Altona Christmas Market
Located at the exit of the Rail Station Altona (Ottenser Hauptstraße).
Multi-cultural Christmas market in Ottensen (Altona)
Two things give the Christmas market in Ottensen/Altona (a district of Hamburg), its special face. On the one hand, this Christmas market is very nicely decorated. On the other hand this market in Ottensen is not only showing the typical powdered sugar-like plush atmosphere well-known from other Christmas markets. The Christmas market in Altona / Ottensen shows a certain international flair.
What to find here
The red cabins offer besides small gifts such as wooden toys, Christmas decorations, candles and of course mulled wine and sugar cookies. Families can enjoy a trip there in particular, because the Altona Christmas market relies heavily on family and children (visits of St Nichola, participatory theater).
The infrastructure of the market is very good 'cause the Christmas market in Ottensen is situated directly in front of the rail station Altona and the shopping center "Mercado". There you can not only warm up if necessary. You also find good food here, toilets and other pretty useful facilities.
