The "Theater im Hafen" is home to the successful musical Disneys THE LION KING and offers unique musical enjoyment in the breath-taking setting of Hamburg port.

Even the route to the "Theater im Hafen" is a special experience: Visitors to the musical "Disneys THE LION KING" are transported across the Elbe to the venue on special ferries from the jetties before they can immerse themselves in the magical world of the musical. In addition to the maritime atmosphere and the impressive music and dance performance of the musical troupe, the theatre also offers an art collection with more than 50 exhibits from North German and international artists. The theatre also houses the exclusively equipped Skyline restaurant in which visitors to the musical can treat themselves to some culinary delights whilst they enjoy the wonderful view of Hamburg's panorama.
