Italian Christmas Market: not only street food but also art and design

Italy is synonymous with food and handicrafts. At the Italian Christmas Market, you can find all this and live a 100% Made in Italy experience. There will be Italian artisans, portrait painters, illustrators, designers… Italian artists, Berlin residents, or simply lovers of Italian culture. You will be able to see them at work, have a chat, and take home special and personalized gifts for you and your loved ones: dozens of selected creations and products await you. But that’s not all: in the fabulous location of Glashaus and Badeschiff (next to the Arena Halle), you will also find the best-loved Italian food products, a photo booth, and DJ sets. The entry fee is € 4, while it is free for children up to 12 years old.

The location: Glashaus e Badeschiff (next to the Arena Halle)

The market will take place both outdoors and indoors, in the beautiful and atmospheric location of the Glashaus and Badeschiff. The outdoor area will host street food stands and a bar. The indoor area, on the other hand, will host food stands and a second bar along with arts and crafts stands. Both areas will be enlivened by DJ sets, making it even more magical to stroll among the exhibitors while enjoying one of the many Italian delicacies offered during the festival.
