Rainbow Day Parade at Hamburger Sommer Dom

The largest funfair in the north, the Hamburger Dom is a true institution in the Hanseatic city. Between colourful booths, delicious treats and fast-paced rides, the Rainbow Day Parade sets a sign for diversity and acceptance. The parade on the Heiligengeistfeld will be led by the samba group Sambahia and a mini-Ferris wheel starting at 7 pm. Meeting point is at 6.30 pm at the Ferris wheel. Those who want to visit the Sommer Dom earlier will be welcomed by the showmen with surprises and discounts. After the parade there will be a get-together with party sounds by DJ Pauli.

2nd of August – 4th of August CSD street fair

For three days during Pride Week, the streets between Jungfernstieg and Ballindamm turn into a queer hotspot. Due to the construction site on Jungfernstieg, the street festival will also take place on Rathausmarkt and Bergstraße this year. You can eat, drink, and stroll with a great view on the Alster.

Additionally, other groups have booths on the premises where they may inform you about their activities. The Pride tent at the corner of Jungfernstieg and Ballindamm is the place to go if you have any questions about the CSD or Hamburg Pride e.V. You can also buy tickets for the Pink Pauli Party there.

3rd of August

CSD Demo

For the 44th time, Hamburgers march the streets, this year with the slogan "5 minutes to 12! You and me against the pressure of the far right.". This year, for the first time, the line-up will take place in Mundsburger Damm. The demonstration will then run along Lange Reihe, Glockengießerwall and end on Mönckebergstraße Intersection Bergstraße. Last year, more than 250,000 people attended the CSD demonstration - this year, too, a common sign of strength and diversity will be set.

Christopher Street Day has its roots in the 1969 Stonewall riots in New York. Gay people resisted a raid on the Stonewall Inn, a gay-owned establishment on Christopher Street. This is seen as the start of LGBT people's active protest against discrimination. Queer people still battle for visibility and equal rights on Christopher Street Day (CSD), which takes place annually.

St. Pauli - The sinful district, known for the Reeperbahn and as a legendary entertainment hot spot. But how has this reputation developed? As a place for undesirable trades and a space for revelry, the Hamburgeer Berg was given the status of "St. Pauli-Vorstadt" in 1830. This laid the foundation for the myth of St. Pauli.
