Disneys THE LION KING in Hamburg

When the curtain rises and the mysterious rhythms of Africa sound, the colourful animal world and magic of the Serengeti are as cloase as Hamburg on the Elbe. Disneys DER KÖNIG DER LÖWEN takes you to the savannah of Africa!

A musical you won't forget.

For many Hamburg visitors, Disney's fascinating musical adventure, Disneys DER KÖNIG DER LÖWEN, begins with the trip from the Landungsbrücken to the Theater im Hafen on the other side of the Elbe. The mixture of authentic sounds, fantastic costumes and the emotional songs of Elton John and Tim Rice make the atmosphere of the Serengeti tangible as the young lion Simba is finding his way in the savannah and taking his place as king.
