For the 29. (!) time the city of Hamburg invites children to its chrismassy bakery sessions in great atmosphere. The re-functioned, gorgiously decorated Alster vessels are now part of Hamburg’s christmas market tradition. For me they will be a real alternative this year to the baking session at home, which I usually only manage with a significant stress factor since my evenings as a full-time employed mom are especially packed during the chrismas season.
Children aged 3+ are welcome to join and ideally should be left alone, although paretns are invited to wach from the side. The small aprentices are taken care of by professional bakers, who help them cut the dough and show them how to decorate them beautifully. If your children are a little older and dare to stay alone, parents can have a cup of tea or coffee at the caf´-vessel next doors.
Tickets need to be bought in the fairy tale vessels’ office (closed between 1:00 and 2:00 pm) and most of the 2 EUR are spend for projects dedicaed to children.
Before or after: a short walk over the christmas market in fornt of the Alsterhaus which is especially beautiful because its motto is “white allover”. So lets hope for some snow. At 4:00, 6:00 and 8:00 pm Santa Claus is flying over the historical christmas market in front of the town hall!
