Hamburg in Summertime

Outdoor recreational activities.

Our Tips & Recommendations

Summer in Hamburg positively resounds with loud events, festivals and street fests such as the Harbour Birthday, the MS Dockville Festival, Christopher Street Day and so much more. On the warmest days, it's easy to enjoy the harbour, HafenCity and the Elbe with a cold drink in one hand. Thanks to the light breeze, however, it's always nice in the Hanseatic City. These provide the best conditions for relaxed days and long evenings under the open sky. Culinarily, you'll definitely get your money's worth in the numerous ice cream parlours and bars. Hamburg is only grey?!? No way! Summer is the best time of year in Hamburg. (But in case the weather changes: Rainy Hamburg)
