The weekend is in Hamburg and will start at 16:00 Friday 26th July and end at 14:00 Sunday 28th July.


Bring a drinking vessel WE WILL NOT PROVIDE ONE! If you forget to bring one, you will have to provide your own. MERMAIDS are environmentally friendly and most hashers have enough stuff by now.


Also, bring your own lanyard if you need or want one.


Hamburg is TEMPERATE, and in July, this means it can be hot (30C) or cold (15C), wet or dry, so bring clothing to suit. If you are not sure what to bring, check the online weather forecast:




Registration starts at 16:00 at the pyjama park hotel (you can try earlier if we have our shit together)

Pub crawl is pay as you go with some free drinks thrown in. Party in the Reeperbahn or go to bed.


We have 4 runs on Saturday, all start at train station Hoheneichen, a 25 minute metro journey from the hotel


  • Ball Breaker approx 23km - this includes river, moor land, woodland and an incline ( be lucky you have an incline, this is Hamburg and the hare raiser worked extremely hard to find this small uphill), park

  • Long approx 14km - river, woodland, small allotment gardens, park

  • Medium approx 8km - river, scenic riverside view, park

  • Walk approx 4km - river and park


We aim to be back at the hotels by 16:00 on Saturday. This will give you some time to relax, freshen up, get into your Viking Mermaid in drag or flip-flop costumes, and party at the beach bar and Reeperbahn clubs. The party venue: (on the Elbe River, a short walk from the Reeperbahn and hotels)

Get up, have breakfast, nurse hangover with a bracing run (by the water and surrounded by seamen), circle, then go home.


At some point during the weekend, a vote for the next Interscandi will also be held.


Party theme: Viking Mermaid in drag or flip-flop

INTERSCANDI 2024 will take place in Hamburg on 26-28 July, in Hamburg's famous Altona district, close to the notorious Reeperbahn where many a Viking has woken up with a lot less money and an itchy crotch.

Let's just say that the MERMAIDS guarantee you will get to complain about insufficient prostitutes! But seriously, this is a neighbourhood with great partying opportunities, both excellent craft beer and the choicest of cheap beers, tasty wines, and restaurants for every budget and taste. It's where MERMAIDS party, and now you can too!
