The largest and most popular is located in the square outside Hamburg's impressive town hall, boasting the motto "art instead of commerce." It is operated by Roncalli's Circus, with the traditional mulled wine (glühwein) served by clowns and circus artists. The market boasts a range of products from all over Germany, included gingerbread from Nuremberg and pottery from the Lausitz region.
