The historic center of the Hanseatic city Stralsund, which is listed as UNESCO world heritage, offers a special atmosphere during the Advent season. With 3 Christmas markets in the heart of the
city we would like to get you in the mood for the contemplative festive days.
The famous town hall cellar, one of the biggest vaulted cellars in the Baltic region, is the highlight of our Christmas market. Artists, craftspeople and retailers offer high-class Christmas presents and accessory full of atmosphere.
The familiar Christmas market with skating rink, children’s carousel and the "Kontor" where you can find regional products like marmelades, beer, handcrafts...
With the town hall in range of sight, the Alter Markt is the right address for families and everyone, who likes things a little more cozy and contemplative.
Our skating rink, with a size of 400 square meters and decorated with a luminous Christmas star of 6 meters height, will provide a lot of icy fun for everyone.
School classes and day-care centers can use the skating rink on weekdays from 11:00 to 14:00 free of charge after prior notice.

Town Hall Cellar
Unique atmosphere with more than 40 retailers and craftspeople in the gothic vaulted cellars.
The biggest vaulted cellar in the Baltic region offers space for more than 40 artists, craftspeople and retailers on circa 1500 square meters. Here one finds individual and passionately manufactured Christmas presents and accessories to give pleasure to our dear ones.
Also the youngest citizens of Stralsund are involved in the Christmas market preparations. In the town hall cellar, kids of the local primary schools and kindergartens decorated the Christmas trees with self-made ornaments. Fairy storytelling, consultation hours with Santa Clause, many crafting and join-in actions as well as a Christmassy program on stage with live music, also invite to linger in our cozy town hall cellar with its unique atmosphere.
In the part of the vaulted cellar designed for kids, they can follow the stories of the wool-fairy on the spinning wheel, fairy story telling of our fairy story grandma or the advent stories of Santa Claus’ wife.
Every Tuesday and Thursday, the Stralsunder Bürgerpaten offer a Christmas handicraft action from 15:00 to 17:00 o’clock.
