The Hamburg Großmarkt, completed in 1962 under the supervision of architect Bernhard Hermkes, set new standards with its futuristic glass and concrete architecture and is today under heritage protection as one of the last examples of prestressed concrete construction in Hamburg. The unobstructed view of the eight centimeter thick shell of the concrete arches and especially of the enormously high ceiling is particularly impressive. The visitor senses this height throughout the whole theater. The highest point towers 20 meters above the theater seats.
The theater’s imposing auditorium, the foyer, and the bars are spaciously and openly designed. The purist architecture dispenses with distracting dividing walls and suspended ceilings. This spectacular ambience is also available to companies for major events with that “certain something.” Smaller events, as well, such as presentations, readings, or anniversaries, can be stylishly staged. The auditorium, the foyer, and two separate rooms offer a variety of possible uses.
Not just the architecture of the theater itself is impressive but also the ample size of the forecourt, direct on the water’s edge with a sweeping view of Hamburg’s Speicherstadt (warehouse district) and harbor. The new theater is completely integrated into the existing Großmarkt and has a total of about 6,500 square meters, spread out over three floors. The stage is level with the ground and provides space for a 19.20 meter high stage tower under the rolling dome ceiling. The auditorium is designed for seating some 2,400 people.
Marketplace and Cultural Site. Since its opening 50 years ago, the Grossmarkt has developed into Germany’s foremost marketplace for fruit and vegetables. To supplement the colorful activities of its many dealers, a special kind of new event location is being created. The Grossmarkt has an excellent infrastructure and is centrally located in the cultural belt encircling Hamburg’s city center.
In the future, the market will mark the eastern endpoint of Speicherstadt Boulevard, which will afford bicyclists and pedestrians a fabulous view of Hafen-City, Speicherstadt, and, finally, of the grounds of the Hamburg Großmarkt itself.
Our extraordinary facilities offer the optimal setting for every type of event.
