Welcome to the
Übersee-Club Hamburg

Established with the goal of "fostering Hamburg's status in the world", the club has always been one of the historic city's focal points, a venue that attracts outstanding minds from the worlds of commerce, politics, culture and learning – a "talking gallery" to cite the famous banker Max M. Warburg's words at the association's founding assembly in 1922.


Since 1970 the Übersee Club has been located in the Amsinck House on the city's beautiful Neuer Jungfernstieg boulevard.

Dedication to promoting democracy, tolerance and open-mindedness: this sums up the philosophy of the Übersee Club. We'd like to invite you on a voyage through the history of our club. Learn about the lectures it hosts, the speakers, the Übersee Tag, our restaurant facilities, and our partner institutions around the globe. Welcome to the Übersee Club in the heart of the Hanseatic City of Hamburg!

Vorträge im Hamburger Übersee-Club

The talks and lectures programme represents the centrepiece of the Übersee Club activities. As a meeting place for influential thinkers, it provides a forum where members can share views and form their own opinions by engaging in dialogue. Several times a year the club invites leading figures from the worlds of commerce, politics, the arts and learning to give talks. The current programme can be found on our German website.

Every year on or around May 7 the club celebrates its Übersee Day, sustaining a tradition that dates back

to 1950.
The day commemorates Emperor Barbarossa's 1189 conferment of the City of Hamburg's right to operate

as a port.
