Security Information

As the organizer of WeihnachtsZauber Gendarmenmarkt we are acutely aware of our special responsibility for the safety of our visitors. Ensuring a safe and secure enjoyment of the market for everybody has always been a top priority for us. That’s why we are working with a security company which only employs qualified and certified personnel.

Since 2011 we have been applying even more stringent security measures at the market in close cooperation with police, LKA and the Senate of the Interior.

Due to recent events we have increased our security measures for this year’s market. Nevertheless, we want to ensure you can fully enjoy the stage programme and the all the other splendid events throughout the market.

Part of our security concept is:

  1. WeihnachtsZauber Gendarmenmarkt takes place within a closed area with 4 strictly controlled entrance points. The Entrance checks will be performed by qualified and certified security personnel.
  2. All bags will be checked.
  3. If needed we will expel those causing trouble from the market grounds.
  4. With immediate effect we do not allow suitcases, board cases and backpacks to be brought to the market grounds.
  5. Security personnel will be clearly noticeable.


We wish you an enjoyable Christmas season.
