Water light games in the neighborhood of the hotel Heimhude
Why don’t enjoy the popular water light concerts in the nearby Planten un Blomen? Within walking distance of Hotel Heimhude, our guests can admire colorful water light concerts from May 1st to September 30th. You can watch the combination of classical music and water fountains, which are illuminated by almost 800 spotlights, and for example the music of “Pomp and Circumstances” by Hector Berlioz, every evening from 10 pm (in September from 9 pm). A glance at the clock and the sky is enough to decide spontaneously whether you want to experience the spectacle.
The water light organ is played live: synchronized to the recorded music, colorful illuminated water fountains from 99 water nozzles move up to 35 meters high after a specially written score. As early as 1938, the first water fountain was installed in the heart of the city. Since it was expanded to the International Horticultural Exhibition (IGA) in 1953 and 1963, today’s so called “Wasserlichtorgel” has been in operation since 1973 and attracts up to 300,000 Hamburg and Non-Hamburg citizens every year.
If you can not make it to see the colorful show in the evening, you have the chance to experience the daily variation at 14, 16 and 18 clock every day. At our reception, we will be happy to show you how to get to Planten un Blomen.
