In the weeks before Christmas, the shops, arcades and department stores once again regale their visitors with glittering lights, their windows present the most beautiful gift ideas to linger and dream about; the scent of cinnamon and roasted almonds wafts from the Christmas markets.

One highlight of this special atmosphere on each of the four Saturdays in advent is the Hamburg Christmas parade. The colourful, joyful procession through the city centre is an experience for the entire family.

Let the magic carry you away

On each of the four Advent Saturdays the colourful, cheerful procession leads through the city centre. Santa Clauses, elves and reindeer start at 14:00 and 17:00 from Galeria Kaufhof/SATURN, respectively, through Mönckebergstraße to Jungfernstieg.
