Welcome to Eventlotse!

Hamburg’s many facets are particularly attractive to event organisers. But whether it be a large function with thousands of visitors in the city centre or a smaller event in an unconventional locations, a suitable space needs to have been found right at the start of the planning phase.

Eventlotse provides an overview of open public and private spaces right across the city with comprehensive information on size, flooring, surrounding area, logistics, security/safety and other factors such as the provider’s contact details. This concise overview also helps organisers prioritise suitable spaces for their event and rule out inappropriate ones before any enquiries or approval processes, making the venue search a form of non-bureaucratic support for providers, authorities and organisers in Hamburg.

Eventlotse is not intended for booking venues but rather serves as an information platform and mediates between event organisers and venue providers. When an event organiser is interested in a venue, they will always need to contact the provider themselves and submit an application.

The Service section contains information, links and documents which may assist you with your event planning and management.
