Hamburg - the city of art and culture! Spend an entertaining evening at the theatre or learn about the history of Hamburg in the Speicherstadt Museum!
Hamburg currently has several musicals on offer: in the “Neue Flora” theatre, “Aladdin” is enchanting visitors, while at the Operettenhaus you can be abducted by songs by Udo Lindenberg in “Hinterm Horizont”. Or let yourself be lured to the port, where “The Lion King” is setting the stage alight.

The Speicherstadt Museum is housed in an authentic warehouse dating back to 1888. The museum shows how imported goods were stored and processed back then.
