Christmas market Hamburg

| Christmas market in Hamburg

The Ottensen Christmas Market, nestled in the urban charm of the eponymous district of Hamburg in the Altona region, is an annual highlight that captivates visitors during the Advent season until December 23. This festive event has established itself as one of Hamburg's most authentic Christmas markets. With more than 50 lovingly decorated huts, the market offers a diversity that is well-known beyond the borders of Ottensen..

Located in an area renowned for its vibrant culture and community, the Christmas market unfolds along a route that blends historical and modern elements. From Altona Station, past the popular Mercado shopping center, to Spritzenplatz, this venue provides the perfect backdrop for pre-Christmas joy and contemplation.

Visitors can look forward to a remarkable setting where the stalls stretch between significant buildings, creating an atmosphere that is both historical and festive. The market itself is a kaleidoscope of colors and lights, with decorated fir trees and sparkling Christmas stars that cast a celebratory glow over the quarter.

The market's specialties are manifold: from homemade nougat and marzipan to handcrafted ceramics and kaleidoscopes. Guests can discover extraordinary gifts such as glowing stars and plantable calendars made from seed paper.

Culinary-wise, the market reflects Ottensen's versatility and openness: traditional delicacies like Holsteiner kale with small potatoes are served alongside vegan dishes, while classics like lard pastries sit next to Syrian falafel and mezze. The culinary journey ranges from hearty regional specialties to international delicacies.

The organizer of the Christmas market in Ottensen is the bergmanngruppe in Hamburg. The bergmanngruppe is an event agency that has been in existence for 35 years and specializes in the conception and execution of public and corporate events. In addition to the Christmas market in Ottensen, the company also organizes other Christmas markets in Hamburg.

Access to the market is straightforward: it is within walking distance from Altona Station, making it a welcome spot for visitors seeking festive cheer after a day of shopping and strolling through the city.

In conclusion, the Ottensen Christmas Market is more than just a place for buying Christmas gifts. It is a social hub that brings people together and a cultural experience that reflects the diversity and warmth of Ottensen's heart. A visit here is not just a feast for the senses but also an immersion into the community and the cultural heart of Hamburg.

The Christmas market takes place annually, and therefore for the twenty-fifth time previsibly in December 2024 in Hamburg.
