CSD and Hamburg Pride

Christopher Street Day in Hamburg

Hamburg Pride & CSD

The annual CSD and the Pride Parade are the flamboyant highlight of Hamburg's vibrant LGBTQI scene.

CSD and Hamburg Pride

Hamburg, as a city that refers to itself as both worldly and open-minded, has a vibrant LGBT-community. To embrace this community, the annual PRIDE WEEK offers around 100 events in such diverse locations as PRIDE HOUSE, clubs, churches and city hall. Several performances and parties will celebrate achievements like the legalisation of same-sex marriage, whereas speeches and discussions will remind attendees that sexual equality is still far from normality in many parts of the world. Festivities during PRIDE WEEK will be highlighted by the PRIDE PARADE. The parade will take place during the Christopher-Street-Day weekend and starts on Lange Reihe street in the LGBT-hotspot of St. Georg. The STREET FESTIVAL on Jungfernstieg boulevard will officially end the event- and colourful week.

For the 40th anniversary of CSD in Hamburg, the city has decided to bid for EuroPride 2020 to take place in Hamburg. Read more about the EuroPride 2020 bid here.
