Christmas Market Jungfernstieg (Alster): Winter Magic!
The downtown of Hamburg shows an enormous number of Christmas markets. The magic of winter at the Jungfernstieg can not be overlooked if you are staying near the Alster.
Christmas Market near the "Alster": Classiness in perfect location
Between the Alster lake and the "Rathaus" (Town Hall) Christmas Market is this beautiful market - a stone's throw from the shopping mall "Europapassage". The Christmaas Market is easy to reach of by either the S1 or S3 (Jungfernstieg stop) or the U-Bahn lines U1 and U2 (also Jungfernstieg stop).
A Christmas market on the Hamburg Jungfernstieg - how could it be otherwise than that this turned out a bit elitist? The Jungfernstieg is a highly traditional spot in this city of merchants: Gifts galore and often very fine indeed and rarely cheap. On the other hand, you can eat and drink very well with an acceptable price-performance level, while you are illuminated by heating mantles. However, seatings are rare. Though the "Alex" in the Alster Pavilion, which is located about halfway up the Christmas market is well provided with seating-accomodations.
Christmas market Jungfernstieg: The "white one"
White is the dominant color (although it is common knowledge white is no color ok ok). Lots of lights, the architecture of the hotels and malls around and fancy boutiques dominate the picture in the direct vicinity of the Christmas Market at Jungfernstieg.
Especially the booths and tents of this market are made great and the displays are also noble - the market is framed by a beautiful environment. Solely on account of the outlook on the Alster and the Christmas tree on this kind of lake you should definitely make a trip here!
