152th Derby-Meeting

Gallop races with history: in Hamburg since 1869

In 2021, the German Derby will take place at the Horner Rennbahn in Hamburg. For one week, the big derby meeting will be all about fast horses, exciting bets and extravagant hats.

The IDEE Derby-Meeting is among Hamburg’s cult events. In a spot where people are usually found strolling and enjoying nature or simply taking a break, the world now revolves around the racetrack with its galloping horses, bets and great excitement. The IDEE Derby-Meeting is a large and highly attractive meeting point for Hamburg natives and international guests alike.

The climax, as every year, is the IDEE Derby-Meeting that will be held on Sunday on the traditional racetrack and endowed with prize monies of € 650,000. On this day, the successor of “Weltstar” - last year’s winner - will be found. The focal point of the IDEE Derby-Meeting is the sport with up to 12 races each day; in addition, however, Hamburg-Horn’s legendary track is also an attractive meeting place for families and horse lovers. The inner area of the area contains a large marketplace and ‘kinderland’ where all the kids can enjoy themselves. Those who want to experience a different kind of derby flair should not miss the ‘horse breakfast’.
