Culture & Music in Hamburg

Theatre, Galleries, Music – The highest level of cultural enjoyment

Numerous theatres, museums and galleries as well as the Hamburg State Opera and a colourful club scene make Hamburg a pure cultural delight. Especially recommended are the Hamburger Kunsthalle and the Elbphilharmonie, whose Grand Hall is one of the most impressive acoustic masterpieces in the world. Hamburg is also the third largest musical metropolis in the world after New York and London. A classic is Disneys DER KÖNIG DER LÖWEN.  All in all, Hamburg has a lot to offer. Now it's up to you - when are you going to watch it?
