    C - Hamburger Kunsthalle

    Hamburger Kunsthalle considers itself to be a service for residents and guests of the city. The exhibitions are accompanied by discussions, lectures from prominent artists and talks. The Kunsthalle has a somewhat inspiring meandering feel owing to the three linked buildings dating from 1869, 1919 and 1997. Hamburger Kunsthalle is one of the most important art museums in Germany.

    D - Thalia Theater

    The focus is clearly on definitive works by new directors, the continuous co-operation with young and important dramatists. Confidence in the power of a strong and vibrant company and a sharp focus in its programme on social relationships and dysfunctional societies make this theatre truly cutting-edge.

    E - Hamburg State Opera

    Great art makes Hamburg State Opera a first-rate cultural event. The State Opera harks back to "The establishment of the first public opera house in Germany on 2 January 1678". The "Hamburger Stadttheater" was built on Dammtorstrasse on 1827 and redesigned by Martin Haller in 1873-1877. It was destroyed in 1943 by air-raids and rebuilt in its current design by Gerhard Weber in 1953-1955.
