Ahoi, Hamburg!

The Reeperbahn: Hamburg's most (in)famous party district. Formerly a place where sailers would go after returning from the sea, the Kiez is home to clubs and bars that play electronic dance music, rock, metal, indie and jazz music. Did you know that the Beatles made their debut here too? On the night before the Preconvention begins, we would like to show you this fun and diverse part of the city.

Enjoy Hamburg’s Landmark:
Organ Concert in St. Michaelis Church

Hamburg's main church St. Michaelis is one of the most beautiful baroque churches in Northern Germany and a landmark of Hamburg. The church tower is not only a jewel for Hamburg's cityscape, but also a true treasure on the inside. In the main church there are three organs that can be played together to form a symphonic cathedral organ. The sounds of the Steinmeyer, the Marcussen and the Fernwerk organs envelop the listeners from all sides and fascinates people from all over the world.
