Christmas markets in Hamburg

Christmas markets in Hamburg

Hamburg is Christmas country – all over the city centre. On the most beautiful square, Rathausmarkt, before the historic town hall stand the sugar bakers’, toy makers’ and craftsmen’s stalls, lovingly made by Zirkus Roncalli. Hamburg’s Weihnachstmarkt, situated in the Mönckebergstraße, splendid and expansive with 150 stalls, is also a magnet for visitors to the city. “Santa Pauli – Christmas in Kiez”, is by far the most unusual Christmas market of them all. Here the borders between conventional Christmas tradition and frivolous Kiez life merge. “White magic on the Jungfernsteig” attracts visitors through its Christmas light shows, which end on New Year’s Eve at 2am with resplendent fireworks. If you love peace and quiet you’ve found the right place at the St. Petri church or in and around the Michel – Hamburg’s trademark. International tunes from bands from all over the world and many culinary options are offered on Gänsemarkt. The harbour city goes maritime at the HafenCity Christmas market in the Übersee quarter, “God Jul – Nordic Christmas at the port”, or at the Fleetinsel Weihnachstmarkt. It’s fairytale time on the Binnenalster, where fairytale boats have docked for kids, each with its own programme. The crowning of Christmas Hamburg can be experienced at the Christmas parade, the colourfully lit, cheerful procession of Father Christmases, reindeer, elves and more. Everyone wants in and nobody wants out of the Christmas country that is Hamburg.

There is no doubt that the three buildings belonging to the Hamburg Kunsthalle house one of the most important public art collections in Germany: perhaps the best place to discover connections, developments and trends in seven centuries of art history. The permanent exhibition of more than 700 works and alternating displays from the museum's holdings offer a unique insight into art from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Every one of the museum's collections is important in its own right but in combination they have an immense impact. The museum presents the medieval altars of Master Bertram and Master Francke, 17th century Dutch paintings and 19th century German paintings with extensive groups of works by Caspar David Friedrich, Philipp Otto Runge, Adolph Menzel and Max Liebermann. Works of the Classical Modernist period include paintings and sculptures by Wilhelm Lehmbruck, Edvard Munch, Emil Nolde, Paul Klee, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, Max Beckmann, Lyonel Feininger, George Grosz and Max Ernst. The contemporary art section features alternating exhibitions, which have included Georg Baselitz, Sigmar Polke, Gerhard Richter, Mona Hatoum and Jenny Holzer. The Department of Prints and Drawings comprises more than 120,000 works and is a museum in its own right. The Kunsthalle also runs the 'Museum At Home' initiative where art historians give their expert opinion on paintings (on canvas and wood), drawings and prints for a small fee.

The location of Schmidt's Tivoli (and its nearby sister theatre the Schmidt Theatre) in the St. Pauli district of Hamburg, and specifically on the Reeperbahn, says quite a lot about the theatre itself. Shows at the Tivoli are all about light-hearted entertainment, with a generous helping of offbeat humour. But this is exactly what audiences are after and why they have been flocking to both theatres for more than 30 years now.

The Schmidts Tivoli building's octagonal auditorium is reminiscent of a circus arena and it has a plush, intimate atmosphere – perfect for musicals, comedy and variety. Schmidts Tivoli specialises in German-language musical revues, which are produced entirely inhouse: from the first to the last note, from the initial idea to the final performance.
