Live on stage: The best Musicals in Hamburg 2017

Excited about musicals? Following New York and London, Hamburg is the world’s third biggest musical metropolis. Stage Entertainment does always host four different musicals simultaneously that attract more than two million visitors per year. If you think about attending one of them but you struggle to decide which, I embedded official videos for you to catch a glimpse and discover which one you prefer. My personal tips are Disney’s Aladdin and Disney’s Der König der Löwen, as both of them guarantee fun for people of all ages.

Once you make your decision to book tickets, you can switch the language of Stage Entertainment‘s booking process to English after you started your ticket search for the period of your vacation. Enjoy a magnificent performance!

Disney’s Aladdin

Disney’s Aladdin celebrated its Europe premiere in Hamburg in December 2015 and tells the magical story of Aladdin, Dschinni, and the famous three wishes. The colorful Arabian Nights production receives very good reviews and would be my first choice.

Disney’s Der König der Löwen

Disney’s Der König der Löwen is an all-time favorite and on stage since December 2001. The unforgettable experience begins with an Elbe river shuttle to reach the southern side of the port of Hamburg – an additional highlight that makes this event even more special.

Hinterm Horizont

Hinterm Horizont is an autobiographic and in parts fictional Musical about Udo Lindenberg, the first West German musician to be granted permission to play a concert in the GDR. On stage until October 2017.

Ich war noch niemals in New York

Ich war noch niemals in New York contains the greatest hits of Udo Jürgens, including “Aber bitte mit Sahne” and “Mit 66 Jahren”. The musical will be performed until summer 2017.

    1. Travel to Hamburg

      Hi Ali,

      yes, the Lion King is performed in German and I am unfortunately not aware of any English events in this regard. The only place that offers English shows is – this is a traditional theatre, so maybe not what you are looking for… nevertheless, I wish you a great stay in Hamburg!
