Christmas market on Gerhart-Hauptmann-Platz

Winter forest in the city center

In the middle of Hamburg's city centre, the Christmas market opens its doors at Christmas time. The Christmas village invites you to eat, drink and rummage in a wintry atmosphere.

Between Karstadt, Thalia-Theater and Perle-Passage, the Christmas market at Gerhart-Hauptmann-Platz turns into the central meeting point at Christmas time. In the traditional winter forest, visitors experience a break from the hustle and bustle of the city centre. A varied cultural programme provides entertainment and a good atmosphere.

Highest Christmas fir trees

The old half-timbered stalls, the natural winter fir forest and a life-size Christmas crib create a Christmas atmosphere. Fans of superlatives watch out: The Christmas market at Gerhart-Hauptmann-Platz is home to one of the highest Christmas fir trees in Hamburg.

Christmas feast

The Christmas market at Gerhart-Hauptmann-Platz offers a variety of food stands. All culinary Christmas classics from mulled wine to gingerbread are on offer. Artisans who demonstrate their skills live and in front of an audience will be sure to get you excited.
