The Jungfernstieg is one of the flagships of the Hanseatic city. In summer, the banks of the Binnenalster are transformed into a cultural meeting place. For four days the association "Lebendiger Jungfernstieg e.V." offers a varied programme. The music festival attracts visitors from near and far. Admission is free, and even in bad weather, the event does not fall through. Should it rain or thunderstorm, the music festival moves to the main churches of Katharinen and St. Petri.
