Port Anniversary: Activities - the best events of the Hamburg Port Anniversary weekend.

Hamburg celebrates and the world joins in!

What fun: Hamburg is proud of its port and celebrates it yearly with the world‘s greatest port festival in a unique maritime setting. It's an event for the whole family.

SAVE THE DATE: The 835th HAMBURG PORT ANNIVERSARY will take place 9–12 MAY 2024 – this year for four full days with Ascension Day on Thursday!

The Hamburg City Authority for Economy and Innovation (BWI) is proud to announce that there will be an additional event on Satuday night. Because of this, the traditional fireworks show will be moved to Friday instead of Saturday.

This results in the following changes:
NEW: Friday Night Show with traditional fireworks display on 10 May 2024.
Saturday Night Show on 11 May 2024, with spectacular light illuminations upon the Elbe river, and much more. Full programme TBA by spring 2024.
