Advent at St. Markus

24th of November until 22nd of December 2022

Organic hot mulled wine, cranberry punch and regional delicacies - the small but cosy Christmas Market in front of the St. Markus Church will again offer many regional and sustainable-use products this year.

With its colourful stalls, the many fir trees and a historic carousel, the Christmas market is a cosy alternative to the large, sprawling markets in the city. As in previous years, there will be a fine programme for young and old in 2022. Wednesday afternoon is reserved for our young guests and will be visited by artists, puppeteers and other surprise guests. Thursday heralds the weekend with after-work sounds.

Nostalgic flair and regionality

Nostalgia and sustainability are the hallmarks of this cosy, family-oriented Advent market. Visitors and guests will find regional products, fairly produced goods and many activities with and for children. The nostalgic children's carousel will make the little ones' eyes light up, while Christmas classics such as crêpes and lard pastries, but also organic mulled wine, cranberry punch, cocoa and many other regional delicacies will delight the palates of young and old. The red mulled wine in organic quality contains less sugar and is also supplied in 1000l containers, thus considerably reducing packaging waste. And the homemade apple punch is produced with juice from "Das Geld hängt an den Bäumen" (The money hangs on the trees) and thus supports social projects in the city.

Charity campaign for homeless people

A major aim of St. Mark's Advent is to support charitable causes and do good: true to the spirit of Christmas. Under the motto "Pack Dein Päckchen" (Pack your parcel), all visitors are invited to hand in gift parcels for homeless people at the mulled wine stall and in the church during the Advent season. The parcels will be handed over to the needy by the organiser bjp at the traditional Hamburg Christmas dinner in the Hofbräuhaus.

Hygiene and care products as well as warm clothing and accessories & soul-warming items such as pictures, sweets are traditionally gratefully accepted.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Eimsbüttel & Eppendorf

Here, one can find magnificent old building façades, local and exquisite restaurants as well as fancy boutiques and owner-operated shops. While Eppendorf is rather fancy, one can feel the hanseatic serenity in Eimsbüttel. Both districts offer much green and water and are hence with good reason very popular neighbourhoods in Hamburg.
