Do and see
Water gives life. People find proximity to water in Hamburg like nowhere else. The city on the water is incomparable and has a unique character. Its maritime flair, fresh air, and Hanseatic cosmopolitanism make Hamburg the finest city in the world for many people. To discover it, embark from the Elbe landing stages (Landungsbrücken) on a round trip through the harbour and the historic Speicherstadt district. You will pass the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, the city’s new landmark under construction, and HafenCity, Europe’s largest urban development project.
Lake Alster
A 160-hectare lake right in the city centre, surrounded by cafés, parks and walks. There are sculptures both on land and in the lake. There are also an abundance of oak and chestnut trees for nature lovers. It is also possible to rent pedal and rowing boats.
The Harbour
Hamburg’s port is not simply a factor in the economy but, being so centrally located, it is also the city’s greatest tourist attraction. Located on the waterfront, since 1703 every Sunday morning virtually anything not nailed down firmly has been traded at Hamburg’s most traditional market. A popular option for early risers, night clubbers, bargain hunters and tourists alike is the brunch in the historic fish auction hall to the tunes of jazz, pop or rock music.
The Reeperbahn
The Reeperbahn is a living legend: in the old days it was a seedy red-light quarter for seafarers, during the 1960s it was a stepping stone for the Beatles. Since the 1990s the red-light district has been gradually transformed into a unique entertainment district with bars and clubs, art galleries, cabarets, theatres and top-class restaurants. The Reeperbahn, almost 1 kilometre long, is a “must” on the tourist route as well as Grosse Freiheit, the Davidwache police station or the Spielbudenplatz with its Panoptikum waxworks and Operettenhaus.
Hamburg Museum
The Hamburg Museum hosts one of Germany’s largest urban history exhibitions. As a cultural history museum it displays the varied history of the city of Hamburg, from its beginnings in around 800 AD to now. It is the biggest museum within the Foundation of Historical Museums in Hamburg – complemented by the Altonaer Museum, focussing on maritime history, the Helms-Museum, specialising in archaeology, and the Museum of Work in Barmbek.
Hamburger Kunsthalle
Opened in 1869, and once the embodiment of the Hamburg bourgeoisie’s feeling for art, the Kunsthalle is now acknowledged as one of Germany’s leading art galleries. The adjacent Gallery of Contemporary Art opened in 1996 at its prominent location and complements its main collection with ambitious examples of contemporary art. Collections include the Old Masters, valuable 19th century prints and drawings, Classical Modernism, as well as contemporary art exhibitions in the Gallery of Contemporary Art.
Miniatur Wunderland - The world’s largest model railway
Miniatur Wunderland is the world´s largest model railway museum, one of Hamburg´s most popular family tourist attractions. It displays sections, showing authentic environment from different countries - Sweden and Norway to the pyramids of Egypt and Las Vegas in U.S. Visitors can even experience day and night – and all this every 15 minutes. You can also take a guided tour that shows Wunderland behind-the-scenes.
Park Planten un Blomen
Take a stroll around the famous park Planten un Blomen which is located in the heart of the city. This is a place where you can unwind and enjoy tropical plants, the largest Japanese garden in Europe and a rose garden. In the summer time, the park offers daily theater performances for the children.
Hagenbeck – the wild side of Hamburg
In Hamburg there isn’t a zoo – there is Hagenbeck. In a park of 19 hectares you can find more than 1860 animals from all over the world including Germany’s only walrus family. Guests experience is an expedition round the equator. You can find more than 14.300 animals in 300 species.
