No matter what type of music you’re into, the Hamburg Metropolitan Region offers something for everyone. And as the days get longer, guests to the city can look forward to a wealth of different festivals. This is where people get together amidst a unique atmosphere that can only be found in Hamburg – whether it is the impressive backdrop of the port, the iconic Elbphilharmonie, or the numerous live clubs around the Reeperbahn. In Hamburg, the festival season is celebrated in many different ways, ranging from arty/experimental to beautifully classical, and from solemn church interiors to open-air events under the starry sky. You can enjoy the hustle and bustle of city life, or head for idyllic landscapes in Hamburg’s surroundings – it is all up to you. One of the highlights of the festival season is the Reeperbahn Festival, Europe's largest club festival – with 500 bands and newcomers from around the world performing at over 90 venues across the St Pauli district, including the legendary live clubs where the Beatles once kicked off their world career.
