At the 17th Hamburg Theatre Night, theatre enthusiasts can get an insight into the current productions of all Hamburg theatres. Last year more than 10,000 interested visitors took advantage of this opportunity.
Hamburg cultural diversity in one night! It may sound like work, but it is the finest leisure time stress. In one night in September, almost 40 large and small theatres in Hamburg have been showing excerpts from their current and upcoming plays for more than 15 years.
The sneak preview of the Hamburg theatre scene
What the sneak preview is for movie theaters and blockbusters, the night of theater is for Hamburg's cultural landscape. Because here you can get a taste of all the new season's plays with just one ticket. From the big houses to the small stages of the city, there is something for everyone. The supporting programme is almost the same. Because in addition to the performances there is much more on offer.
Visitors can expect a colourful programme in which Hamburg's 40 or so theatres demonstrate their diversity. Whether classical or modern, musical or spoken theatre, Low German or English – there is something for every taste. Visitors can put together their own individual programme and enjoy the unique atmosphere of the cultural spectacle. Younger theatre fans are also catered for with a special programme for children. And when accompanied by an adult ticket holder, children up to the age of 14 have free admission.
The whole theatre night on the road with public transport
By bus – the Hamburger Hochbahn is setting up six special lines with more than 50 buses connecting the theatres – and also by S- & U-Bahn and all the regular buses of the HVV (Hamburg public transport system), visitors to the Hamburg Theatre Night can visit the stages from Allee Theater to St. Pauli Theater, from Winterhuder Fährhaus to Deutsches Schauspielhaus, from Steife Brise to the Hamburg State Opera. The large and small stages of the Hanseatic city show the dynamics of Hamburg's theatre scene in one evening.
The ticket is valid as a ticket to all participating stages, which now offer programmes not only in the theatre hall, but also in the foyers, corridors, bars and even outside the door.
