Glitz and glamour for banquets and galas

You have something to celebrate? Celebrate with us! Banquets and galas have been in good hands at the CCH – Congress Center Hamburg for many, many years. The CCH excels with experienced staff and unmatched, flexible halls. This is where you can find the city’s largest daylit event space and an impressive entrance hall to welcome guests in grand style. Not to forget the CCH’s privileged location right in the heart of Hamburg. Your guests will appreciate the short traveling distance!

Entrance hall

The first impression always counts. You know it the moment you walk into the daylight-flooded entrance hall which is shaped like an arching atrium: The interior design of the new CCH is unique and game-changing. With a ceiling height of up to 25 meters, the entrance hall is one of the architectural highlights of the complex that provides a perfect ambience for exquisite balls, award ceremonies or festive receptions. All parts of the building are accessible from here. Escalators and lifts provide barrier-free access to the East, Center and West vertical sections. Fixed stairs are also available for guests to proceed to the halls you have booked. So come and celebrate!

Hall 3

Want to organize a festive banquet, a ball, a gala dinner with a grand stage, or a cocktail event? Hall 3, steeped in tradition, is an elegant venue on the ground floor of the center section. Hamburg’s largest ballroom has undergone a rejuvenation recently. Among its truly exceptional features is the ceiling-mounted lighting arrangement which is under historic preservation protection. Its more than 1,000 custom-designed steel cylinder luminaires have been retrofitted with modern LED lamps. Hall 3 is equipped with advanced conference, stage, sound and projection systems.

What is more, the second largest hall at the CCH features a large permanent stage. Our in-house event production team has all the audio-visual, rigging, lighting, sound and stage technology expertise you could possibly want and will support your event from the planning stages until completion.
