Christmas market at the church of St. Petri

Toys and crafts under fir trees

The Christmas market at the Petri church promises an experience for the whole family. During the pre-Christmas period, the area around Hamburg's oldest, still existing church is transformed into a Christmas fir forest. Warm mulled wine and roasted almonds are provided.

Over 200 real fir trees decorate the Christmas market at the Petri church at Christmas time. It's easy to forget that you're in the middle of Hamburg's biggest shopping mile. The lovingly designed Scandinavian-Nordic Christmas huts and illuminated fir trees enchant visitors.

Regional and international delicacies

The Christmas market at the Petri church invites you to browse and feast. High-quality toys, Christmas decorations and unique arts and crafts decorate the sales areas. The Christmas market classics mulled wine, almonds and sausages are complemented by international specialities. Hot Caiprinha and Dutch Poffertjes leave nothing to be desired.

Adventures for young and old

The fairytale forest promises adventure and fun for children. Toy trains and little fairytale worlds can be discovered. A life-size moose and dancing Santa Claus will amaze you. Not only the smallest visitors.
