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.

Christmas Market Stade

The smell of mulled wine and roasted almonds blows through the alleys of the old town, enchanting Christmas lights make the old town shine and children's eyes shine when Santa Claus strolls through the town.

Heide Winterworld

If there is a smell of gingerbread, roasted almonds and mulled wine between Böttcher-Rondell and St.-Jürgen-Kirche, then this can only mean one thing: The Heide winter world is open.

Winter fairy tale Buxtehude
