Archive: Down on the Ice in Hamburg on the Alster Lake | 10.02.2012
We were there in 1997, 2010 and 2012. Hamburg's Alstereisvergnügung, an ice event that only happens if it stays cold enough, for long enough, and the ice reaches a thickness of 20cm, or more. Then! Milllions of people turn up, stands with hot drinks and food appear all around the city centre lake and fun is had by all. In 1997 the stands were on the ice and it was an official event. The next official event after that happened on 10th, 11th and 12th February 2012. Although the ice froze in 2010, the go-ahead for an official event was not given due to warmer weather and uncertainty about safety. As such no stands appeared. There were major differences in the ice quality in 1997. It was very rough, having broken up and then frozen again. In 2010 and 2012, the surface of the lake was smooth enough to skate on, almost everywhere, without areas having to be smoothed, as in 1997. Please select the banner, to see our photos from 7th and 10th February 2012

Top What's On: Christmas Events -

Permanent feature: Mad you might be saying, it's far too early to be talking about Christmas parties a few months or even over one year in advance, but did you know it usually takes a minimum of three months to set up an organised ticket based party? Organising a function and finding a venue near Christmas is usually difficult. Many started in January to book the party venue for the following December and all the other good venues were snapped up, long before Christmas by others. Some venues are booked years in advance. All this could be said for entertainers, caterers and fancy dress hire as well. Quality venues and entertainers are booked well in advance, which may act as a warning for those who are still available a few days before Christmas and New Year. If you are thinking of saving money, by paying as little as you can, remember how many cowboys there are out there!

Help might be at hand in Hamburg, as some club houses in garden association grounds remain available for longer, as do some sport association club houses. Garden association: You might have noticed large areas sectioned into private gardens with a type of garden house on each plot. In the middle of these garden areas, there is usually a club house with a telephone number on the notice board outside - these are similiar to British allotments, but mostly very beaurocratic

Many ferries and sightseeing ships and boats in the harbour and on the Alster can be booked for functions, as can some of the underground trains and historic trains.

Train and bus times: - select English flag
Map - Enter: Feldstrasse / Feldstraße
The nearest train stations are yellow line U3 Feldstrasse and U3 St.Pauli. Just around the corner, red line U2 Messehallen is relatively empty at busy times. U3 trains are smaller and stations are packed, which can be extremely annoying at busy funfair times and even worse when St.Pauli is playing football at the same time. If you hear of any demos, go another day! Dom is next to two problem demo-happy and alternative areas - Sternschanze and Karolinenviertel.
Mass train-ticket controls usually take place upstairs in Feldstrasse or St.Pauli train stations during Dom times. It is not possible to leave the train station without a ticket and controllers dressed in normal clothing are on the platforms to catch those who try to catch the next train, or to stop those who go back down the steps after seeing the controllers. Take the red line train to U2 Messehallen, to lessen the chance of being caught up in the mass of people held up by the controls. It is just as close to the fun-fair.
Parking is difficult, at busy times, unless you pay extortionate parking fees. If you want to try your luck, we suggest the roads around the television tower. Pickpockets and criminals gather when the funfair is on. Gangs operate in this area, and gypsy children are often used to pick pockets. Do not take valuables with you, do not wear mobile phones on your belt and do not wear rucksacks on your back. If anyone bumps into you, check your valuables. There is a police station on the fun fair itself, to the right of the football ground club-house entrance - only open during the fair.
Prices are high for food etc

Schlagermove every year in Hamburg. Wierd but wonderful and not as bad as the techno moves. You can take part in an annual 70's style free party. Many roads are closed near the Reeperbahn, Alster and city centre - /
Grilling: Did you know that you are only allowed to have a BBQ circa 4 times a year, depending on local laws, and only then when the smoke does not annoy the neighbours? Often you are required to give 48 hours notice to all neighbours and football is not an excuse to go over the amount stated by law. At 10pm you are required to go indoors and keep quiet. Source: and various websites. Note: if you have a problem with a landlord, we suspect you'll need to be a member of the Mieterverein for circa 12 months before you can use them to take legal action. Many landlords are members of another association known as the Eigentümerverband, who help deal with difficult tenants.

Top What's On: Hamburg Fish Market
The famous Hamburg Fish Market - Sunday Shopping Tip - 5am to 10am. Trains: U3 St.Pauli and S-Bahn Koenigstrasse. Photos: HEP. All rights reserved
A unique event, every Sunday from 5am to 9:30am/10am (Starts at 7am from 16th Nov to 14th March). If you park your car in this area on Saturday night and go off to the disco or to any bars, it'll be towed away at 4am. Just before 4am, you will be amazed by the long queue of tow- trucks getting ready to cash-in, under orders of the traffic police
This is the place where the early risers go and where the party continues after the discos and bars close. Live music on two stages, German music, culinary specialties, plants, local produce... pure Hanseatic Hamburg tradition - not so much fish. If the harbour floods, this venue building is usually under water. It has been adapted to withstand regular floods. Tip: Prices drop at the end of the market.

Top What's On: Miniature Wonderland Hamburg

Written in August 2001: One of the biggest model railways in the world has opened its doors in the Hamburg harbour area

Twin brothers Frederik und Gerrit Braun (33) wanted to offer Hamburg an excellent tourist attraction. Since they were small boys, the brothers had always wanted to build a large model railway. Together with their father and with the help of the Hamburger Sparkasse, plus a few million German Marks, they started to build the model railway which now covers an area of 1600 sq´ metres

16th August 2001. Over 500 locomotives and 7000 Wagons can be seen taking turns on many miles of track

Great attention to detail has been taken in constructing the landscapes. Houses, cars and streets have been fitted with over 20,000 bulbs, which are all controlled by computer. Within the space of 30 Minutes, a normal day can be simulated. Guests can control certain operations, by pressing any of the over 100 switches. Over 50,000 trees, 10,000 cars etc were needed to fill the 1600 sq´ metre hall and 544 sq´ metre model railway. On one of the longest rails, it´s possible to see the German high speed trains, ICE, hurtling through the model landscape

40,000 hours have been invested in this project up to August 2001, so why not pop in and say hello and tell them how good it is. By the way, it's next to the Hamburg Dungeon, another Hamburg attraction and it is also in an area that is becoming increasingly popular through the renovation of old warehouses, that used to be in the customs only area. Coffee shops and interesting attractions are appearing regularly

December 2003: See timetable on website, as queues can be very long at peak times. The active timetable helps to overcome this problem.

Rough Guide

Hamburg English Pages can put you in contact with British, Cuban and German DJ's, with and without mobile disco equipment

2002 - Hiring disco equipment without DJ and CD's is a costly business in Hamburg and can cost as much as a cheap/bad DJ with equipment. Hiring a good mobile DJ starts at around 300 Euros, up to 600 Euros or more, depending on what is needed, how far they have to travel and how late you intend to finish. You pay for what you get! If you pay less than 350 Euros in Germany, you run the risk of getting a bedroom DJ, who will frighten your guests away, rather than entertain them. Saving money, only means stress. Remember, there are more people out there who think they are DJ's, than real DJ's! Many bad and cheap DJ's have ruined wedding parties, leaving the bride and bridegroom high and dry. As a result, the guests leave a lot earlier than planned. Around 70 percent of DJ's in Hamburg fall into the risk catagory, so it pays to ask for crudentials and references. We can usually tell a good DJ by his/her CD/record collection, choice of mobile disco equipment and the fact that there is a back-up amplifier, among many important crudentials. Good DJ's usually do not speak too much about ability, when asked, but when the sales pitch gets out of hand, you usually have a bad one. A contract and a tax number should be offered. A so-called Gewerbeschein should be available

The ability of a DJ to make and break a party, or even a commercially run disco, is still underestimated, even after years of ruined parties. It's amazing how the no-profit price that a cowboy DJ charges, spreads like wildfire, but the ability of a professional DJ remains a secret. A good DJ must be able to read the body language of the people on the the dance floor, plus the body language of people who are sitting and standing. His or her musical preferences have been left at home. A DJ who arrives with one box of records and starts to mix one record into the other with their head down and headphones on, is not concentrating on the people around them and cannot know what is needed in advance. These DJ's usually only mix what they have prepared and repeat the exercise throughout the evening (they are incapable of anything else), often resulting in Techno megamixes being played at weddings without a single traditional record being played at all and commercial discos going bankrupt. A club DJ (without disco equipment) who knows what he/she is doing and has excellent musc knowledge, is not available at the weekend for less than 200 Euros per 4 hour evening (2002) - extra if longer, usually more depending on the reputation, ability, CD/record collection and name. If your DJ, without equipment, accepts 100 Euros, don't be suprised when the evening is a failure, or a regular event loses visitors fast - regular events will never see the visitors again and they will tell others not to go

A good DJ concentrates on the people around him, 100 percent of the time and can mix one record into the other if needed, but only then. He or she rarely sits and does not allow people to regularly disturb them in thier work area. They take music requests without complaining and only play them at the correct time, not straight away or if playable without losing guests. He/she does not allow countless speeches and breaks to ruin the continuity and atmosphere and organises a plan of action in advance with organisers to avoid problems. Breaks in an evening, that have not been carefully planned have a hidden psychlogical effect on the guests and results in impatience and guests leaving early. A DJ needs about 10 to 30 minutes to warm the guests up after every break, depending on whether the guests are the dancing type, or not

You have now organised your venue. But did you know that if you have a sunny terrace, or bar, that is far away or seperate from the dancefloor, the dancefloor will remain empty, regardless of how good your DJ or band is? Make sure your dancefloor is where your guests are likely to stand or sit and that it is not too big. Guests never dance on a massive dancefloor, especially if you only have 100 guests. Last but not least, your entertainment will require access to the venue about 2 hours in advance. 1 hour is alright, but if a technical problem arises during testing, there will be no more time to rectify it. If you organise a band and a DJ, make sure that the band does not take all the available space and visa-versa

Cheques/Checks are not welcome and payment a few days later, not at all. Sadly, some party organisers do not pay, or try to pay less at the end of the evening, resulting in some entertainers insisting on payment in advance or deposits. I personally believe payment should be made in advance

Professional DJ's can also include personal tips here and we would like to hear your experiences concerning booking music for your event or party - good or bad. See top of page for interactive groups and contact page

Further DJ, event and music tips will be included here, if received. If you would like to add your experiences, then please send us a short summary, which could be included here. We would appreciate knowing if you would like your first name or full name mentioned or not at all. You can post your tips in our groups and we will copy it here

Satellite & Cable TV Links - read the FAQ's very carefully
By the way, if anyone is considering satellite TV and you are renting an apartment, you might need to know, that as a foreigner in Germany, you have the right to have access to TV programmes in your own language, even if your German neighbours have been refused permission to have a dish fitted. You will have to ask where you can fit the dish. If all else fails and you have a balcony, set the dish up, using a sun umbrella stand. If the dish was fixed to the building it could cause damage that your landlord could object to - this includes damage caused by lightening, so be careful as the dish may need to be earthed and insured. Using a sun umbrella stand, reportedly means that the dish is no longer a fixed object and has a different status in law - it also appears to be possible to screw the dish onto the railings of a balcony. I am aware of at least 10 people who have managed to do this. So far they have had no objections. Sadly, I don't have a balcony... We have not confirmed all of this, so take care not to go ahead without checking first. We have also received info that German law banning dishes goes against European law and human rights. A test case in the courts should be taking place sometime, which could result in you and the German population having the right to have a dish - we do not have any other info, only these links > one - two - three - we are not in a position to translate legal matters - please use our translation page for a rough translation, but be aware that misunderstandings could take place
The Death of MTV. Do you miss MTV? What happened to MTV? Germany: Ever since MTV went German, new depths of non-entertainment have been achieved. Odd contests, plasticine puppets cut bits off each other, sex, Ozzy Osbourne and his pointless effort and music seems to have taken last place alongside wanna-be VJ's. OK MTV, when is Music TV and quality coming back? Hey, Ray Cox, come back and save what's left! It's getting as bad as German commercial TV and Radio - swearing, insulting rap, sex all day and so-called conveyor belt stars that cannot sing and even worse Big Brother, Dieter Bohlen, Star Search, Fame Academy or Boy Groups! Who wants to set up quality music TV or Radio? - Tell us, we really do have some ideas and still hope its not too late!
