Went with my husband and mother in law earlier this year and we thoroughly enjoyed the musical! The woman playing the wise old monkey had a voice that gave me goosebumps! It changed the way we view musicals, from finding them boring, we turned to active seekers for good musicals!

We watched the lion king from the mezzanine level. Great show, awesome performers and of course wonderful music. What I missed a little bit, compared to e.g. New York, were the musical themed drinks. But that did not limit our fun. Show's in German.

I tell you, there is a SHOW going on here. Musical is not every man's thing, but if you like something like that, The linon's King is a good one. For me, it was way too loud.

When in hamburg, please go there. You will not regret it. I have also seen the lion king in London, but I liked it more in hamburg. Amazing, catchy tunes still in my head. Don't miss out on that

Loved every minute of it! The stage setting is simple, the costumes elaborate, the performers impressive and the songs a good mix of those we know and love and an extra few that fit quite well. The cherry on top is the location across the Harbour - the shuttle boat ride offers the perfect view! My suggestion: it's not even... More

The musical is expensive but very good. Singers have a very strong English accent though (they sing in German). Performance, stage, costumes, all very good.

Although we do not speak German, this was a lifetime experience- the scenography, the costumes, the airy dances and movements of the participants, the animals represented by the actors- beautiful and memorable

The tickets are expensive but well worth it. A polished show that still holds magic, especially for children. The whole experience could be improved by increasing the bar staff at peak periods to reduce the waiting time for guests.
