Water & Lights Concerts at the Planten un Blomen park in Hamburg

Water & Light Concerts

Mesmerising, colourful lights dance to the rhythm of classical music: what a wonderful setting for a long summer evening at the park. The beloved Water and Light Concerts at Planten un Blomen lake take place every evening from May till the end of August. Bring a blanket, a picnic, maybe a bottle of wine — and enjoy the show. The best part? It's free!


From 1 May to 31 August, the colourful spectacle at the Planten un Blomen park takes place every day at 10:00 p.m. Additional water shows (without light effects and music) take place daily at 2:00 p.m, 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. On Sundays and holidays, the water shows at 2:00 p.m. are accompanied by a musical programme.
