Mehr! Theater am Großmarkt Hamburg:


Mehr! Theater is located directly in the heart of the city between Hamburg's main station and Elbbridges on the grounds of the "Hamburg Großmarkt". The Mehr! Theater is completely integrated into the existing Hamburg Grossmarkthalle, wich is listed and protected as a historic building. The ceiling structure of prestressed concrete arches and the interior height of the Grossmarkthalle of close to 20 meters make a visit here an unforgettable experience. As a veritable “quick-change artist” the visionary venue offers a wide variety of possibilities for theater and musical productions, shows, events, rock and pop concerts, as well as exhibitions. 

Box office hours:

Our Box Office opens 1,5 hours before showtime (only on days of events)

Theater / Foyer hours:

Our theater foyer opens 1 hour before each curtain time. Please note that there are no public restrooms on the Großmarkt grounds. The theater toilets can not be used before the opening of the foyer.

Latecomers/Late Admittance:

Organizers regulate late admittance themselves. Please ask staff at the entrance about the rules pertaining to each event. After the intermission, you can seek out your original seats as usual. A general admission for latecomers before the intermission is only possible in exceptional cases.
