Rooms can be made smaller or larger, be subdivided or expanded.

"For customers who wish to book two or all three sections, the CCH offers truly grand opportunities,” Heike Mahmoud, Chief Operating Officer, CCH – Congress Center Hamburg, underscores. Hall 1, which is under historical preservation protection, is an ideal venue for seated events with several thousand visitors. With up to 3,000 seats, it is Hamburg's largest hall with permanent seating.
