My little brother and I had as a Christmas present received an invitation from my aunt to watch The Lion King. So about a week ago our entire family, mom, dad, cousin etc., (my little brother the youngest with 10, and my Grandmother the oldest with 76 years) got together in Hamburg and Saturday we watched the play. To get... More

This was a gift for my sister and I had mixed expectations. What a positive surprise! Excellent performance, some quality dancing and song. If you wonder there are few bad seats in the house, it is small, so don't worry if you get tickets " way in the back". You'll be fine.

Neither myself nor my husband speak German, but I figured since I am such a lover of musicals and Disney in general, that I would have no problem being entertained. This ended up being true. It is a little bit of a hassle, trying to catch the Ferry to the theatre, but that was part of the excitement. I was... More

Who has seen the movie as a child has probably been fascinated ever since. The musical is just what you might expect knowing the movie. The costumes are amazing. It's wonderful when you see an elephant walking by you through the aisle and bird flying high above your heads while the dancers perform a symphony of giraffes, hippos and antelopes.... More

If you're a collector of musicals it's a must have. It's not just the musical which of course is very beautiful. It's the complete experience: Hamburg, the harbour, the boat tour and finally the view. As the show has been around for such a long time one could argue that some of the shine is off. Still, it's really unique... More

Enjoy the music, the scenery, the costumes and the plot. If you have time, take a apero or dinner in the skyline restaurant with view over the harbour

you need to take a boat to the theater and the logistics are not necessarily good. After so many years you would expect they had this under control. The show itself is ok but the general level of the performers is modest and the tickets are not exactly being given away.
