Hamburg Salsa

Imagine four days of non-stop Salsa in a relaxed and cosy atmosphere with people from all over the world sharing their passion for salsa dancing and music. We invite you to join this marathon for an amazing long weekend of Salsa in Hamburg with excellent music, beautiful venue, endless dancing and delicious food.  

All news regarding the Hamburg Salsa Marathon are being posted on their Facebook Page.

One of the many advantages of a salsa marathon: they are gender balanced. They absolutely want to ensure this at the HSM. Therefore, they can no longer give free spots to single followers. They can only offer them a place on the waiting list. However, followers can still register as ‘couples’ together with a leader.

Number of remaining free spots:

– 10 double spots for ‚couples’ (when followers register together with a leader)

– 18 spots for leaders


Located in the trendy and multi-cultural district Altona, the beautiful Tangostudio El Abrazo (meaning ‘the hug’!) and its atmospheric ambiance is the perfect space for this unforgettable event. ‘el abrazo’ consists of a large dancehall (300 sqm) with a perfect wooden floor, awesome well-balanced acoustics and atmospheric lighting. Right next to it you will find the dining room with a lavish buffet.

The pre-party, the after-party and the new years eve party will be at the dance studio Billies, just 100 meters away from the El Abrazo (across the the street from the NH Hotel Altona). This studio has two beautiful bright dance halls (140 and 100 sqm) with excellent wooden dance floors and sound system.
