Musicals and shows

When Cats burst onto the scene as the first musical in Germany, nobody could have predicted how successful the genre would be. Today, more than 25 years later, Germany is the third-biggest market for musicals after the USA and the UK. Musicals and shows such as DISNEY'S THE LION KING, MAMMA MIA and Starlight Express are filling concert halls and theatres not just in Hamburg – Germany's capital of musicals – but throughout the country.

Take the free shuttle boat from Hamburg's Landungsbrücken right into the heart of the captivating world of Africa. Disney's hit musical THE LION KING whisks visitors away to the African savannah, bringing the indescribable beauty and exotic animals of the Serengeti to the Stage Theatre at Hamburg's port.
