In Short

A Wide Selection on the Huge Dom

We were on a Tuesday afternoon at the Dom in Hamburg and have visited our favorite stands. At the Dom, there are incredibly many stalls with a huge choice of the most diverse dishes.

Here’s a list of goodies you can find there:


  • Bratwurst
  • French fries
  • Chips
  • Pickles
  • Burgundy ham in a roll
  • Steak
  • Pizza
  • Corn on the cob
  • Baguette with various toppings (raclette cheese, garlic, bruschetta and many more)
  • Lángos
  • Asian dishes
  • Fish roll
  • Smoked salmon


  • Popcorn
  • Lard cake
  • Poffertjes
  • Crêpes
  • Churros
  • Gingerbread hearts
  • Roasted almonds
  • Chocolate fruits
  • Candied fruits
  • Filled doughnuts
  • Frozen yogurt
  • Cotton candy
  • Candy apple
  • Soft ice cream

As you can see, it is a true paradise for all foodies and this list does not even include everything. We also felt very comfortable there. We arrived at 3:30 p.m. and walked around first to get an overview of the food selection. The decision was particularly difficult for us with all the delicacies. In the end, there was one savory and one sweet dish for each of us.


But first it had to be my all-time-favorite: a Lángos with sour cream, cheese and ham. I love it! At the Dom, there is only one stand offering the delicious Czech specialty. The fried dough is anything but healthy, but we do not think that matters at a fair like that. The Lángos are freshly prepared and topped as you choose. At 7 €, this dish was actually the most expensive for us that day.

Tip: If you do not feel comfortable in crowds, it is best to go to the Dom as early as possible. The fair opens its doors at 3 p.m. and then has a manageable number of visitors.


After a few more steps, we saw one of my favorite desserts: the classic crêpes. The Dom in Hamburg is definitely not lacking in crêpes stands and with this agony of choice, we chose a well-attended stand. I ended up choosing a crêpes with a Kinderriegel. This is an absolute dream for Kinder chocolate lovers and chocolate fans in general. I have to say that the batter itself wasn’t as good as I am used to from other stands. Nevertheless, it was a delicious dessert to go with my Lángos and at 4 €, it was actually also the cheapest dish for us that day.

Raclette Cheese Baguette

Adrian has chosen a baguette with raclette cheese and garlic sauce as a savory dish this afternoon. And now all you cheese lovers need to prick up your ears. The raclette cheese is heated up in one piece with a lamp so that the top layer melts. When the cheese starts to bubble and gets some roasting flavors, it is put on a toasted baguette half and is then served with sauces as desired. There are, of course, a few stands at the Dom for the classic topped baguettes, but we only discovered the raclette cheese option at this one stand. If you love cheese, this is a great recommendation – we found it super tasty. The baguette was 6 € including garlic sauce.


We just love the Dom, because you can order many “small” dishes and try your way through many stalls. That is what we did on this day and therefore had some delicious churros at the end. There are actually a few stands for that too but we have a recommendation for you: Jacko’s Churros. We liked the churros here very much. You can choose between different sauces and if you want the churros pure, with cinnamon & sugar or just breaded with sugar. The staff is very friendly and you can watch the frying process.
You can watch a video about it on our TikTok channel! Without sauce, the Mexican dessert at Jacko’s Churros costs 5 €. For an extra 1 €, you can get melted Kinderriegel, chocolate sauce, strawberry sauce, vanilla sauce and many more.

Our conclusion about the Dom in Hamburg

Of course, as at any fair, you cannot expect the healthiest dishes and probably not the best quality. But such events do not have this claim at all. It is all about having fun and indulging in the occasional unhealthy treat. We can only warmly recommend a visit to the Dom in Hamburg and will definitely come again!
