Hamburg’s biggest public festival is the DOM, and there’s something to keep everyone entertained - from roller coaster rides for the thrill seekers, to culinary delights for the foodies.

Plus, we bet you didn’t know that Hamburg’s famous Red Light District has its own festival! The Reeperbahn Festival showcases hundreds of up-and-coming musical acts, from heavy metal to hip-hop, punk to indie, jazz and soul. It’s the perfect chance to broaden your mind and experience the rocking music venues of St Pauli.

But, if you fancy donning lederhosen, guzzling copious beers, and singing rowdily, you don’t need to catch a train to Bavaria. Though Oktoberfest is not strictly a Hamburg tradition, there’s an annual celebration held here too…So bottoms up!
