Hamburg’s city centre is dotted with Christmas markets, the largest of which is located on Rathausmarkt Square. Against the mesmerising backdrop of historic City Hall, abundantly decorated stalls sell handmade toys, glassware, jewellery and a large variety of international delicacies. What’s more: Santa Claus regularly makes his appearance, hovering above the market in his sleigh.
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.
