Where to watch fireworks

at the HARBOUR BIRTHDAY HAMBURG

Our favourite places to watch the big AIDA fireworks!

A special highlight of the HARBOUR BIRTHDAY HAMBURG each year are the big AIDA Fireworks, which is especially breathtaking close to the Elbe river. 

If you want to enjoy a good view of the big AIDA fireworks during the HARBOUR BIRTHDAY HAMBURG, you should not be late. There are many great places around the harbour and the Elbe, but there are few visitors that would want to miss the spectacular fireworks on Saturday evening. Alternatively you can watch the colourful spectacle from the water side.

For those who prefer it a little quieter, the fish market or the river Elbe is the right place. Directly at the water you have the best view of the colourful spectacle and the reflections in the dazzling water surface.
