Located just south of the green lung of Hamburg - the city park - it represents the 'civil part' of the Hamburg markets.
Goldbekmarkt: Nice situated & child-friendly
Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday some 120 retail outlets are offering their fresh produce from around from 8 am to 1 pm. Visitors who make their way there, do not only experience a wealth of offerings that makes it hard to decide, but also can enjoy a beautiful walk right next to the Goldbekkanal (part of the Alster).
Wide range of high-level
Whether vegetables from the "altes Land", delicious pastas, fragrant spices from the Orient, cut flowers for the balcony - the Goldbekmarkt offers everything a 'market-heart' desires.
With so many different retailers, it's worth to browse first in peace on the market and compare the offers. Even if the prices are quite human, you will notices at one point or another, that you are in the trendy and upmarket district of Hamburg: "Winterhude".
Therefore, sometimes not only a look at all the delicacies and handicraft goods makes sense, but also to other visitors. Many local celebrities are strolling around there and the nearby Muehlenkamp with all its cafes and chic boutiques. A detour to Mühlenkamp is worthwhile not only because of the beautiful ambiance, but also in order to seek a "quiet village". Unfortunately, you will not find a good place for a rest an the market itself.
Goldbekmarkt - Infrastructure
The Goldbekmarkt is amply provided for a physical well-being. Coffee and cake, snacks, champagne or beer - nobody has to starve here. Especially not when trying all snacks and appetizers offered at the various stalls. For sufficiently small break in between, standing and seating is available.
However, at the peak hours of this market in Hamburg, between 10 am to noon, it can be difficult to get a quiet place there. Generally, care must be taken not to make the shopping bags to packed, since it could get tight because of the high visitor numbers and the narrow nature of the Goldbekstraße.
The same applies for the journey by car. In the immediate surroundings there are only minor side streets that offer little parking space. To find a parking space there on market days is pretty hard. Parking garages or larger parking is not available (unless you head into the car park of the EDEKA market, which is located on the Mühlenkamp). It is therefore advisable to travel by bus and train. The buses of line 6 and 25 hold both directly at the market. The best way to catch a bus of the line 6 (25) is from the subway stop "Borgweg" ("Sierichstraße").
Particularly noteworthy is also the big playground at the very beginning of the Goldbekstraße. Here the kids can play to their heart's content and play while the adults stroll through the market. And who wants to enjoy a delicious lunch on the canal at a fair price, can for example visit the "Bootsmann", a restaurant directly opposite the Goldbekmarket.
