Hamburg during summer

Outdoor activities

The summer in Hamburg is better than its reputation precedes it and the sun crazy Hamburgers use this great season more than ever. Thanks to the slight breeze, however, things in the Hanseatic city are always bearable. The best conditions for relaxed days and long evenings in the open air.



Hamburg + summer = the place to be

In Hamburg's summer, much more than just selfie with Elphi:

How about a barbecue evening in the city park, a walk around the Alster or a visit to a flea market in Hamburg? The summer in Hamburg is sweating with events, festivals and street festivals like the Hafengeburtstag Hamburg, the MS Dockville Festival, the CSD and and and. When it gets a little warmer, you can enjoy cool drinks at the harbour, in HafenCity Hamburg and on the Elbe. The numerous ice-cream parlours and bars offer culinary delights for everyone. Summer is also the best time for sport & movement or fun & action in Hamburg. And of course we also tell you our favourite hotspots.

Nothing Grey in grey: Summer in Hamburg is the best time of the year. (But only in case of rain in Hamburg)
