Pretty Blankenese with its steep streets, quaint fishermen’s houses and lush villas towering high above the river Elbe is often lauded for its Mediterranean vibe. In winter, Blankenese is just as enchanting as in summer. Opposite S-Bahn station Blankenese, a cosy Christmas market invites visitors to traditional eggnog, mulled wine and a wide variety of snacks. Besides classics like crepes and sausages, you'll be able to enjoy Tuscan specialties, juicy burgers and roasted almonds and apples. The heart of it all is the 'Glühwein Lounge' that provides cosy refuge from the chill. Kids will be delighted to discover the ice-skating rink and historic carousel.
Due to ongoing health restrictions, it is currently unclear what form Hamburg's Christmas markets will take in 2020. For now, please consider the above a preview of what's to come in 2021.
