The KinderKinder-festival is our most important project. It is an annual event which takes place in many different theatres and venues in and around Hamburg and lasts for several weeks – usually from mid-September to mid-November.

Since 1991 KinderKinder is funded by the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. As part of the festival we invite the most adventurous music, the most inspiring theatre and the most exciting dance for children from all over the world. Please see our archive for all the productions we presented in the previous years.

Each year we are able to present the work of many different professional companies to the children of Hamburg and stage more than 50 performances, including productions for the very young, for more than 50.000 spectators – the majority attending our big outdoor opening event the »Weltkinderfest«.

There is no application form for touring companies. If you are interested in our festival please send us some information via email to including links to videos of your show. Preferable are shows that do not require language and are aimed at audiences under the age of 12.

Almost every year KinderKinder also produces its own shows for children with wonderful artists. Many of these are international co-productions which explore the productive meeting of music with other forms of art. All of KinderKinder’s shows are staged at our own festival, some traveled to a number of European countries, and a few of them even made it as far as India and China! See the overview and trailers here.

We would be glad to welcome you as our guest in Hamburg and help you with recommendations of must-see productions and accommodations etc.. But notice: Our festival is stretched very long over several weeks, so we are only presenting one or two different productions each weekend. Please refer to our homepage for more information about the detailed program, which we will publish each summer.
