The Gay Christmas markets in Germany 2016

This year, the gay-lesbian Christmas market Christmas Avenue will take place for the fifth time on the Schaffenstrasse in Cologne. The Christmas Avenue is the largest pink Christmas market in Germany and well known in the area. Not just the original shows or the not everyday salesstands. This year it will be even more colorful on Christmas Avenue! We test your knowledge, your stamina and your skill with 'The Avenue Arena'. Everyone from 18 years can participate and with a bit of luck can win a breathtaking cruise for two persons.(In German only)

For the 11th time this year the gay-lesbian Christmas market Pink Christmas will take place on the Stephansplatz in Munich. What started as a weekend event in 2005 has become a very lively focus in the Munich Adventszeit: The smallest Christmas market in the city is now one of the most famous. Not only the original shows or the not-everyday salesstands contribute to this. The audience is based on a mixture of lesbians, gays, local residents, guests and the party-minded, who have discovered the neighborhood not only on the weekends.

Pink Christmas is also in Frankfurt am Main, on Friedrich-Stoltze-Platz. With 15 stands and a stage, visitors can enjoy the cozy Christmas atmosphere at home.

Hamburg has the WinterPride, in the heart of St. Georg. With mulled wine, punch and treats, we will celebrate with you the best time of the year on Hamburg's only lesbian-gay Christmas market and on the weekend a full stage program.

As Christmas markets in Germany are known, now also Rosa Christmas markets exist today also many years.
