The Hamburg Winter Beer Festival offers visitors the chance to attend one of the largest fun fairs in Germany. The Beer festival comes alive at winter consisting of live festive music, thrilling rides at the fun fair and attractions for all the family.
The DOM is a part of Hamburg's tradition and dates back to the 14th century, when St Mary's Cathedral (St Marien Dom) offered traders and craftsmen refuge during bad weather. The DOM guarantees adventure, fun, excitement and nostalgia. The name goes back to a group of merchants, craftsmen and jugglers, who, following some disagreements, were granted the right in 1337 to seek shelter in the cathedral "Marien-Dom" whenever the weather was particularly bad. At the end of the 19th century, the fairground showmen and machine operators found their new "home" on Heiligengeistfeld, the venue of today's DOM. The venue is always busy at both the Winter festival and during the Hamburg Summer Beer Festival, when it is recommended to always book in advance.
The Hamburg Dom is one of the largest fun fairs in Germany and offers its visitors a 3 kilometre area filled with thrilling rides and family entertainment amongst the beer festivals many beer tents. Three times a year the area transforms into an entertainment area suitable for both young and old. Enjoy roasted almonds, candied fruits, bratwursts and potato pancakes while strolling through the market. The fair area is next to the famous 'Reeperbahn' - Hamburg's 'sinful mile' - where partygoers can enjoy the never ending nightlife of the maritime town when the Hamburg Dom closes its doors.
