The Deutsches Schauspielhaus in Hamburg was established in 1900 on the initiative of Hamburg citizens with the aim of presenting new and exciting straight theatre in the Hanseatic City.

Germany's largest straight theatre is a proud, controversial institution that still continues to grow, in spite of political quarrels and the frequently changing artistic directors. If it has any trademark at all, then it is for always causing unrest.

There is at least one première every month – not only in the Main Stage with its magnificent neo-baroque auditorium or in the paint shop, in the foyer, in the cafeteria or in other unconventional venues around the city, for example the trendy Hamburger Botschaft club.

The new Junges Schauspielhaus has also had great success in establishing performing arts for children and young people within the Deutsches Schauspielhaus in Hamburg since the 2005/2006 season.
