The Advent season is the most beautiful time of the year for each of us for a personal reason. Cookies and chocolate for breakfast are allowed, the mulled wine thaws the minds and a sea of lights transforms the grey landscape into a sparkling dream world.
The Christmas market on Fleetinsel combines the Hanseatic lifestyle with the Christmas atmosphere. The scent of Christmas spices is in the air and the Christmas lights are reflected in the Fleet. With the opening of the Christmas market on Fleetinsel, the pre-Christmas joy finally arrives in the Speicherstadt. And the best part: the Christmas market is located right at the door of Ruby Lotti. With such a short way home there is not too much mulled wine.
Sometimes mulled wine is not enough to warm you up and you would much rather drink in a cozy cafe and delicious coffee. We would do a lot for good coffee, but you don’t have to do much, but just walk a few blocks to arrive at the Nord Coast Coffee Roastery, one of the best places for good coffee in town. An absolutely cosy and nice place for your breakfast as well.
Once you're dressed warm, you can go out again. And if you're lucky, you won't see Hamburg in the rain in winter, but in the snow. For this scenario, you can enjoy the harbour of Hamburg also in the pre-Christmas time from its most beautiful side. Hamburg Tourism has put together a walk that we can only praise. Accompany us on along the Elbe and experience maritime Christmas up close.
In December, the Hamburg Exhibition Centre is transformed into a gigantic pop-up concept store for a weekend. On approximately 3000 square metres, hand-picked creative people present a wild mix of fashion, jewellery and product design, home accessories, small furniture, art, photography, graphics, comics, literature and much more. With mulled wine in your hand, you can casually stroll through the sacred halls to the sound of popular DJ's. This might be the ideal spot to buy all Christmas presents at one day and avoid last minute stress.
Whether on your own, with family or friends – Santa Pauli has something to offer everyone! At Hamburg's coolest Christmas market, there is no distinction between Christmas tradition and frivolous Kiez live. Santa Pauli attracts crowds with its live music on stage and hot angles in the Santa Pauli strip tent. An the stalls in between, there is everything that should be at a Kiez Christmas market.
