Hamburg Heritage Days

Like many other cities across the continent, Hamburg celebrates European Heritage Day by inviting the public to the city’s various monuments.

Hamburg Heritage Day

From Blankenese’s Roman Gardens in the west to Bergedorf Castle in the east: on Heritage Day, more than 140 single events aim to present Hamburg's many different historical sites to the public. Churches, city halls, parks, gardens, cemeteries, schools, company headquarters, warehouses, mansions and barracks are just some of the Hamburg heritage sites that will be open to the public. As part of European Heritage Day, the event takes place annually on the second Sunday in September. On this day, 50 European countries present their cultural riches to the public. In Hamburg, the Hamburg Monument Foundation is responsible for organising Heritage Day. Following the example of the British National Trust, the foundation has been active to preserve historical buildings and sites in the municipal area.
