Between Stadthausbrücke and Rödingsmarkt is a clever mixture of Hanseatic tradition and a modern attitude to life. Its proximity to the harbour and the direct connection to the Alster lend the Fleet Christmas market a very special maritime atmosphere.
The delicious Christmas specialities or a contemplative glass of mulled wine with friends or family can help you to forget the hustle and bustle of the pre-Christmas season - in the peaceful tranquillity of a renovated square, without the street noise and glaring lights. Stands with lovely gift items are also an invitation to take a gentle stroll. Meanwhile, the younger visitors can have fun on the children's carousel.
Two maritime noteworthies are vintage sailing ships visiting from the Museumshafen Övelgönne. They passed under the bridges with the mast folded, then raised it once again as a maritime symbol on the quay in the radiant Christmas light.
