Christmas MarketsBringing the year to a close, visitors can follow the Christmas star to Hamburg for an experience to remember.
The twelve Christmas markets held in the city from the end of November to late December offer a choice of historical, maritime, traditional and even risqué themes, with something to appeal to everyone. The "Santa Pauli" market, Hamburg's erotic take on the Christmas market, is held along the Reeperbahn in Germany's most famous red-light district. Instead of a traditional Father Christmas with a bushy white beard, visitors will be met by raunchy angels and voluptuous pixies.
Some of Hamburg's Christmas markets are even open until New Year's Eve.
