Adventure, leisure & sports in Hamburg

Boredom? You'll hardly ever hear that word in Hamburg.

No matter whether the sky is bright blue or it's drizzling, Hamburg always offers great recreational activities! Whether you are a sporting ace, artist, water lover or gourmet - there's something for everyone here! If you prefer a classic sport like golf or want to try something new (how about paintball?), Hamburg's range of sports is broad. Numerous workshops and seminars can help get your creative juices flowing, and if you simply want to relax, we recommend Hamburg's wellness offers. Whatever you're looking for, Hamburg's leisure facilities offer the right activity for you! Sports lovers and action fans will almost have too much choice - between various water sports activities on the Alster or fun & action at paintball. There are also no limits to letting loose your creativity: train your vocal chords in one of Hamburg's choirs, become a three-star cook in a cooking course or work on a cool project in one of Hamburg's Co-Working Spaces. There's also something for young Hamburg fans - discover Hamburg's leisure tips for families!
