In Berlin’s “Kollwitzkiez” neighbourhood within the area known as Prenzlauer Berg1, a big Christmas market takes place inside the site of the former brewery Kulturbrauerei2. The Christmas market has a decidedly Scandinavian feel with the Swedish Lucia legend as the bringer of light at the beginning of a dark northern winter.
The 2016 version runs November 21 to December 22 inclusive. There is no charge for entry with operating hours: Monday to Friday from 3pm to 10pm, and weekends 1pm to 10pm. The nearest metro station is Eberswalder Straße (U-Bahn U2) with connections to rams 12, M1, and M10.
1At present this is contained within the Berlin administrative borough of Pankow.
2 The Kulturbrauerei is listed in the European Route of Industrial Heritage.
