Not all Christmas Markets in Germany are as quaint and romantic as the Gendarmen Market in Berlin. Many of the markets are more like the one at Potsdamer Platz which is clearly a commercially driven market with fun rides,  chain food outlets,  a few handicraft stores.

What makes the Potsdamer Platz Christmas market a little unusual though is the 500 sqm Ice World ramp. A more than 20 meter high  and 50 meter long ramp was built right on the Potsdamer Platz Station, and iced over.  People can then hire four "rides" in a tire down the iced ramp for about EUR 1.50.  Great fun.  Shot a short video of one of the rides.
