Winter Highlights

BIKINI BERLIN presents new Winter-Highlights in Berlin:

Unique Christmals Market – culinary delights & ice curling on the rooftop terrace


For anyone looking for gift ideas that are both fantastic and individual, BIKINI BERLIN’s Concept Shopping Mall is THE Christmas shopping location in the German capital. Visitors will find a large selection of gifts at the mall’s boutiques, concept and flagship stores, pop-up BOXES and also at the first BIKINI BERLIN Christmas market of unique design items. Additional highlights of this year’s winter season include an ice curling rink and a street food market on the rooftop terrace.



On the last three Advent weekends the BIKINI BERLIN Concept Shopping Mall is surprising its visitors with a Christmas market with a unique twist. On each of the three weekends there will be different sellers, who will be presenting their original gift ideas and unique design products in small wooden stalls. More than 40 vendors, spread around the mall’s ground and first floors, will be setting up shop, including DaWanda, the online marketplace for unique and self-made items, as well as a number of stores from the Concept Shopping Mall. Beautiful accessories by La Fraise Rouge, Petida, ElectroPulli and Little Man Happy, jewellery by Geiles Herz, Elicamente and Pictofactum, as well as interior décor by Fundamental, Promobo and LJ Lamps – the Christmas market of unique design items is the place to come to find one-off, individual Christmas gifts.
