, heated mulled wine bars around the ice rink. As a special service, the organizer offers a sharpening service for new ice skates and for re-sharpening.

The ice skating times are as follows:

12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m. (Sa + Sun 11:15 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.)

2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

8:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m.

Music and dance You can dance to classical music at the ice rink. The Ice world is only open, during the christmas season. Fine refreshments are available at the neighboring Engel Hut.

Market at the Mary’s Church (Marienkirche)

The St. Mary’s church is contemplative. Many artisans offer their goods here. Cozy corners invite you to linger with hot mulled wine, sweet and savory. In the medieval show bakery, the bread is still baked in-house and in the tavern there is hot mead from clay jugs. Please also note the Christmas program and services in the church.

50m panorama ferris wheel

50 meter ferris wheel

The landmark of Berlin’s Christmas season, visible from afar, is the 50m high Ferris wheel, the tallest in Berlin with closed panoramic gondolas. From here the view extends to the Brandenburg Gate, Potsdamer Platz and even to the radio tower. Only the television tower offers a better view. The big wheel of the Berlin Christmas season is not just any old thing: it has been the world-famous landmark of the Munich Oktoberfest for over 30 years.

Santa Claus is coming

Santa Claus comes three times a day for the Berlin Christmas season. With his team of reindeer and an angel in company, he roars through the Berlin air in his sleigh. Daily at 4:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m.

Historical children’s and family rides

There are small and large historical carousels for the little visitors of the Berlin Christmas season. The oldest is over 100 years old. The train travels through the snow-covered fairytale forest, an unforgettable experience that many parents had in their childhood at the Berlin Christmas market. It’s a little livelier in the nostalgic chain carousel at the ice rink. The adults can also go there.
