Abstract: We characterize hypercyclic composition operators $ C_\varphi :f\mapsto f\circ \varphi $ on the space of holomorphic functions on a connected Stein manifold $ \Omega $ with $ \varphi $ being a holomorphic self-map of $ \Omega $.

In turns out that in the case when all balls with respect to the Carathéodory pseudodistance are relatively compact in $ \Omega $, a much simpler characterization may be obtained (many natural classes of domains in $ \mathbb{C}^N$ satisfy this condition). Moreover, we show that in such a class of manifolds, as well as in simply connected and infinitely connected planar domains, hypercyclicity of $ C_\varphi $ implies its hereditary hypercyclicity with respect to the full sequence of natural numbers.
