Take your time and enjoy a stroll through Hamburg's shopping streets. In Advent, a shopping stroll through the festively decorated arcades and streets around the town hall and the Jungfernstieg is particularly atmospheric. Here you can buy everything your heart desires, from designer labels to crazy gift ideas and technology - and always have a stopover at one of the beautiful Christmas markets. The shops in the city centre and also in the large shopping centres are usually open Monday to Saturday from 10 am to 8 pm. In the pre-Christmas period, many shops offer more time for gift shopping in addition to the very popular "gift wrapping service": on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, many shops in the city centre are open until 9 pm. If the weather is bad, a trip to the numerous shopping centres - with large parking spaces right in front of the door - is definitely worthwhile.
The Advent season in Hamburg would not be the same without its enchanting Christmas markets. At a total of 14 markets, the entire range of pre-Christmas delights can be experienced with all the senses. Here no one can escape the magic of Christmas Eve.
