International Hanseatic Day

In the days of the medieval Hanseatic League, the Hanseatic cities met regularly at the Hanseatic Day. Trade issues were discussed there and joint decisions were made. The Union of Cities has taken up this tradition of the Hanseatic Days again with the "International Hanseatic Day of Modern Times".

Festival of international understanding

Every year a different Hanseatic city is host and invites you to celebrate tradition and international understanding. The world of the Hanseatic League comes alive at the Hanseatic Day in numerous activities, markets and exhibitions. Many Hanseatic cities are represented with their own stand at the Hanseatic Market. Here you can find out about travel offers and sample local specialities. Dance and music groups from the Hanseatic cities perform on stages or spontaneously on the next street corner, giving the Hanseatic Day a very special flair. And the decisions of THE HANSA are taken by the Hanseatic towns and cities, as in the past, in the annual Assembly of Delegates at the Hanseatic Day.
