    Kampnagel is Germany’s largest production and performance facility for national and international freelance artists and is one of the most significant stages for the performing arts.

    It offers a wide range of different productions to audiences, from international guest performances, the international summer festival and the emphasis on certain topics, to productions by freelance theatre groups in Hamburg and supporting new artists.

    It presents a spectrum of aesthetic standpoints and ground-breaking tendencies not only in theatre, dance and performance, but also in music, the fine arts and architecture. In 1984, after the Deutsches Schauspielhaus and freelance theatre groups had left the venue, Kampnagel was converted into a multifunctional theatre complex. With its six stages, the cinema, rehearsal space and the restaurant, Kampnagel attracts tens of thousands of visitors every season.
