But there’s plenty to enjoy aside of festival events – every year visitors flock to Wendland's Cultural Country Festival, for example, and crowd into artists' studios. You can also get to know smaller, regional events: the Oste river international cardboard boat grand prix, for example, or the Wattolümpiade in Brunsbüttel, Dithmarschen’s cabbage festival…there is so much to discover that’s second to none.
Outdoor enjoyment is available all over the Metropolitan Region – in the wonderful countryside, in one of the many open-air museums, or simply trundling along the rail cycle track. If it’s rock that moves you, come to one of the big music festivals at Wacken or Scheeßel.
But even if the weather’s not good, there is no time to be bored – the City of Hamburg and the whole region has plenty of exciting indoor worlds Indoor-Welten that are just waiting to be discovered.
Make a discovery tour through the Hamburg Metropolitan Region – it’s worth it!
