Music – Made in Hamburg

Hamburg’s rich music scene suits every ear

Immerse yourself in music: Hamburg's music history goes back to the 17th century, and the city’s rich and varied music scene continues to attract international attention. This city of music is home to artists of all genres who compose, perform, and inspire with their work. With four professional orchestras, renowned soloists and ensembles, and with jazz, hip-hop, rock and pop as well as composers, singer-songwriters and electronic music artists, Hamburg offers an unparalleled urban music mix. The city where the Beatles made their breakthrough, where stars such as Udo Lindenberg, Ace Tee and Beginner are at home, arguably offers the most vibrant music scene in Northern Europe. In Hamburg, music is not simply enjoyed, but also created – thanks to various renowned music schools, studios, and labels. Hamburg’s music landscape is shaped by 300 organs to be discovered across the city, just as much as by the Elbphilharmonie, a beacon of Hamburg’s unique music landscape.
