The new venue for culture in Hamburg

Hamburg’s wholesale market is the only one in the world to play host to a theatre. In close collaboration with the city of Hamburg, Mehr! Entertainment has created a theatre completely integrated with the wholesale market on a total of 6,000 m² spanning three levels. Since its opening in March 2015, the theatre has played host to musicals and shows of international standard besides global rock stars and pop music greats. The Mehr! Theater in the wholesale market is a visionary venue for live entertainment and Hamburg’s largest theatre with space for 3,500 guests. As a master of disguise, the theatre also offers flexible opportunities for sporting events and business functions. 

From the spring of 2020, the Mehr! Theater in the wholesale market will become the permanent venue for the theatre experience that has been showered with awards all round the world, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child. The theatre production will be produced in German for the first time and it will be staged exclusively in the Mehr! Theater in the wholesale market. From May 2019, the Hamburg venue will be elaborately redesigned for this exceptional theatrical experience. The official première is scheduled for spring 2020.

From acesulfame to sucroglycerides

In the EU, thousands of additives such as flavourings, enzymes, colouring and flavour enhancers can be use in food production. Many of them do not even need to be declared. Even with bioproducts, numerous additives are permitted. Without these additives, many types of food would not be available and others would be significantly more expensive.

The German Food Additives Museum founded by the Hamburg Food Foundation offers insights into the system of flavourings, enzymes, colouring and flavour enhancers used in the food industry. However, it also shows how you can do without additives and how you can create balanced alternatives.

You can find offers for courses and dates for events on the website of the Additives Museum.
