Hamburg is heaven for culture lovers, who can choose from more than 60 theatres, a hundred music clubs, 60 museums and almost 30 cinemas. No other German city stages more musicals ─ currently six big productions ─ which makes Hamburg Germany’s undisputed musical capital. 'The Lion King' is shown twice a day at the musical's own venue located on the banks of the Elbe river.
International acts from all musical genres put Hamburg on their tour schedule. The inauguration of the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg in January 2017 has taken classical music in Hamburg to a new level.
