Am Rothenbaum is the site of the main tennis court of the German Open Tennis Championships, played in the Harvestehude quarter of Hamburg, Germany. Though the site is called "Tennisstadion am Rothenbaum" (lit. Tennis Stadium at the Rothenbaum), it is today officially located in the Harvestehude quarter of Hamburg.
The International German Open has been played at the "Rothenbaum" since 1892, making it Germany's longest-running tennis tournament. The current stadium was built in 1999 and holds 13,300 spectators, making it Germany's largest tennis venue. Today, it is one of the only two tournaments on German soil to be part of the ATP World Tour 500 (the other being Halle Open), and one of the twenty largest tennis tournaments in the world.
