Visit the museum

The classic in bad weather - but no less bad for that. Depending on the size, you can definitely spend a few hours in the rain here and gain some really new impressions.

When you visit the MK&G, you can view changing exhibitions ranging from antiquity to contemporary innovations. Before or after, you can hang out or work in the Freiraum and/or pay a visit to the Destille restaurant and the Walther König bookshop.

The Hamburger Kunsthalle is huge - perfect for a rainy day! You can spend hours wandering around and marveling at the various exhibitions. Once you've done that, you can pop into the in-house Café Liebermann and the museum store. By the time you've finished, it may well have rained off.

Practice wellness

Although rain is probably a permanent issue in Hamburg, it still gets on your nerves from time to time. So self-care is the order of the day!

In the huge vabali spa in Glinde (well, not quite Hamburg anymore) you can really pamper yourself and relax when the weather is bad. Bali feeling included!

Get creative

We've all been there: the sun is shining and you're spending your free time outdoors. After all, hours of sunshine have to be used. But when it rains, you have enough time to spend indoors with a clear conscience and take the opportunity to give free rein to your creative streak.

At the Unique Mash Pop Up on Osterstraße, you can not only store in a relaxed atmosphere, but also let off steam creatively. Various events such as weaving courses, yoga brunches, screen and lino printing or knitting courses will banish the rainy blues.

You can also make your own macramé decorations, practise linocutting or make dried flower wreaths in the blank space in a relaxed and dry environment. So be sure to check out the events!

To the planetarium

Coziness to the power of 1000: snuggle up in an armchair in the planetarium, put your cell phone away and relax and watch constellations or other events.

"It's colder outside at night" - and drier! That's why you're in perfect hands in the planetarium and can even admire a clear starry sky during the day. So make yourself comfortable in your armchair and dream yourself away to distant galaxies (without the rain).

To the movies

You can snuggle up in an armchair at the cinema just as comfortably. Watch a really good movie with your full attention and go home afterwards satisfied that you made it out even in bad weather.

The beautiful cinema in St. Georg offers sneak previews, cinema hits, blockbusters, classics and arthouse films - and even in the original language. You won't notice the weather in front of the screen anyway!

We don't know whether the Astor actually invented "coziness". But this is what it feels like: with super comfy armchairs, delicious snacks AND welcome drinks, with which you can drink your way through the weather if necessary.

To the flea market

We ❤️ Flea markets. Admittedly, it's not exactly the best rainy weather activity. But no worries: we have a really good solution for you here!

Flea market in the rain! No problem at Flohdom Horner Rennbahn: the huge area is covered. Here you can stroll, haggle and store for junk every Saturday, whatever the weather.

Marvel at theater (plays)

"I never go to the theater." - AND WHY NOT? It doesn't always have to be a concert, party or cornern. The latter is garbage when it's raining anyway. So get out and experience culture in the theater.
