Hamburg's famous Weihnachtsmärkte (Christmas Market) with holiday handicrafts and food stands start in late November and feature parades the last four Saturdays before Christmas down Mönckebergstraße towards Jungfernstieg from the main train station. Santa Pauli, an X-rated market around the Reeperbahn, calls itself "the horniest Christmas market." More traditional markets are held at city hall and along Mönckebergstraße towards Jungfernstieg.
