Christmas in the Metropolitan Region

Christmas markets around Hamburg

When Advent begins, the towns and villages around the Hanseatic City lure with their rustic and cosy Christmas markets, each with its own charm. Traditional craft markets - at manor houses, castles or museums - promise atmospheric hours in the countryside with the scent of charcoal stoves and beeswax candles.

Christmas Market Fehmarn

It smells of punch, the market place shimmers in a festive light, people stand together, live music plays and the ambience is wonderfully cosy! Fehmarn presents itself as a Christmas island and puts its guests in a special Christmas mood.
