A market in or in front of Hamburg's Cathedral (German: Hamburger Dom) was first recorded in 1329, at the beginning only in special seasons like Christmas. With the Protestant Reformation in the 16th century, the fair was also held at other times. After the demolition of the cathedral (1804–1807), the market was held on the Gänsemarkt (lit. geese market) in 1804, but kept the name “Dom”. Since 1892, the fair has been held at Heiligengeistfeld (lit. field of the Holy Spirit) and the name was used for all fairs at this location.

Winterdom or Dommarkt (winter fair or cathedral market): 30 days in late autumn
Sommerdom or Hummelfest (summer fair or Hummel market): since 1947: 31 days during summer
Frühlingsdom (spring fair): since 1948, 30 days in spring
