Rainy Hamburg

What to do when it rains

We admit: It does rain in Hamburg! But the locals know what to do even then. The weather is much better than its reputation, but there are still enough rainy days here. The next time you visit Hamburg and rain clouds come nearer and nearer, you can look forward to a whole lot of exciting and relaxing activities that will do you a lot of good - especially when it's rainy. Warm up during a visit to Hamburg's thermal and steam baths, experience action despite the rain in the JUMP House Hamburg or let yourself be carried off into a magical world by one of Hamburg's Disney Musicals. Hamburg by rain - absolutely no reason to hide under the covers!
