Hamburg is a responsive[1] WordPress theme with automated support for the shop plugins WooCommerce and WooCommerce German Market. In conjunction with those plugins, Hamburg has been tested by a lawyer and has been approved as law-compliant[2] for German jurisdiction.

Hamburg is not a framework, but a solid stand-alone theme with well-arranged options. Features have been deliberately held at a small number in order to ensure  high flexibility and adaptiveness. Adjustments and custom functions can be saved into a Child-Theme and thereby will be maintained during theme updates.


We have built Hamburg’s template structure atomically on purpose. That way, for smaller adjustments you will only need to edit smaller portions of source code. Template files are richly documented in code.


Hamburg’s support for WooCommerce and WooCommerce German Market launches automatically as soon as those plugins are activate on your site. Plugin-owned styles will be deactivated automatically as well. You might want to edit your product image sizes once.

Due to the richness of settings sported by such a complex e-commerce plugin as WooCommerce, it is almost impossible to feature appropriate visual styles for each and every possible combination of options. We have bestowed great care to cover a large variety of possible plugin configurations. Nonetheless, in some cases (like i.e. particular WooCommerce Extensions) you might have to add or edit portions of CSS to achieve the desired output.

[1] Responsiveness describes the capacity of a website layout to react to various devices and display website content accessibly even on small screens. Responsive webdesign experiences its limits where browser software fails to interprete contemporary HTML, CSS and Javascript as unfortunately is the case with some proprietary browsers.
[2] 100% legal security always co-depends on the content of a website; therefore theme Hamburg can offer no kind of warranty for legal security of your online shop.
