City Hall Market
The view of this magical market located outside the City hall under a large illuminated tree will call you from afar. Shop for handmade toys, jewelry and beeswax candles in the stalls and huts decorated with garlands and lights. The savory aroma of roasted almonds and freshly mulled wine warms the cold air and calls you to the food stalls. Look out for Santa who rides his reindeer sleigh across the market.
Jungfernsteig Christmas Market

Fight the cold as you enjoy hot drinks and culinary classics such as Dutch pancakes and German biscuits in the hot food stalls. The beautiful view of the Alster River aboard the old ferris wheel should help you relax after a long day.
Santa Pauli Market
If you are a party lover, this is your market. Located in Hamburg's Red light district is this X-rated Christmas market that is towered over by a giant disco ball and looks like a big open-air night club. Enjoy the loud music from the shows and live music always being played on the stage. Naughty? Then get yourself classic erotic toys from the stalls. Take a break and chill in the lounge room that has a fire place as you sip on some mulled wine or hot punch
