The Montblanc House

An exhibition that brings writing and inspiration to life

Hamburg is not only a fascinating port city, but also the birthplace of the traditional Montblanc company. The Montblanc House tells the story of the company and invites visitors into the world of writing.

The Montblanc House brings the history of writing itself and writing utensils to life, from their origins to the present day. The 3,600 m2 exhibition celebrates the people around the world, who have immortalised themselves through writing and educates visitors on the art of writing.

Inspire Writing - The exhibition

"Inspire Writing" tells the story of Montblanc - from start-up to traditional company. The immersive experience focuses on people who follow their own intuition and inspire the world through their written contributions. The permanent exhibition features over 400 Montblanc writing instruments, including historic fountain pens and their latest products. Original handwritings by writing celebrities such as Frida Kahlo, Ernest Hemingway and Jackie Chan are also on display. You will also get exclusive behind-the-scenes glimpses of the manufacturing process and the creation of the nibs. Experience the inspiration of writing and be inspired to write.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Altona & Ottensen

For strolling, having a coffee, taking a walk or having some delicious food – situated directly at the Elbe and traversed by parks, Altona & Ottensen are considered to be charming and diverse districts with character. Brick walls create a rather rough atmosphere in Altona, while it is lively and colourful in Ottensen.

Hamburg Michel St. Michaelis Church

Hamburg has many large churches - but only one "Michel": On its platform 106 metres high, there is a fabulous (and breezy) view of Hamburg, the port and the surrounding countryside - one that should not be missed!

Journey into absolute darkness Dialouge in the dark

The DIALOG IM DUNKELN (dialogue in the dark) in Hamburg is an important exhibition that captivates with its uniqueness. Visitors are led by blind people through a dark world of scents, sounds and temperatures. An exhibition on discovering the invisible. There is guaranteed nothing to see, but quite a bit to discover...

Bergedorf Castle

Bergdorf Castle, located in Billelauf, is Hamburg's only preserved castle. Nowadays, it houses a museum. In around 1220, Count Albrecht von Orlamünde created a moated castle in the dammed Bille, which fell to the dukes of Saxe-Lauenburg in 1227.
