Hamburg Germany Events
The Christmas season is always a big topic in Germany, with Hamburg being one of the most popular destinations in the country during the Christmas season.
This year there are a number of festivals, including a boat parade and the harbour birthday, which takes place in early May. German festivals and events are a great opportunity to immerse yourself in the fun-loving part of the country. From hikes through the Black Forest to clubbing in Berlin to medieval castles and palaces for the love of nudist beaches and holiday resorts - Germany has something for everyone.
At the end of May, the St. Georg Town Festival invites you to the Lange Reihe street festival. The city of ScheeAel near Hamburg welcomes visitors with the Hurricane Festival at the end of the month.
On this holiday, the streets of the city are always full of Christmas lights, Christmas trees and Christmas ornaments. Christmas parades come together and create a magical atmosphere for young and old. When winter events take place, Hamburg is celebrated with mulled wine and sausages that are everywhere on the Outer Alster. Winter events are very rare, but still very popular in Hamburg, especially in the winter months.
The Port of Hamburg, known as Germany's largest hub for imports and exports, is located in the city centre, and the many industrial companies in Hamburg are characterised by world-class standards. Hamburg is also home to many of the world's largest financial service providers and institutions. Financial services are of particular importance in Germany, as is the ability to connect Germany's financial markets with the rest of Europe, and even the US. Indeed, Hamburg's high-speed rail lines and air travel to the United States are a magnet for visitors. These attractions have helped make Hamburg a major tourist destination in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Many cities in Germany hold their own festivals, including the largest Oktoberfest in Munich, but also festivals such as the Berlin City Festival, the Eiffel Tower Festival in Hamburg and the Kirmefest in Hamburg, which also attract millions of visitors. There are many hotels for festivals to choose from during the festival, so make sure you book something for your budget.
Hamburg Caravaning Fair is a platform where you can find everything you need to know about the latest models, including cars, trucks, vans, buses, bicycles, motorcycles and other vehicles for sale. At Wichern Schule, the Hamburg Youth Education Fair is the platform on which education experts and former programme participants give advice and answer questions. Register to be informed about current events organized and funded by the Center for German Studies and European Studies.
The annual highlight of queer events in Hamburg is the OMR festival, which takes place on the city's main square every first Sunday of the month from October to December. The first edition of the festival took place in six halls of the Hamburg Congress Centre. O MRM19 also celebrated the 100th anniversary of its first edition in July and took place in a new venue, Hamburg City Hall.
The OMR Festival 2018 took place in five halls on 65,000 square meters, and the Festival Village hosted exhibitions starting in Hamburg, including works by Jens Voormann, Jürgen Schulz, Michael Schulze, and Giorgio Armani. Berlin Fashion Week is experimental, from catwalk shows to professional shows and performances.
Gourmets will find plenty of delicious freshly caught surfers at hundreds of street food stalls, and those looking for a party can experience raves on boats. Rock stars like Rammstein perform at the festival, and the city's beer halls are filled to the brim. Come to the Rose Monday parade, but stay to attend all the great concerts, parties and events that take place during the carnival. Music and food are the main attractions of this annual celebration of German cultural heritage in Hamburg.
The Reeperbahn Hamburg (Germany) is Europe's largest club festival and offers a diverse mix of emerging and established artists from all over the world. The festival also coincides with its conference programme, which is to be linked to Hamburg's long-term market malaise in shipping issues. The Hamburg Shipowners Forum will present the highly developed and prosperous cluster that has developed in Hamburg since its foundation as a port city in 1855. The best representatives of the city's shipping industry and its representatives from all over the world will gather here, and various events such as exhibitions, workshops, seminars and workshops will take place here daily.
When I first moved to Germany, I started attending Hamburg expat events to get the chance to fly to Hamburg, meet new people and feel more comfortable in my new home. I realised that there was a huge gap between expats living in Hamburg and the rest of the world. Fittingly, my first taste of this city on the waterfront began at the Elbphilharmonie. This festival takes place every summer and brings jazz concerts to the heart of one of Germany's most popular destinations, the city of Hamburg.
