Hamburg, Germany’s biggest port city and its ‘gateway to the world’ is a hugely popular LGCT and GCL venue which attracted over 90 thousand people to its vast show ground in 2018 with to the world-class show jumping on offer.

 

At the Derby-Park Klein Flottbeck, families enjoy picnics in the countryside setting where the German Jumping and Dressage Derby has been held for decades. The first of the circuit's two events in Germany, Hamburg was the host of the prestigious stallion Casall ASK's retirement in 2017, made extra special with his exceptional Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix win.

 

Former years have also witnessed home hero and legend of the sport Ludger Beerbaum (GER) ride a stunning Grand Prix win to claim the gold in front of ecstatic crwds, as well as former World Number 1 Harrie Smolders (NED). We celebrate some of the best views of this stunning venue as well as the top sporting moments from the 2019 event in our new GC Destinations video - take a look here:
