With our variety of boutiques, shops and galleries open late for unique and hand-crafted gift shopping, you’re sure to find something perfect for that special someone.

Late Night Trading Hahndorf

This late-night trading will also be taking place on Thursday 7 December, Thursday 14 December and Thursday 21 December when many traders will be open until 7pm! By making the most of these extra hours, you'll be supporting local business owners with incredible, unique wares. These are local farmers, craftsmen, artists, leathersmiths, candle makers, soap makers, jewellers, chocolatiers, winemakers and more, all with products made locally and sold on a small scale. It's the best way to give back to the community! 

Our award-winning and famous restaurants and cafes will delight in offering delicious meals, and cellar doors open to add to the merriment, and a program of entertainment for the whole family – there’s no place you’d rather be from 15-17 December.

While you’re in town, be sure to check out the popular Hahndorf Christkindlmarkt, which was recently named the Southern Hemisphere’s best Christmas market by Jetstar. With a variety of market stalls, performances by local talent, food and drinks, all surrounded by the glow of Christmas lights – you’ll feel the love and community of the Christmas spirit. 

Make sure you also explore the artisan markets at the Hahndorf Academy, as well as the Christmas Bazaar Markets at St Michael’s Lutheran Church.

Did you see last year’s Christmas tree? Be prepared for something even bigger and better this time around.
