Italian Christmas market Berlin – Street Food Festival Berlin

From December 8th to the 10th, Christmas arrives in Berlin with the “Italian Street Food Festival – Christmas Klimbim Edition“: gastronomes, producers and Italian designers will gather at a brand-new venue, the Arena Market(Eichenstraße 4a, 12435 Berlin).

Outdoor there will be a street food area featuring numerous Italian traditional Christmas recipes and more: caldarroste (roasted chestnuts), polenta, baccalà (cod fish), torrone, lasagna, arrosticini (meat skewers), tortellini in broth, tiramisu, cannoli, pizza, arancini, pasta and many other specialties prepared by the best Italian restaurants in Berlin.

But that’s not all! Inside you’ll find various design items (illustrations, jewelry, soaps, bags, books, vinyl records…) and Italian gourmet products (artisanal panettone, pistachio cream, liqueurs, wines, olive oil), perfect ideas for some Christmas gifts with an Italian touch. And don’t miss out our special Italian winter drinks as Vin brulè (Glühwein) and Glühmoncello (hot limoncello). There will also be a large kids area and a Christmas-themed photo booth.


To liven up the atmosphere there is a vibrant entertainment program: Friday night features an Italo Disco party until late in the night; Saturday and Sunday afternoons offer Italian karaoke (making its return after its success at the Italian Street Food Festival this summer); on Saturday at 2.30pm we will host the presentation of the latest book by Alberto Madrigal, illustrator and colorist of Zerocalcare’s comics, followed by two outstanding concerts: Daiana Lou on Saturday night and Crucchi Gang (duo version) on Sunday night.

Admission is 4 € but is free for children up to 12 years old. As always, there will be a photo contest with three exceptional Christmas baskets as prizes.
