    Woodcarvers from the Tyrol, gingerbread bakers from Aachen and Nuremberg, ceramics from Lausitz, silversmiths and many others welcome you to marvel, participate, taste and enjoy.

    Every year at Christmastime, against the impressive backdrop of the venerable, historic Town Hall of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, approximately eighty traders arrive for one of the city's largest and loveliest Christmas markets.

    The lovingly designed market architecture by Roncalli director Bernhard Paul makes the Christmas market stand out from the conventional pre-Christmas events in other cities. A particular point of attraction is the Spielzeuggasse (toy street). This is where merchants from around the world offer toys that make not only children's hearts beat faster.


    From 26 November 2018 to 23 December 2018:

    • Daily 11 am - 09 pm
    • Friday & Saturday until 10 pm

    The flying Father Christmas

    Hold tight to your mulled wine: every day at 4pm, 6pm and 8pm, Father Christmas and his sleigh hover above the historical Christmas market in front of Hamburg Town Hall.
