Composers Quarter

The Hamburg Composers' Quarter is an association of various museums that offer exciting and interactive insights into the biographies of world-famous composers.

The cultural metropolis of Hamburg looks back on a far-reaching and unique music history. Important composers have seen the light of day or spent part of their lives in the port city and contributed to the diversity of the Hanseatic musical landscape with their work. The composers' quarter in the historically reconstructed Hamburg Bürger- und Kaufmannshäuser in Neustadt is a unique place that brings the musical history of the Hanseatic city back to life.

Since 1971, music lovers have been able to follow in the footsteps of Johannes Brahms in the quarter's first museum. In 2011, the world's only Telemann Museum was added, dedicated to the work of the respected composer and former music director. The Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach Museum and the Johann Adolf Hasse Museum also opened in March 2015. Further exhibition spaces dealing with the life and work of Fanny and Felix Mendelssohn and Gustav Mahler were added in May 2018.
