The Derby Meeting: Horses, bets, hats, lifestyle

The IDEE Derby Meeting is among Hamburg’s cult events. From June 29 to July 7, 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 150th Deutsches Derby that will be held on Sunday (July 7) 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’ on July 4.
