On May 7th, 1189 Emperor Frederick Barbarossa issued the people of Hamburg a license, which granted ships on the Elbe to ride through to the North Sea duty-free. Thus this was the birthday of Hamburg’s port and in 2019 it will be celebrated for the 830th time from the 10th to the 12th of May. During this breathtaking event the stars are the ships! There is a most amazing program on the Elbe in front of the jetties as well as in the historic harbor “Oevelgönne” and in “HafenCity” (the harbor city district). In 2019, more than 300 ships from all areas of maritime life will attend the celebration – including windjammers, traditional sailors and museum ships, naval and cruise ships, motor and sailing yachts as well as fire brigade, fisheries protection, water police, federal police, THW (the technical aid organization) and customs vehicles. In front of the unique backdrop of the current port in operation,  traditional highlights, such as the large parades of the numerous ships entering and leaving the harbor and  the popular open-ship actions in between.


Ashore more than 200 maritime, cultural and culinary programs ensure great pleasure for young and old. The “Colorful Harbor Mile” offers gastronomic delights and entertainment. Free concerts and live acts on stages with national and international stars transform the space of the world’s largest harbor festival into a huge festival landscape. After the successful premiere of the “Elbphilharmonie Concerts on Screen” last year, in 2019 concerts from the Great Hall will once again be shown on a big screen on the plaza up front. Exhibitions, guided tours and special offers of the museums complete the cultural program. Another atmospheric highlight is the big AIDA firework display on Saturday evening, which transforms the night sky over the Elbe into a sparkling sea of color. Each year, another country is given the opportunity to present itself as a partner of the event and to inspire visitors for its culture and way of life, including its culinary specialties. Country Partner 2019 is the French region Occitanie.

BERLIN 2019: A year full of festivals & events

From a divided Berlin to a city of freedom – 30 years fall of the Berlin Wall

On November 09th, 2019, the fall of the Berlin Wall will be celebrated for the 30th time. From the  04th to the 10th November, Berlin is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Peaceful Revolution and the fall of the Berlin Wall with a major festival. For seven days, the city will be transformed into seven locations for a unique open-air exhibition and event venue. The Berlin Route of the Revolution is told through places that are representative of important events in the history of 1989/90.

These stagings of historical images and films, framed by sound installations, also form the backdrop for a diverse exhibition and event program – jointly designed with museums, memorials, clubs, educational institutions, initiatives & artist groups.

Interspersed with seven open-air exhibitions, the themes connect the original venues to a route of revolution along which concerts, podium discussions, eyewitness talks, readings, film screenings and poetry slams invite listeners to join in and join in the conversation.

The highlight of the week-long celebration is a city-wide music festival on the evening of the  9th of  November. Along the route of the revolution, a festival of freedom is to be celebrated together with Berliners and guests from all over the world.

Numerous stages will feature renowned national and international artists whose sound or own history is connected with the events of 1989/90. With a wide musical spectrum – from classical music, rock to jazz, pop to hip-hop – the end of the jubilee celebrations is based on the power of music: in an impressive finale, the same piece will be played on all stages, which the artists and the visitors will hear * co-ordinate with each other and unite the city into a large community of revelers.

Events dealing with the history of division, the struggle for freedom and the process of reunification take place not only in the run-up to and immediately around 09th November, but throughout the year in Berlin.


Bauhaus celebrates 100 years since its founding in 2019

2019 marks the Bauhaus centenary – the renowned architecture and design school was founded in Weimar in 1919, moved to nearby Dessau in 1925 and finally to Berlin in 1932, to beclosed down by the Nazis a year later. For this momentous occasion countless players throughout Germany put together a program which allows the public to re-discover and re-connect with the work of this innovative school for design, architecture and applied arts – among them the yearlong event series in Berlin as well as the city-wide festival “bauhaus week berlin 2019” (August 31 through September 8). Both of these will convey Bauhaus’ experimental, polymorphous, transnational and radically contemporary character.

The festivities start with the grand opening festival at Berlin’s Akademie der Künste featuring various performances of dance, film, and immersive art. The city-wide festival “bauhaus week berlin 2019” which opens on the same night as the “Long Night of Museums” (August 31st) and ends with the opening of “Tag des offenen Denkmals” (Open House of all Berlin Monuments on September 8th) brings Bauhaus ideas to life in a participatory fashion across different outdoor venues.


Specifically decorated shop windows on Kantstraße around Savignyplatz and parts of Potsdamer Straße will give an overview of Bauhaus’ 14-year history by introducing the key players and explaining the school´s intentions. The Bauhaus movement has been famous for critically examining and challenging the rituals of daily life. The festival “bauhaus week berlin” builds on this approach and offers visitors the chance of spending an entire carefully curated day in the spirit of Bauhaus, following the motto “craftsmanship meets art”. Rise and shine with a morning yoga class on a modernist rooftop to combine physical exercise with architectural observation. Enjoy specially designed Bauhaus lunch menus in selected restaurants around Kant- and Potsdamer Straße. Round off the day`s highlights with evening entertainment at the festival center.
