OPEN MOUTH – Hamburg Food Festival

14. September, 2023 - 18. September, 2023


Hamburg presents itself as the culinary heart of Germany from 14 to 18 September 2023. The OPEN MOUTH Hamburg Food Festival is all about taste, tradition and innovation. But what exactly is behind this promising event? Join us on a culinary journey through the Hanseatic city.

A decentralised food festival

The whole of Hamburg becomes a stage when the “OPEN MOUTH – Hamburg Food Festival” takes place. This is not a conventional festival celebrated on a single site. Rather, over 200 programme points are spread across the entire city area and even beyond.

Bars, restaurants, farms and special places like the Oberhafenquartier are transformed into gastronomic hotspots where both locals and food tourists get their money’s worth.

“Good Food Dish – Good Drink – Good Action” in Hamburg’s restaurants

With this motto, around 50 hosts from Hamburg restaurants commit themselves to offering their guests special culinary experiences. Among them renowned chefs like Sebastian Junge and Julia Bode as well as institutions like the 100/200 restaurant or the ÜberQuell brewery. Likewise, renowned hotels and bars get involved with individual creations and events.

“Heartquarter” – The pulsating heart of the festival

The Oberhafenquartier is the central attraction of the festival. This is where the “Hamburg Beer Week” finds its home, and the Green Food Festival attracts visitors with a colourful marketplace. The “Heartquarter” of Erste Liebe Studios becomes the true heartbeat of the event and offers a variety of events, tastings and other attractions.

Decentralised events: More than just a festival

Numerous events are spread across the entire festival site. The Green Food Festival, the Hamburg Beer Week and many other events characterise the diverse programme of OPEN MOUTH Hamburg. Particularly noteworthy is the commitment to sustainability and regionality, which runs like a thread through the entire festival.

Voices on the OPEN MOUTH – Hamburg Food Festival

The enthusiasm for the festival is also evident in the voices of those involved. Michael Otremba from Hamburg Tourismus GmbH emphasises Hamburg’s position as a foodie city and compares it to world cities like Copenhagen and Lima. Other opinions, such as those of Patrick Rüther and Claudia Albert, underline the festival’s holistic and innovative approach.

OPEN MOUTH Hamburg sets new standards in the culinary world and establishes itself as a platform for regional producers, innovative restaurateurs and curious food enthusiasts. Those who want to be part of this unforgettable experience can find all further information at www.openmouth.hamburg.
