Hamburg for Night Owls

Explore Hamburg by night!

Attention night owls and party friends! We show you the best places in Hamburg for your nighttime forays. From the best clubs, pubs and bars to the charm of the harbour after dark - and the most beautiful photo motifs in the illuminated city nightscape. As soon as the sun sets, Hamburg shines in a completely different light. In particular, its numerous canals reflect the light and create a very special atmosphere. Some sights are also open after dark or even around the clock, offering a completely new experience.
