In Hamburg there is a reason why the german word for contemplative – „besinnlich“ – contains the „sin“…

Everybody loves Christmas markets – the Reeperbahn, Hamburg’s mile of sin has created a more salacious version – SANTA PAULI. It’s all there, christmas trees, mulled wine, the little booth where u buy things for your loved ones … but as well live music, strip shows live on stage and little things for the ones you love to love.

The drinks on the Winterdeck are called „Bordsteinschwalbe“ (Hamburg slang for prostitute) or „Nussknacker“ (nutcracker) but you can even create your own mulled wine in Santas mulled wine pharmacy.

SANTA PAULI starts every year in the end of november till the end of december, free entrance.

Opening Hours

Monday – Wednesday: 16:00 – 23:00
Thursday: 16:00 – 00:00
Friday: 16:00 – 01:00
Saturday: 13:00 – 01:00
Sunday: 13:00 – 23:00

According to Google, since we violated their quality guidelines with our Christmas market (adult entertainment, sexually suggestive or explicit content), we not only lost all our nice 5 star ratings at the beginning of 2019, but also can’t be found via Google Maps.

If you can't make it to SANTA PAULI this year, SANTA's online store will bring the market to your living room.

When you troll to the XXXmas market you cannot pass the mulled wine pharmacy without creating your own composition of that hot delicacy. Foundation are rich white (Riesling) and red (Dornfelder) wines from the region Pfalz.

Glittery, pink and with hand-rubbed unicorn tail extract - that's our unicorn mulled wine! Only on Mondays and only in Santa's mulled wine pharmacy.
