Calendar of Cultural 2023 for the City of Hamburg

Funfair Hamburger Dom hamburg

Der Hamburger Dom / Funfair on 3 kilometers

The DOM is an old Hamburg tradition of fun, games, adventure and nostalgia. The name of this fair, Dom, refers to the cathedral that was destroyed in 1805. Since 1337, merchants were allowed to have fun at the Marien-Dom in bad weather. Today, three times a year, all the fairground attractions worthy of the reputation of Germany's largest fairgrounds can be found there. Naturally, you can also refuel at the many stands offering grilled corn on the cob, roasted almonds and delicious chocolate-covered fruit. Sausages and other German specialities are also on offer.

Boat tour on the Elbe and in the harbour

Landungsbrücke Boat tour Elbe harbour Hamburg

Situated on the Elbe River and 80 kilometres from the North Sea, visiting Hamburg, you should definitely visit what is one of the largest ports in Europe. Numerous boat trips are offered from the Landungsbrück, of various durations. There is a lot to discover from the world's most modern cargo terminal in Altenwerder to the ocean liners, locks and canals of the historic warehouse district.

• There are so many choices, that we don't recommend a particular company. Along the 700 meters of the Landungsbrücke you will find all the landing stages. Ask which languages are offered during the tour.

The Elbe Philharmonic

Philharmonic elbe elbephilharmonie

The 2,100-seat Elbphilharmonie, which was designed on the brick base of a former warehouse by the renowned Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron, now stands like a glass liner with a wave-shaped roof rising up to 110 metres into the sky. The Elbphilharmonie embodies Hamburg's commitment to building on tradition and doing something new. The "Plaza", the central meeting point of the Elbphilharmonie, opens onto a panoramic platform open to the public. The way to the Plaza is already an experience in itself: an 80-metre escalator leads visitors through the building. Once they reach the 37-metre-high "Plaza", they enjoy a breathtaking view of the city and the harbour. An outdoor walk takes visitors around the building.

• Due to the great success, please buy your tickets in advance
• Plaza: Every day from 9am to 12pm - Online ticket purchase

The fish market "Fischmarkt"

Fischmarkt hamburg

The fish market "Fischmarkt" is an institution in Hamburg and has been for 300 years! Here you will find everything from fish, fruit and vegetables, clothes, handicrafts and souvenirs to music and a relaxed atmosphere. Every Sunday early (before going to church), you will find it all around the Fischermarkt, Hamburg's fish market on the banks of the Elbe River.

History: Fishermen and craftsmen have settled at the gates of Hamburg since the 16th century. After the Dane Christian IV became Duke of Holstein in 1640 (with Altona), the Danes tried to rival the Hanseatic city of Hamburg. Thus, since 1703, he was also allowed to trade on the Sunday before church in Altona, and this continues to the present day. Photo: © / Escape Filmproduktion - Große Elbstraße 9
