Hamburg – City of Music

There are a thousand good reasons for embarking on a music-themed trip to Hamburg

From classical and electronic festivals to music history, and from live gigs to club culture, there is plenty to be discovered here. Europe’s first public opera house opened in Hamburg in 1678, and sons of the city and greats of classical music, such as Brahms and Telemann, can be experienced here. The Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, a unique cultural landmark, shines well beyond the city’s boundaries. Hamburg is the gateway to the world of music: it was in the district of St Pauli that, back in the 1960s, the Beatles laid the foundations for their global career. At numerous music festivals in and around Hamburg unique locations and an array of sounds create a one-of-a-kind music experience. Hamburg breathes music, and this can be felt across the city’s countless clubs and pubs around the Reeperbahn, at musicals, concert halls, as well as open-air events.
