Christmas Gänsemarkt Christmas Market

Warm your hands by the fire and try some Feuerzangenbowle at this cosy, atmospheric market at Gänsemarkt.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Hanseatic Christmas Market Gaensemarkt

Gänsemarkt Christmas Market

Cosy Gänsemarkt Square is a lovely place to warm your hands on a cold winter's day. For instance on a cup of Feuerzangenbowle: this traditional Christmas drink is made by lighting a rum-soaked sugarloaf on fire and letting it drip into mulled wine. The beloved Christmas market at Gänsemarkt tends to get crowded later in the evening — but who minds a bit of extra warmth? In true Christmas spirit, part of the revenue is donated to a good cause.

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.
