Last summer we organized the first big CouchSurfing Weekend with more than 250 participants in Hamburg and had a blast. Next weekend we invite CouchSurfers from all over the world to the 2nd edition with even better tours, activities, grilling, chilling, beach-sitting and big parties. 

Yes, there are just a few days left until we kick-off the next big CouchSurfing Invasion in my beautiful city. Due to the success last summer and the positive reactions we are proud to offer more tour options and a huge venue for the main party on Saturday. Moreover we will have a warm-up on Thursday and a post-party on Monday for all of you that plan a longer stay.

Program Highlights

We want to show you the variety one can find in Hamburg as best as possible, therefore we planned various events at different Spots. I will line out just a few – you can download the complete program here: ProgramHHUP2013.pdf

The official welcome picnic will be on Friday 6 p.m. at the Schanzenpark in the vibrant, alternative quarter named “Schanzenviertel”.

This is also where the alternative tour will take place on Saturday at 2 p.m. and I will be your Guide!
Compared to the other Hamburg Tours I will introduce you to the history of the Schanzenviertel and focus on Streetart – during the last 10 years Hamburg became a HotSpot for popular Streetartists. I'll tell something about the artists, show you murals and give some insights about the alternative scene in this area – meeting point will be the advertising column in front of the S-Bahn Station Sternschanze, the duration will be aprox. 2hrs.

The "Terrace Hill" inside the Bunker is the venue for the main party on Saturday

The venue for the Main Party is simply amazing – we will dance the night away on top of a WW2 bunker in the middle of the city. “Terrace Hill” is the name of the venue which offers also the best view over hamburg at night. For all of you who are not able to join the other events there will be the possibility to buy entrance tickets there for just 5€!


Tickets, Maps and more Information

For just 10€ you get a beautiful wristband to attend all activities – with this money we cover the costs for the rent of venue on Saturday and you get 2 free drinks and food at the picnic. Grab your ticket on the official page: http://hamburginvasion.eu/
