Communities in Hamburg

Knitting nuts? Trekkies? Foodies? Gamers? Craft Beer connoisseurs? Hamburg has them and we’ll help you discover where they hang out. Try searching for the keywords “Stammtisch Hamburg” followed by your preferred hobby and you’ll soon be making new friends.


If you’re looking to practice your German or another language in an informal setting, consider joining a language group, e.g. Dialog in Deutsch at the Buecherhallen library. The English-Stammtisch meets up 3 times a month for drinks, snacks and lots of chatting in English. Spanish-speakers of all levels meet every Wednesday in AQUÍ for the Spanisch-Stammtisch Hamburg. Those fascinated by all things Japanese are welcome to join the monthly Japanisch-Deutscher-Stammtisch, where it’s not only about language, but also about Japanese culture, food and music.

Sci-Fi fans have the chance to geek out over the best of science fiction over a good meal at Trekdinner Hamburg. Medieval roleplaying and LARP enthusiasts gather at the Zum Tanzenden Einhorn bar for regular activities such as a Magic: The Gathering night, a 'nerd poetry' night and a Wicca night.
