Around 150 craftspeople from Germany, Scandinavia, the Baltic, Israel and Peru will present their most beautiful works in the Gothic church, with 100 tiny huts in the nave and the Mediaeval vaulted cellar, with demonstrations of the diversity of old and new craft techniques.

Regardless of whether you're looking for exquisite gifts, would like to enjoy a heavenly Christmas atmosphere or just want to have a look at the little huts, which were still used as dwellings up to 30 years ago – this is the place to start getting in the mood for Christmas. The aroma of delicious waffles also fills the air from the vaulted cellar to the gallery, where beautiful music is performed several times a day. Lübeck group “Deutscher Verband Frau und Kultur e.V.” organises this unique Christmas market on a voluntary basis and donates the net profit to charitable causes in the Hanseatic city.Hospital of the Holy Spirit at Koberg
