Hamburger Dom, Hamburg

Hamburger Dom, Hamburg (must see)

The Hamburger Dom is a funfair staged at Heiligengeistfeld, a public space in the St. Pauli quarter. It holds three seasonal fairs in spring, summer and winter each year. With approximately ten million visitors each year, it is one of Germany’s biggest and longest running Volksfests, or people’s fairs. The fair’s name translates as ‘Hamburg Cathedral’, a reference to the fair’s medieval origins. It is believed to have begun in the 12th century as a seasonal market held outside the city’s now demolished cathedral. The funfair has been held at its current location – Heiligengeistfeld, or field of the Holy Spirit, since 1892.

The three seasonal fairs are as follows: Winterdom, the winter fair, is the oldest of the three, and usually takes place for 30 days in November. Sommerdom began in 1947 and lasts throughout August. Fruhlingsdom, the spring fair, takes place each April. The fair, whose entrance can be found opposite St. Pauli U-Bahn station, is a highlight for locals and tourists alike. This could be on account of its many rollercoasters and fairground attractions, or the varied home made food stalls – or it could be that, with dinner available for 10 Euros, it is one of the best value nights out in the city.
