As every year, the Christmas markets of the nordic seamen's churches are a popular destination for Scandinavia fans and northern lights.
On two weekends in November, visitors can enjoy traditional delicacies and regional specialities from Sweden, Finland, Norway and Denmark in a typical Nordic Christmas atmosphere.
The Christmas bazaars of the Finnish Seamen's Church (Dietmar-Koel-Str. 6), the Norwegian Seamen's Church (Dietmar-Koel-Str. 4), the Danish Benediktekirken (Dietmar-Koel-Str. 2) and the Swedish Gustav-Adolf-Kyrkan (Dietmar-Koel-Str. 36) will take place from 11-13 November and 18-20 November 2022. For many guests, a visit to the Christmas bazaars is the contemplative start to Advent.
Already a firm tradition for many people in Hamburg, the Swedish Lucia Concert takes place in December in the main church of St. Petri, where the choir rings in the Christmas season with bell-like songs. The Queen of Lights dressed in white followed by the Lucia Choir brings joy and brightness through the many candles into the dark days of the ending year. The concert will take place on 13 December at 7.30 pm (tickets: Konzertkasse Gerdes as well as box office). "Varmt välkommen"!
