Small but beautiful: Harburg's town hall square in the south of Hamburg is getting ready for its annual Christmas market.
The Harburg Christmas market in front of the historic and picturesque backdrop of the town hall has long been a Harburg tradition. The small stalls around the large fir tree smell of punch, lard cake and almonds. There is always a nice Christmas souvenir to be found here, and families, friends and colleagues can experience the most wonderful time of the year together.
Christmas sounds and a colorful program
There are Christmas sounds and a contemplative atmosphere at the market for visitors of all ages. The tower brass band, which can be heard every evening from the historic town hall windows, is particularly impressive. At "Harburg sings" and the Christmas concert by the Alexander-von-Humboldt-Gymnasium, Harburg experiences the pre-Christmas season by singing together. Puppeteers tell stories, St. Nicholas fills the children's shoes and a door is opened every day on the Harburg Advent calendar with presents.
Stories from all over the world are told by the "Harburger Märchentanten" and Santa Claus has an open ear for all children during his consultation hours. You can experience a spectacular journey through time with the handicraft programs of the Hamburg Archaeological Museum and on the historic children's carousel, where earlier generations took a ride. It's fairytale-like when Mother Hulda opens the window at the town hall, shakes out her beds and thick snowflakes and gold coins fall out.
The activity huts also offer a varied program, giving artists, craftspeople and associations the opportunity to present their work. The market provides the right fireworks to create the perfect festive atmosphere.
