Only a couple of days from now and the sound of thousands of V-Twin engines will be heard all over town again. The annual Harley Days take place again in Hamburg, this year it´s the 12. time the event takes place. Starting the 26. there will be a colorful and versatile program in our streets and on our public squares.
The beating heart of the event is going to be the popular “Harley Village” near the fruit market area (Amsinckstraße). The area is 40.000 square meters large offers a great deal of fun for bikers and motorcycling fans of all ages.
Near the entrance area there´s the central music stage, where bands play rock, country and heavy metal throughout the day. The highlight is a gig of the band UFO on Saturday.
The “Harley Village” usually is the exit point for the large bike parade on Saturday, 28., that marks the end of all activity.
Every year round about 600.000 visitors enjoy the Harley Days, this year the planning staff expects even more visitors from all over the world. Although it´s a very international meeting, locals love the Harley Days a lot too.
The upcoming event will be rounded up by 100 dealers of all sorts, who offer bikers and fans motorcycle parts, clothing, tuning products and much more to buy.
Fire in the sky will be the topic Friday and Saturday night, when the popular professional pyro show bewitches spectators of all ages.
Side shows will be offered in the red light district, directly on the public square “Spielbudenplatz” and in Downtown Hamburg, on the well known shopping street “Mönckebergstraße”. In Downtown there will be a bike line up for a “good lookers” competition of various cubic capacity classes. Spectators can have a closer look on the bikes, that have been tuned and touched up by their owners in work hours and work hours of time (please don´t touch the bikes!).
Sundays bike parade will lead through “Mönckebergstraße” also, visitors usually show up a little earlier to save great viewing spots.
The Hamburg Harley Days are a constant in local city life attracting visitors from all over the world for 12 years now. UNSER HAMBURG wishes everybody a great time, maybe you enjoy a nice English walking tour through the red light district or the harbor area with us, while you´re in Hamburg anyways 😀
