What people are saying about Hamburg

That there is a way to get group bookings that may have to be canceled despite everything. That's perfect and we were all able to take part in terms of health and it was an unforgettable day on the occasion of a milestone birthday, which we had expanded with a meal in the sky restaurant.

We are very satisfied. We bought four tickets in the 3rd prize category. We only found out the exact seats when the online tickets were delivered. But we were pleasantly surprised by the good seats with a good view of the stage.
