Wonderful, impressive the green color of the roof, picturesque with the Christmas market. Very lively at nightfall. At the back there is a square with a fountain, accessible from the side streets to the building. It deserves a visit!

The market here has a variety of foods, drinks and artisan goods. If you only have time for 1 market come here. During December at 6 pm they have Santa Claus fly in with his sleigh overhead. It is a wonderful experience.

One of the best Xmas Market that I have visited in Europe! The atmosphere, people, wine and Santa! Local producers are everywhere and the taste of everything is fantastic!

The Rathaus Weinachten Markt is the biggest of a number of markets nearby, its at its busiest at night (especially around the Gluwein Stalls) but still is quieter and more enjoyable than other Christmas Markets (Think Edinburgh!). Wide variety of food and drink.

Lovely Christmas market in the centre of Hamburg, not terribly big but there are 3 other markets within 5-10 min walk too. Has all your standard stalls and gluhwein to enjoy

This is maybe the biggest and best Christmas market I town, according to me. The only minus with this is the huge amount of people (but you can’t really get around that). Here the stands are lots and various, the people are nice and they’re...More

In our view the best Christmas Market and their are lots in Hamburg. The flying Santa on his sled on the zip wire, the huge lit up light tree, gingerbread house, the food, the stalls and of course the Gluvein makes this a magic experience.

The Rathausmarkt offers you a gamut of shopping and eating options. An evening stroll in the City Hall area offers you a chance to look at Hamburg's day to day life up and close.

I only know about the wine village in the summer, the Gourmet week in late dinner and the Christmas market from beginning of December to Christmas taking place on the Rathaus Markt itself

The Christmas markets don't normally open until the first week of Advent, so I'm afraid your visit of Nov 25th is just a little too early. The cabins will all be in place but they'll be setting up, not trading until 27th... More
