Hamburg Dom FestivalThree times a year, the Hamburg Dom Festival brings together all those who want to open the doors of entertainment as wide as they will go.
If you are the type of person that says, ‘I need to be entertained every minute - that’s the kind of festival I want,’ Hamburg is waiting with open arms. The Hamburger Dom Festival takes place in spring, summer and winter, and is definitely the sort of festival that goes down well with the whole family. No matter how old you are, at this festival, entertainment is guaranteed. This gigantic funfair festival takes place in the Heiligengeistfeld and we can promise that you won’t forget the fireworks display at the opening ceremony. The festival began in the fourteenth century when Hamburg traders first set up their stands and organised shows and entertainment. With support, the Hamburg Dom Festival has grown to its current size, welcoming over ten million people a year, and you will see that it is now the epitome of what is meant by becoming an established tradition. After your visit, we won’t be at all surprised if you start to write songs and poems for the festival; you have every right to love this festival with all your heart.
