Where people come together, celebrate and enjoy the beautiful moments of life, at the same time our social commitment is required. Therefore WeihnachtsZauber Gendarmenmarkt is donating a significant amount of its entrance fees to charity. Together with our cooperation partners in business we are supporting people in need. Under the motto “my Berlin, my city” we engage in numerous social and cultural projects. Focus since 2003 is primarily the promotion of socially disadvantaged children and homeless people. Especially our own charity project, the annual “summer camp” in the Tyrolean Alps, has been enabled Berlin school children from socially deprived districts to experience “Healthy Food and Exercise” for the past 8 years.
Summer Camp Zillertal
This is the slogan for a summer camp for Children of Berlin, organized by the „WeihnachtsZauber Gendarmenmarkt“ in the Tirolian Alpes. It is an own project by the WeihnachhtsZauber Gendarmenmarkt. For 8 years the organizer Helmut Russ take school children of the Anna-Lindh-School in Berlin-Wedding with them to the Zillertal, supported by the top-rated chefs like Franz Rahneburger, Leander Roerdink-Veldboom and Kolja Kleeberg.
Some 30 Children who have earned their ticket for this trip by their extraordinary social commitment will travel into the fascinating mountains. They will participate in challenging sport activities as hiking, climbing and rafting and they will learn how to keep a healthy diet and how to prepare such meals themselves.
