If you want to hit some specialty shops and exquisite stores in Hamburg, your first stop should be Mönckebergstrasse. It is one of the city’s main shopping streets near the historic City Hall and the central station. Thousands of visitors and locals stroll through the street every day, but it never gets too crowded.

Don’t forget to stop by one of the many cafés along the broad avenue. You can rest your feet and drink a glass of beer or a cup of cappuccino while watching people walk by the area.

Jungfernstieg

Jungfernstieg is the best Hamburg shopping street if you want to combine shopping and sightseeing. It offers a spectacular waterfront view and is known for fun boat trips and scenic cruises across the lake.

Nestled on the banks of Alster Lake, this gracious promenade offers elegant shopping in the city center.

Neuer Wall’s luxurious atmosphere perfectly matches the elegant stores and exclusive shops that call it home. Some of the most high-end boutiques and famous international designers at the shopping mile include Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Escada, St. Emile , and Jil Sander. World-class accessories and watch collections at Cartier are also available, as well as pens at Montblanc and colorful jewelry at Frey Wille.

A unique shopping experience awaits you at Colonnaden, a historic shopping street in the city center. It is stylish and known for its Mediterranean flavor, highlighted by lively terraces that will remind you of the coziness of lovely Mediterranean places. The stately multi-leveled homes built around 1880 will also catch your attention as you stroll through the pedestrian zone.

The shops along the street are often independently run and small in size. But don’t let their size fool you. Those retail outlets and small boutiques offer luxury items and quality specialty products. For instance, the shoe salon Crossford’s offers handcrafted shoes made from exquisite leather, and Nana Hellwege sells the best jewelry pieces and accessories.

Karoviertel

 If you’re a fan of vintage fashion and second-hand items, Karoviertel is the place for you. It’s a small area with narrow streets lined with cafes, bars, and hip boutiques. It was a run-down neighborhood between the 1980s and 1990s where working-class residents and students lived in poorly-maintained Art Nouveau homes or the Bambue trailer park.

Today, the area boasts exciting nightlife, music, and a relaxed shopping scene. You can browse second-hand stores and designer shops like Herr von Eden, Goldig, the Vintage Gallery, and Maison Suneve along Markstrasse in the Karoviertel district. There are also multiple record stores, including the Groove City on Feldstrasse. This and other trendy indie record labels in the area help build Hamburg’s reputation as a music lover destination in Germany.

Sternschanze

Also referred to as Schanze, Sternschanze is a famous district notable for its old buildings with green courtyards and a particular shabby style. It has numerous restaurants, artisanal breweries, and bars to cater to every taste, and local designers showing off their excellent products. Thanks to its central location and cozy atmosphere, it attracts a cheerful crowd of young people who choose to live here.

For a long time, the quarter has been considered the city’s counter-cultural center. It was a distinctly working-class neighborhood until a surge of gentrification forced the original residents to leave as the rent sharply increased in the area. It is now known for its cultural and political events and fantastic shopping opportunities. You can check out the small shops and unique boutiques with contemporary art and remarkable interior ideas that might inspire you to try something different.

Nicknamed ‘Little Paris,’ Ottensen is Hamburg’s major shopping street with little bars, cafes, and narrow alleys. Like the Schanze, it was a working-class area but is now one of the city’s most famous quarters. Architecture lovers will admire the historic buildings in the alleys, while shoppers will enjoy browsing the little boutiques and independent shops instead of chain stores.

The neighborhood offers plenty of treasures at interior design shops, concept and stationery stores, and owner-managed shopping outlets. You can also find Danish fashion brands like Becksöndergaard and international labels like H&M, gift shops, and small shopping malls near the Altona train station. It’s also the base for the Altonale street festival, which combines live music, parties, arts, theater performances, and flea markets.

Barbecues under way at the Outer Alster, Hamburg.

A local's guide to Hamburg: 10 top tips

With buzzy cafes, plenty of green space, music venues, fashion and football, there’s more to the Beatles’ favourite German city than the Reeperbahn

Beer and boating

Our historic port city is defined by its waterways: the mighty Elbe River, a maze of canals around the warehouses of the Unesco-listed Speicherstadt neighbourhood , and above all the giant lake, the Outer Alster , formed by the Alster River. The best time to discover Alster is on a Saturday or Sunday morning, when Hamburgers set out to hike, walk the dog, jog, bike or skateboard around the lake. Renting a bike and doing a round trip is fun, but nothing beats hiring a canoe or a rowing boat. From the north of the lake, you can steer your vessel into narrow canals, get a bit lost and grab a beer at places such as Cafe Canale , where they pass trays out to your boat like a fast-food drive-thru. Just take care not to fall in when a dozen canoes are trying to get served at once. Boat hire from €20 an hour , barca-hamburg.de

Collectible fashion

Mojo clothes store in Hamburg

In a quiet side street of the hipster Schanze neighbourhood, in between funky restaurants, vintage stores and design studios, is the minimalist fashion boutique Mojo . Minimalist is the perfect word to describe the collections of these young Hamburg stylists, as each item is limited to an edition of 100 – an instant collectible – be it beanie or baseball cap, T-shirt or hoodie. And you won’t find them on sale in any other shop – only in the flagship one here in Schanze or online. Prices are not cheap – T-shirts from €25, hooded sweats from €70 – but each new edition sells out quickly. Just down the street is the legendary all-night truckers’ canteen, Erika’s Eck – worth dropping in for a mammoth wiener schnitzel – and Mojo has created a range just for them. A very Hamburg souvenir to take home. Kampstrasse 11, mojostore.de

Cake and chat

Cafe Gnosa on Lange Reihe Street.

When I arrived in Hamburg, I lived in the St Georg neighbourhood and Café Gnosa , my first local cafe, is a place I love going back to. People always talk to you in here when you sit down, whether you want them to or not. This is a bakery and the cakes are out of this world, perfect for what all Germans love – kaffee und kuchen . St Georg is one of the more gentrified quarters of the city, a favourite LGBTQ+ haunt, and the rainbow flag proudly flies outside the cafe. And just 10 minutes’ walk away is the Kunsthalle , the fine arts museum. Lange Reihe 93, on Facebook

Village in the city

The Chug Club Karte

My home is in the St Pauli district, where I do a Beatles tour of the clubs they started out in, and I would not live anywhere else in the city. Although gentrification is creeping in, there is still a grittiness to this working-class, seamen’s quarter, and while tourists may identify it with the red-light Reeperbahn, this is actually a tolerant, friendly village where everyone knows each other. Start off at my local cafe, Kandie Shop , where friends catch up on gossip and politics over great coffee, waffles and vegan cakes. For dinner, Krug has a warm, gemütlich atmosphere, serving hearty dishes from the south of Germany, and then it’s on for cocktails at the Chug Club , where owner Betty Kupsa stocks 400 tequilas and mezcals. And if you are in town when St Pauli FC play at home, grab a ticket. They are our very own social club, as well as a football team.

Cycle to an island

old waterside building Kaltehofe

The island of Kaltehofe (connected to the mainland by a bridge) in the north branch of the Elbe offers unspoiled countryside in the city centre, and few visitors know about it. After a cholera outbreak at the end of the 19th century, Kaltehofe was where Hamburg’s water was purified – filtered through sand in a series of basins. In 1990, the island was abandoned and made off-limits, left to grow wild, but today it has been transformed into a wetlands reserve. It is ideal for cycling to for a picnic or birdwatching, following a bike path through the docks and along river dykes, or the 503 bus takes you direct to the original Wasserkunst waterworks , with exhibitions and a restaurant. On the landward side of the bridge is the perfect spot for a sunset drink, the golden pavilion of Entenwerder 1 cafe, on a pontoon on the Elbe.

Michelle, ma belle

Michelle records in Hamburg

The vinyl record scene is booming in Hamburg, hardly surprising given the vibrant DJ clubbing scene. Each neighbourhood has its specialist stores but nothing beats the venerable Michelle , a big and beautiful record shop in a quiet side street just off the department stores lining Mönckebergstrasse, the city’s main shopping street. Musicians love Michelle because the staff are so friendly and knowledgeable. It stocks about 30,000 records, from hip-hop and indie to jazz, funk, electro and techno, but you have to come in and browse as it doesn’t sell on the internet. Check Michelle’s Facebook page for its monthly gig, with a band of the moment performing live in the shop window. Gertrudenkirchhof 10, on Facebook

Chic French cafe

Cafe Paris interior Altstadt old town Hamburg

Café Paris is the most beautiful venue in Hamburg, no question, and every time you go it feels like a special occasion. The 1882 salon is so romantic, with art-deco tiles and a beautiful ceiling fresco. Yes, everything is French – from café au lait and croissants for breakfast, a bubbly glass of crémant for an aperitif, to its signature steak-frites and beef tartare – but the people of Hamburg love it, and it is their favourite place to be seen. For a real slice of local life, come on a Friday lunchtime when it opens Kantine, a no-reservation self-service diner of long communal tables, two floors above the cafe, with the same plat du jour (€14.50) as in the chic brasserie downstairs. Rathausstrasse 4, cafeparis.net

Worth a trawl

Sunday morning Fischmarkt on the bank of the Elbe, Hamburg

You can’t come for a weekend in Hamburg and miss the Sunday morning Fischmarkt on the bank of the Elbe. Following a tradition that began in 1703, the church allows fishermen to sell their catch up to 9.30am on a Sunday, so you need to get up early or more likely, given the nearby Reeperbahn’s electric Saturday nightlife, not bother going to bed. The 100-plus stallholders scream out their wares, everyone feasts on our favourite fischbrötchen – rolls stuffed with anything from shrimps to herrings and salmon – then, at the end, the massive auction hall is crowded with partygoers as live bands get the crowds dancing to cover versions of Sweet Caroline, Johnny B Goode and, of course, the Beatles’ Get Back.

Dockers’ canteen

Germany, Hamburg, listed building Oberhafenkantine at night

A tiny chalet sits in the shadow of the crisscross girders of a railway bridge, leaning dangerously like the tower of Pisa. Built a century ago when this was the heart of Hamburg’s busy port area, Oberhafenkantine is the last genuine dockers’ canteen. And it is the place to try Hamburg cuisine: green cabbage with pork chop and wurstel ; marinated salmon; slow-cooked veal cheek with kartoffelsalat (mains from €12). The one dish I tell everyone to try is the traditional sailor’s recipe labskaus . Created to last long sea voyages, it’s a strange but tasty mix of mashed potatoes, corned beef and beetroot, served with a gherkin, pickled herring and fried quail’s egg on top. Although this area looks like an industrial wasteland, the once-abandoned warehouses have actually been transformed into a thriving cultural hub, hosting concerts, theatre, art installations and exhibitions. Stockmeyerstrasse 39, oberhafenkantine-hamburg.de

Music to your ears

Elbphilharmonie

For me, as a musician and music lover, Hamburg is one of Europe’s top cities for live entertainment. The clubs the Beatles first played in, the cult Indra and Kaiserkeller , are still going strong and are a dream venue for any up-and-coming band. On the Reeperbahn, Molotow specialises in punk and indie rock, while at Mojo (not to be confused with the fashion boutique, above) there is everything from jazz and funk to roller-disco nights. And since the state-of-the-art Elbphilharmonie concert hall opened three years ago, the city is attracting top classical conductors and musicians. Attending a performance is a memorable experience, and the futuristic building looks like a spaceship.

Getting there Take a ferry from Harwich to Hook of Holland or Newcastle to Amsterdam, then train; or Eurostar from St Pancras via Brussels and Cologne.

When to go The Come Together festival will now take place on 15 & 16 August 2020. In addition, a Beatles Anniversary-Party with concert will take place on 17 August at Indra Club.

Noisy bargain hunting on Fish Market

tourist info hamburg shop

Shouting in strong Hamburg accents, the weathered vendors of Hamburg’s Sunday morning Fish Market are an attraction in their own right. But visitors can bag serious bargains in this Hamburg institution, too. Haggle for a portion of fresh local catch, flowers or large fruit baskets. Those who do not want to get up early should book a hotel close to the fish market , as it starts already at 5 o'clock.

Location: Grosse Elbstrasse 9, 22767 Hamburg, Germany

All of Europe at the Europa Passage

Try Italian shoes or Spanish jewelry before settling with some Danish ice cream at Hamburg’s Europa Passage. Located between Jungfernstieg and Mönckebergstrasse, the modern mall unites 120 shops under its roof. From atop, visitors have great views of the fountains and small boats of Alster Lake.

Location: Ballindamm 40, 20095 Hamburg, Germany

Promenading along Jungfernstieg

Hip local fashion designers have set up stall in the tiny Karoviertel neighborhood, sandwiched between Hamburg’s trade fair and Heiligengeistfeld.

Where to stay in Hamburg

25HOURS HOTEL

Paul-Dessau-Strasse 2, Hamburg (00 49 40 855070; www.25hours-hotels.com/hamburg). Why miss out on Living Divani daybeds, Brionvega televisions and special-edition Sixties-style lamps by Flos? You can have it all here, although you will have to do without room service, mini-bars and toiletries. The curved walls of the mirrored reception flow between the Esszimmer bar/restaurant and a multi-functional 'Wohnzimmer', or living room, with an open fire. Lighting allows for mood changes throughout the day: brighter for breakfast, darker for the evening. The bedrooms are mainly white, with cushions and throws in pale blues and greens, matching the Seventies-style patterned wallpaper. The bespoke bedroom and bathroom furniture, in white MDF, is mixed with string curtains beneath bare concrete ceilings. 25hours was featured in The Hot List 2004. £

ATLANTIC KEMPINSKI

An der Alster 72-79, Hamburg (00 49 40 288 8817; www.kempinski.atlantic.de ). Overlooking the Alster, the city's huge city-centre lake, the Atlantic Kempinski is located just a few minutes' walk from the exhibitions at the Kunsthalle (see What to See ). Its ambience is pleasantly old-fashioned and palatial: it was built for first-class ocean liner passengers departing for the USA. The 252 rooms and suites are traditionally furnished in an elegant, understated style, and the restaurant serves modern continental cuisine from pioneering chef Sven Buttner. Service friendly and efficient, but the buffet breakfast is a bit pricey at €33. ££

Simon-von-Utrecht-Strasse 31, Hamburg (00 49 40 309930; www.east-hamburg.com ). East is in a former steel foundry in Pauli, on the edgier side of Hamburg near the Reeperbahn. It is the first hotel from the restaurant-bar group Gastro Consulting, and the emphasis is very much on the Asian-fusion food, Asian-influenced cocktails (in Yakshi's Bar) and partying. The bedrooms are on five floors named, colour-coded and scented after oriental spices and flowers, and are categorised from S to XXL. The decor is a tour de force for the hotel's Chicago-based architect and designer, Jordan Mozer, who has fashioned curvaceous headboards out of resin to resemble oversized wing-back chairs and placed polished cast-aluminium sculptural basins centre stage between the bed and the open-plan bathrooms. The spa on the top floor has an unusual urban terrace looking on to the bold mosaics and curvilinear wood trim of the sauna. East was featured in The Hot List 2005. ££

EMPIRE RIVERSIDE HOTEL

Bernhard-Nocht-Strasse 91, Hamburg (00 49 40 311190; www.empire-riverside.de ). A brand new hotel built on the site of an old brewery, the contemporary Empire Riverside Hotel is located between the River Elbe and the Reeperbahn. Designed by British architect David Chippenfield, it is housed in a spectacular skyscraper that is sunlit and spacious. The 328 bedrooms include 12 junior suites and are decorated in a stark, modern style; 85 per cent have river views. The fine international restaurant serves dishes from Spain, Japan and Cuba, and the popular penthouse bar is great for cocktails. ££

FAIRMONT HOTEL VIER JAHRESZEITEN

Neuer Jungfernstieg 9-14, Hamburg (00 49 40 34940; www.hvj.de ). An impeccably maintained hotel dating from 1897, with stunning public areas full of marble, tapestries and chandeliers. There are 156 rooms and suites on five floors: the good-sized, individually furnished rooms are traditional without being fusty. Restaurants include the Michelin-starred Restaurant Haerlin, Art Deco Jahreszeiten Grill, Euro-Asian Doc Cheng's and the elegant Café Condi. The spa offers European and Asian treatments, including hot-stone massage. £££

GARDEN HOTEL

Magdalenenstrasse 60, Hamburg (00 49 40 414040; www.gardenhotels.de ). Three white Edwardian villas form a smart, quiet hotel in the leafy, chi-chi district of Pöseldorf. Epic breakfasts but no restaurant. £

Beim Alten Gaswerk 3, Daimlerstrasse, Hamburg (00 49 40 890620; www.gastwerk.com ). This Design Hotel masterpiece of industrial chic is located in a Victorian gasworks in Ottensen, a half-dozen S-bahn stops from the city centre. There are 141 spacious rooms, including 14 suites and 46 lofts. ££

HOTEL ABTEI

Abteistrasse 14, Hamburg (00 49 40 442 905; www.abtei-hotel.de ). A refurbished Grunderzeit (late-19th-century) villa with a grand staircase, smoky mirrors, candelabra, paintings and grandfather clocks. There are 11 rooms and suites, most with a terrace or conservatory. There is a pretty garden where breakfast is served in the summer. The locally renowned Prinz Frederik restaurant serves nouvelle cuisine ; breakfast is served in the basement café or the garden in summer. £££

LE ROYAL MERIDIEN

An der Alster 52-56, Hamburg (00 49 40 21000; www.starwoodhotels.com ). The glass-and-steel façade sets the tone for this contemporary business hotel, with high-speed Internet access in every room. 284 bright, colour-coordinated rooms (blue, pink, green or red) and suites are arranged on eight floors. The restaurant Le Ciel on the ninth floor has a Mediterranean menu and great views but lacks atmosphere. Most of the rooms have panoramic views of the Alster. Make sure you request one. ££

LOUIS C JACOB

Elbchaussee 401-403 Hamburg (00 49 40 822550; www.hotel-jacob.de ). Overlooking the River Elbe on the Elbchausee, Hamburg's grandest boulevard, Louis C Jacob is near the pretty village of Blankenese. It was built in 1791 and, despite a recent update and tasteful renovations, the style remains timeless and discreet. The hotel has 85 rooms, including 19 suites; the wood-panelled walk-in dressing rooms are a particular delight. German chef Thomas Martin combines traditional local ingredients with French cuisine at the popular restaurant, and the hotel has an impressive art collection. ££££

PARK HYATT HAMBURG

Bugenhagenstrasse 8, Hamburg (00 49 40 3332 1234; hamburg.park.hyatt.com ). The Park Hyatt is located on the top seven floors of an Art Deco warehouse, refurbished with acres of cherry wood, and is popular with media types. There are 252 rooms and suites and 30 apartments. Apples restaurant serves Mediterranean fare, the Park Lounge is for traditional high tea and there is 24-hour room service. This is a business hotel with a leisurely vibe: a great cocktail bar and Hamburg's biggest swimming pool. ££

The 'wellness' area comprises a swimming pool, sauna, aromatherapy steam room, gym, solarium and massage/treatment room.

Where to eat out in Hamburg

Neuer Jungfernstieg 9-14, Hamburg (00 49 40 34940; www.hvj.de ). This decidedly gemutlich café in the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten is the place to go for a filling breakfast and sumptuous cakes. Read more about the hotel in Where to Stay .

RESTAURANTS

DAS FEUERSCHIFF

City Sporthafen, Vorsetzen, Hamburg (00 49 40 362 553; www.das-feuerschiff.de ). Das Feuerschiff is a bar and restaurant on a converted Channel lightship moored near the Free Port. Watch the river traffic pass by over a bowl of fish soup washed down with good Bavarian Weissbier.

EAST RESTAURANT

Simon-von-Utrecht-Strasse 31, Hamburg (00 49 40 309933; www.east-hamburg.com ). The flamboyant restaurant at East hotel has soaring ceilings and huge sculptural pillars, and is overlooked by a two-tier bar that juts into the space like a Dalíesque cartoon. The menu features Euro-Asian dishes such as tuna tartar with avocado and crispy lotus roots, and springbok medallions on a chickpea ragout with pandan jus. Late at night, DJs are installed in the bar and the entire space becomes an enormous club. Read about East hotel in Where to Stay .

FISCHEREIHAFEN

Grosse Elbstrasse 143, Hamburg (00 49 40 381 816; www.fischereihafenrestaurant.de ). On a sunny day, a table overlooking the River Elbe can offer an alfresco experience as good as any in southern Europe. Located in a converted warehouse in the former fishing port, this restaurant serves up fine seafood to the burghers of Hamburg, who like to dine on the outside terrace, weather permitting, and watch the container ships glide gracefully past. Try the excellent fresh fish (especially codling and flounder), cured herrings and smoked eel. Start your meal with a dozen oysters from the very popular oyster bar.

FISCHERHAUS

St Pauli Fischmarkt 14, Hamburg (00 49 40 314 053; www.restaurant-fischerhaus.de ). A popular old place packed with families in their best knitwear, the Fischerhaus scores highly for its mighty helpings of no-frills local food (pickled herrings, fried plaice with sautéed potatoes and Labskaus: beef, herrings, potato and beetroot), friendly service and the fact that you won't find anywhere like it outside Germany.

Neuer Pferdemarkt 6, Hamburg (00 49 40 439 7823; www.restaurant-nil.de ). Fashionable bar and restaurant in a converted shoe shop. The food - potato soup with white truffles, venison with baby turnips and potato cakes - is smartly executed and the wine list seems designed to convince sceptics that not all German whites are sweet. Booking is advised for dinner.

RESTAURANT HAERLIN

Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, Neuer Jungfernstieg 9-14, Hamburg (00 49 40 34 943310; www.hvj.de ). Michelin-starred restaurant at the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten.

Van der Smissenstrasse 1, Hamburg (00 49 40 380 5919; www.rive-hamburg.de ). Trendy oyster bar and fish restaurant with a menu that mixes local favourites with Mediterranean flavours. Its location, halfway up an extraordinary glass-and-steel building, offers commanding views of the harbour.

19 Top-Rated Attractions & Things to Do in Hamburg

Written by Bryan Dearsley Updated Dec 27, 2023 We may earn a commission from affiliate links ( )

Hamburg, the largest city in Germany after the capital of Berlin , lies at the head of the long funnel-shaped estuary of the River Elbe. Its location makes it an important link between the sea and Germany's network of inland waterways and numerous islands.

The city is best known for its famous harbor area, the Port of Hamburg. In addition to being a major transportation hub, Hamburg has become one of Europe's most important cultural and commercial centers, as well as a major tourist destination.

The only part of old Hamburg to survive centuries of fires and wars, the narrow, curving Deichstrasse gives a sense of the city's past. Built long before the 19th-century warehouses and 21st-century harborside complexes, the street offers a glimpse into the city's Hansa past. The Hanseatic League was a medieval association of independent port cities and merchants along the Baltic and north Atlantic from the 11th to the 18th centuries, and even into the 19th century. Its distinct architecture is found throughout Baltic Germany.

Deichstrasse takes you straight onto a bridge over one of the city's many canals. Massive brick warehouses, built a couple of centuries after the Hansa's power faded, form a canyon along the canal's sides.

A second footbridge leads into the hottest new neighborhood, Hafencity, where old and new mix in a striking blend of 19th-century, neo-Hansa brick, with contemporary steel-and-glass apartments, their balconies jutting out over attractive cafés, eye-to-eye with vintage sailing vessels. Many of the most interesting things to do in Hamburg are in this port area.

To help you find the best places to visit in this important German port city, be sure to refer to our list of the top attractions and things to do in Hamburg.

The Water Castle in the Speicherstadt, Hamburg

The Port of Hamburg, the Hamburger Hafen – also known as "HafenCity" – encompasses 100 square kilometers of tidal harbor and is known as the Gateway to Germany. It's also where you'll find many of the city's most-visited tourist attractions, and on summer evenings and weekends, it's full of local residents relaxing.

A lovely pedestrian trail takes in the old 19th-century Warehouse District , the Speicherstadt , with its continuous lines of tall brick buildings once used to store tobacco, coffee, dried fruit, and spices. Built up from 1883 to 1927, it's reputedly the world's largest such warehouse district and was in 2015 designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site .

Another landmark of the Port of Hamburg is the Köhlbrandbrücke , a 3.9-kilometer bridge that spans the harbor. The newest and most spectacular addition to the waterfront area, though, is the Elbphilharmonie , the city's most important cultural venue (see more on this attraction in #3 below).

The adjacent Traditionsschiffhafen/Sandtorhafen harbor lines the peninsula and is a great place to see vintage tall ships at their docks. If you've got time, a good way to explore the Port of Hamburg is by boat, with numerous tours departing from Landungsbrücken.

Miniatur Wunderland

Although billed as the world's largest model railway, Hamburg's Miniatur Wunderland is really much more than simply a toy train layout. This is definitely one of the best places to visit in the city's historic Speicherstadt warehouse district. It's the world's largest model railway, boasting more than 15,400 meters of track and 1,040 trains (so expect to spend plenty of time here, especially if you're traveling with kids).

Built on a truly massive scale, the attraction covers an impressive 2,300 square meters. Highlights include areas dedicated to the USA, Scandinavia, and Germany, as well as an airport with planes that actually take off, plus some 100,000 vehicles that actually move, all of it illuminated by more than 500,000 lights and containing some 400,000 tiny (and unique) human figures.

As this is one of the most visited attractions in Germany, you can avoid a long wait by reserving your ticket online. Fun, behind-the-scenes guided tours are available and are highly recommended. Dining and snacks are available on-site, including a restaurant for the kids.

The magnificent Elbphilharmonie

Known locally as "Elphi," the imposing Elbphilharmonie (Elbe Philharmonic Hall) is the crown jewel of the revitalized Port of Hamburg. Located at the point of the Grasbrook peninsula, this new building has become the city's major landmark, and is considered one of the largest - and most acoustically pleasing - concert halls in the world.

Opened to great fanfare in 2017, its base consists of a 1960s-era, six-story-tall former cocoa, tea, and tobacco warehouse built of red brick. Above this rises an additional 20 stories of curved, shining glass.

The largest of its three concert halls seats 2,150 and features 10,000 plates specially designed to tune sound waves. The building is also home to a major hotel, residential apartments, restaurants, and other features, including parking. A publicly accessible observation platform, the Elbphilharmonie Plaza provides splendid views of the harbor and the city.

Classical music fans should also plan on an evening at the Hamburg State Opera (Staatsoper Hamburg). This state-of-the-art facility is much admired for its rich program of opera and its excellent acoustics.

Hamburger Kunsthalle

Occupying three separate but connected buildings on the Glockengießerwall, Hamburger Kunsthalle – literally translated as the "Hamburg Art Hall" – is one of Germany's top art galleries. Highlights include numerous altarpieces, works by local artists of the 14th century, and Dutch masters of the 16th and 17th centuries.

Also of note are its fine collections of 19th-century German and French paintings, plus substantial modern and contemporary art collections. Tours and fun programs for children are available.

Another notable art collection is housed at the Deichtorhallen , one of the largest galleries of contemporary art and photography in Europe.

Address: Glockengießerwall 1, D-20095 Hamburg

Official site: www.hamburger-kunsthalle.de

Hamburger Rathaus (City Hall)

In the center of Hamburg's Rathausmarkt stands the majestic City Hall, or Rathaus. This large, elaborately decorated Neo-Renaissance building adjacent to the Stock Exchange (Börse) was completed in 1897 and consists of 647 rooms, many opened to the public for the city's annual Long Night of Museums event.

Notable features include the spectacular painted ceiling in the Kaisersaal, which depicts the importance of German merchant shipping. Guided tours are available, as are opportunities to observe the local government in action.

From the Rathaus, the wide Mönckebergstraße, Hamburg's principal shopping and business district, leads past 14th-century St. Peter's Church , a cathedral and fine example of brick Hansa architecture notable for its 133-meter bell tower.

A column in the south part of the church bears a painting called Christmas 1813 , commemorating citizens who were locked in the church that year for refusal to provide food to Napoleon's troops. Continue on Mönckebergstraße all the way to the Central Station and the Schauspielhaus theater.

Address: Rathausmarkt 1, 20095 Hamburg

St. Michael's Church

The most famous of Hamburg's many churches, St. Michael's (Hauptkirche Sankt Michaelis) was built in the Baroque style between 1750 and 1762 and is one of the city's most important landmarks.

One of the top things to do when visiting this catholic church is to ascend its 132-meter-high tower, known locally as "Michel." Accessible by stairs and an elevator, the tower's viewing platforms offer excellent panoramic views over the city and port, a particular treat during their regular extended evening openings.

Also, be sure to look out for the stunning bronze statue of Archangel Michael killing the devil, a fascinating piece of artwork that can be seen over the entrance. Also of note is the church's crypt, the final resting place of some 2,425 people, and one of the city's most interesting concert venues.

In a courtyard to the east of the church are the Krameramtswohnungen . These dwellings were originally built to house the widows of members of the local Shopkeepers' Guild. There's also a good museum here.

Address: Englische Planke 1, 20459 Hamburg

Rickmer Rickmers and Cap San Diego

Berthed along the river at Landungsbrücken, Rickmer Rickmers is a three-masted tall ship with a long and colorful history. Built in 1896, the ship returned to Hamburg in 1983 and, after four years of restoration, is now a museum focused on the role of the merchant marine in the 19th and early 20th centuries (there's even a restaurant onboard).

The MS Cap San Diego , a 1960s cargo ship, is another merchant marine ship museum with visitor access to the entire vessel, from the bridge to the engine rooms (fun overnight stays are also available).

A different view of the Cold War is available in the former Soviet submarine , B-515 , now open as a museum and docked at St. Pauli Fischmarkt 10. For those interested in maritime-themed art, a visit to the Altonaer Museum is well worthwhile, and features numerous important paintings, sculptures, and cultural artifacts related to shipping.

Address: Bei den St. Pauli-Landungsbrücken 1a, 20359 Hamburg

International Maritime Museum

The International Maritime Museum (Internationales Maritimes Museum Hamburg, or IMMH) is a great place to discover more about Hamburg's rich maritime history and all things sea-related.

Housed in the city's oldest warehouse, a massive red-brick heritage building in the HafenCity area, the museum's fascinating exhibits cover more than 3,000 years of human connection to water. The oldest artifact displayed is a dugout boat, hollowed out of a tree trunk thousands of years ago, that was recovered from the Elbe.

Models show how shipping has progressed, from Phoenician galleys to Viking long ships to the caravels of the Golden Age of Discovery. An entire floor (there are 10 all told) is devoted to the latest in marine research, with films taken by diving robots and recordings of undersea sounds. Another gallery is filled with maritime art.

The newest addition is a superb ship simulator, which allows you to try your hand steering a container ship. A variety of tours and workshops are available, and there is a great little bistro here called, aptly, "Catch of the Day."

Alster Lakes

The focal points of Hamburg's inner city area are the Inner Alster (Binnenalster) and Outer Alster (Aussenalster), two artificial lakes connected to the rivers Alster and the Elbe. It's here you'll find Hamburg's most picturesque city squares and historic avenues, as well as its famous pedestrian areas, the passagens . The best routes take in the elegant Jungfernstieg with its cafés and landing stages used by tour boats, and the Ballindamm , with the city's largest shopping center.

The lakes are also popular for sailing and kayaking in summer and skating in winter, and are lined by many beautiful parks and gardens. The area is also popular among cyclists.

Also popular is the Pöseldorf area, with its galleries, boutiques, and cafés, along with the canals, or "fleetes," which link the lakes with the Elbe. If you're visiting in late summer, be sure to attend the annual Alstervergnügen , a street fair held around the lakes with great entertainment, including numerous concerts.

Museum of Arts and Crafts

Hamburg's Museum of Art and Design (Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg, or locally as "MKG"), located handily near the train station, ranks alongside the Bavarian National Museum in Munich as one of the country's most comprehensive displays of German, European, and Asian applied art.

Founded in 1874 and modeled after London's Victoria and Albert Museum, it's particularly well known for its displays of china, furniture, and silver from northern Germany. Other collections include applied art from East Asia, and a collection of works by Oskar Kokoschka. Also of interest is a large collection of keyboard instruments, as well as a fine display of porcelain. English-language guided tours are available, and a restaurant and bookshop are located on the premises.

The Hamburg Museum (Museum für Hamburgische Geschichte) will also be of interest to museum goers. Dating back to the 1830s, the museum is home to a large collection of artifacts that, together with their accompanying displays and information, offer a detailed look at life in the city over the centuries.

Ohlsdorf Cemetery

Not only is Ohlsdorf Cemetery (Ohlsdorfer Friedhof) the world's largest rural cemetery, it's one of the most important. Covering 961 acres and boasting 12 chapels, more than 1.5 million burials have taken place here in some 280,000 burial sites.

The cemetery is also where you'll find the Hamburg Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery , where more than 400 allied prisoners-of-war are buried, along with many who died in battles on German soil. Other notable memorials include those dedicated to victims of Nazi persecution, the Hamburg Firestorm of WWII, and members of the city's anti-Nazi resistance.

Don't be put off by the fact that the site is a cemetery. More than two million people each year visit its memorials, monuments, and museum while strolling through the pleasant gardens along its 17 kilometers of streets and paths. Another important Hamburg memorial is the Bismarck Monument , the best known of Germany's many towers commemorating the country's most revered politician. Fascinating English language guided tours are available, and are highly recommended.

Planten un Blomen and Wallringpark

At the St. Pauli landing stages in Hamburg is the Wallringpark, a large recreational area that includes some of the city's most popular open spaces, such as the Old Botanic Garden and the Kleine and Grosse Wallanlagen , the gardens laid out on the line of the old fortifications.

The best of these excellent parks is Planten un Blomen - quite literally translated as "Plants and Flowers". The lovely 116-acre park was established in 1821 with the planting of a Platanus tree that can still be seen here. It's a wonderful place to relax and enjoy a picnic, or if visiting at night, take in the famous water-light concerts or a musical performance.

From Wallringpark, you're just minutes away from the 272-meter-high Heinrich Hertz Telecommunications Tower , popularly known as 'Tele-Michel"; though now closed to the public, it remains a striking sight.

Address: Marseiller Str., 20355 Hamburg

St. James Church in Hamburg

A few minutes' walk east of Hamburg city center will take you to the attractive St. James's Church, also known as St. Jacob's (Hauptkirche St. Jacobi). It's one of the most important religious sites in the city after St. Michael's. A church has existed on this site since 1255, at which time it was outside the city walls.

The splendid 14th-century building you see today houses a variety of important artifacts and architectural highlights, including its medieval altars. Perhaps its most important feature, though, is its Arp Schnitger organ. Built in 1693, this magnificent instrument is one of the oldest and best preserved still in use today and boasts no less than 60 registers and over 4,000 pipes.

Visitors can get to hear this masterpiece during regularly scheduled concerts and recitals, often with the church's choir. Interesting tours of the church, including some that focus specifically on music and its organs, are available and come highly recommended.

Here, near the Neumühlen ferry station on the Elbe main shipping channel, you'll find the Museumshafen (Museum Harbor), home to about 20 historic vessels from the period 1880 to 1960, each carefully restored by a private organization.

This impressive collection of important old vessels includes traditional German and Dutch flat bottom ships as well as barges, fishing boats, and steam tugs, some of them open to the public. One of the larger vessels is the SS Stettin , a former icebreaker built in 1933 that's now used for pleasure trips.

A sleeping lion at the Tierpark Hagenbeck

Tucked away in Hamburg's northwestern suburb of Stellingen, Tierpark Hagenbeck, the city's zoo, was established in 1907 to house a collection of exotic animals owned by a local fishmonger-turned-exotic animal trader by the name of Carl Hagenbeck. The zoo is still run by his descendants.

This excellent facility was the first in the world to use open enclosures surrounded by ditches as opposed to cages, increasing the free-range area of the animals. It was also the first zoo to group animals by species, ideas that inspired the owners of other zoo parks to adopt.

Other family attractions worthy of a visit is Planetarium Hamburg , located in an old water tower, and the CHOCOVERSUM Chocolate Museum , a fun interactive museum with displays focusing on chocolate making. And yes, you can make your very own chocolate bars!

In truth, just One day in Hamburg isn’t nearly enough time but it seems to be the most searched option and the most likely for a lot of visitors passing through on their way elsewhere… so we have endeavoured to plan for your perfect Hamburg in one-day itinerary!

For those looking for a city break filled with incredible architecture, varied culture and fascinating history without the crowds that flock to the more popular destinations then Hamburg is ideal. From the docks to the industrial heritage of the city, the alternative vibe, live music and punk culture to ornate buildings, a luxury shopping district and a leafy green city centre. Hamburg has it all, with non of the big city attitude or crowds but ten times the passion and atmosphere! So here’s our guide to 24-hour Hamburg… maybe you’ll come back for more once you see how great it is!!

How to plan your Hamburg one-day trip around the different transport options in and around the City.

Getting In And Out Of Hamburg

Hamburg Airport is well served for European destinations with many low-cost airlines flying here. It does however have a limited long-haul service so it might be best to connect via Frankfurt or Berlin depending on your destination. However, Emirates does fly from here to Dubai which means you are still pretty well connected to get to places like Asia and Australia. With short cheap flights to much of Europe though it does make doing Hamburg in a day easier to plan!

Book Your Flights To Hamburg Here

The airport can be reached easily using the U-bahn service from the city centre. With it being in the outer zones it is best to buy a stand-alone ticket for this trip and then think about another ticket to cover your 24 hours in Hamburg.

Hamburg ZOB bus station is well connected with coaches heading to almost every city in Germany with buses to Berlin leaving as regularly as 30 times a day! German bus companies provide cheap transport to cities like Cologne, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Munich, Hannover, Bremen.

Book Your Bus To Hamburg Here

Hamburg ZOB is also well-served for international travel. Buses and Coaches leave daily for destinations such as Vienna, Paris, Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, Zurich, Basel, Milan, Rome, Prague, Budapest and other further-off destinations in Europe such as Zagreb with less regularity. Though these are long-haul services so 24 hours in Hamburg might be a short time after such a trip!

Hamburg Train Station is the busiest in Germany and the second busiest in Europe. The building itself dates back to 1906 and it’s well worth taking the time to take it in before your trip.

The station serves trains to almost every corner of Germany with more regular services to all of the big cities with Berlin being only a 2-hour trip away and places like Cologne around 4 hours away. This makes doing Hamburg in a day a lot easier as you can quickly continue your journey without being too tired.

Hamburg Train Station is also well served for international travel with daily services to places like Paris, Basel, Zurich and Copenhagen with the latter being around  4h 45 mins away, perfect for a quick 1 day in Hamburg whilst travelling around the region.

Generally, train prices are a little more expensive than the buses but will get you there faster.

Transport In Hamburg

Hamburg is served by the U-Bahn and the S-bahn metro trains which offer a great service, so it’s ideal for 1 day in Hamburg.

The system works in zones similar to many other metro systems around the world. Most tourists would only be visiting zones A-B which are within the “City Zone”.

If you are coming and going from the Airport however then you will be heading out of the City Zone. You can buy tickets according to the distance, and zones or type in the machine-specific stations so this is the best way to get from the airport to the city.

It also works on a single ticket basis where you can buy “Short Journey” or “Local Journey” within the AB zone.

It can be a bit confusing when selecting a short journey and deciphering which one you need as it’s not clear on the machines how long that actually is. Generally, it’s around 2-3 stops/ a 10-minute ride.

Day tickets can be bought and you have a choice of a “ 9 am Day Ticket”  or an “ All Day Ticket” . The All Day ticket is a little more expensive and this is because it covers the rush hour between 6 am – 9 am whereas the other tickets cover all hours apart from these. It’s a bit like a Peak and Off Peak ticket. You can also get Day Group Tickets too. These day tickets are then priced according to how many zones they cover.

We recommend if you’re doing Hamburg in a day then to get an All Day Ticket to save you time and cover your whole 24 hours in Hamburg.

For those who do stay longer, you can also get weekly tickets.

You can also look at doing one of the Hop on Hop off bus tours which are ideal for those spending only a day here as they cover all the areas you will want to visit as well as some additional information about each area/ landmark with the audio commentary available. There is also the Hamburg CITY card which includes public transport and up to 50% off tickets for attractions which you can get for your Hamburg one-day trip.

Best Place to Book Tour

As much as we love independent travelling, sometimes the best way to access certain places, experience local culture and get real authentic information is on a tour.

For the best trips, tours and guides we always use Get Your Guide .

Summer in Hamburg is generally very sunny, warm and pleasant. It can get quite hot as with many countries in Northern Europe as not many places have AC. However there are a few places where you can swim in the city, just check out Hamburg TripAdvisor for the best places.

Winter is another popular time to come and in particular the time in the run-up to Christmas. Hamburg can get bitterly cold and wet in the winter and snow is common. However, the Christmas Markets here are some of the best and most authentic in the world and are a really magical experience and worthy of a mention in any Hamburg guide.

If ever there was a time when Hamburg does get busy it can be over the summer months but in particular the Christmas period with the markets being a Hamburg must-see. Spring and Autumn can be unpredictable weather wise but late Spring and Early Autumn are usually ok but you should prepare for various weather conditions. Just bear in mind if you do only do 1 day in Hamburg then you might catch bad weather!

There is a lot to do in One day in Hamburg so it’s best to plan out your time here to make the most of it. We suggest firstly thinking about what areas are the ones you want to prioritise in your 24 hours Hamburg and then going from there. For us this would be our ideal way to visit Hamburg in one day:

A different view of the famous rathaus/ townhall of Hamburg (One day in Hamburg, Hamburg in one day, 1 day in Hamburg, 24 hours Hamburg, Hamburg itinerary, things to do in Hamburg, weekend in Hamburg)

Begin the day right in the heart of the city at at the stunning Rathaus building, from here you can easily access the ornate Alster Arkaden, the venetian shopping arcade famed for its impressive architecture. This is also a perfect place to walk along the Alster too, the serine river that runs right through the centre of the city. From here you can take a short walk to see this iconic Church of St. Michaelis and even ascend it’s spire.

That should just about take your morning up so next head to the Sternschanze/ Schanzenviertel on the train, this is a little further out but well worth it. This is an ideal place to get some lunch and try out some Currywurst before checking out the famous “Rota Flora” building and it’s homemade skatepark!

In the afternoon it’s time to explore the Speicherstadt Quarter, or the warehouse district. For us Meßberg is the best U-Bahn to head to as it’s just across the road from probably the most iconic view of this district. It’s is an ideal starting point to stroll down towards the Philharmonic theatre and to end up at Miniatur Wunderland, which is idea to visit once it goes dark or if the weather is really bad!

Take the train to “Landungsbrücken” which is the main harbour area of the city, this working port is both one of the most historic areas of the city but also a great modern area to hang out with bars and even an urban beach in the summer. From here it’s a short walk to the famous Reeperbahn in the St Pauli district, historically populated by sailors it has a seedy reputation but today is known as a trendy hipster area with great places to eat and drink. This is the ideal place to spend the rest of the evening experiencing the best of Hamburg’s restaurants and famous nightlife!

Many bars will have live music and remember, the party doesn’t start until late into the night in Hamburg, around 11pm, so you’ve plenty of time to explore and have some food first!

The warehouse district of hamburg and its canals. (One day in Hamburg, Hamburg in one day, 1 day in Hamburg, 24 hours Hamburg, Hamburg itinerary, things to do in Hamburg, weekend in Hamburg)

In all honesty, Hamburg in one day isn’t enough time to see the city properly, but it seems like it’s the most popular or common amount of time people tend to get here as they pass through for places like Berlin or Southern Germany. But it’s enough time to get a taste of what the city has to offer, the unique architecture of the canals, harbours and different districts shaped by its history as a port town. Maybe after doing your Hamburg in 1 day trip you might come back for more!

This is a pretty exhaustive day we’ve got planned for you, but in case you didn’t realise already, we really do love Hamburg so it was hard not to include all those places. If you’re like us and love to fit in as much as possible then you should have no trouble fitting it all in to a tiring but rewarding day. But if you like to take things a bit slower (maybe a day isn’t for you!) then you can easily pick and choose from the list below and craft your own One day in Hamburg itinerary!

Book A Hamburg Bike Tour Here

Hamburg in one day is going to be pretty busy, so maybe a tour might help you plan your time or fit in all those places with some great info to go along too. It’s a great way to spend 24 hours in Hamburg.

Take In The Stunning Rathaus/ Town Hall 

The real centrepiece of the city is the beautiful town hall or Rathaus which makes it one of the top things to do in Hamburg. Set near the lake Binnenalster and built between 1886 and 1897 the town hall is a wonderful example of neo-renaissance style architecture. It was built at a time when the independent state of Hamburg wanted to show off its wealth and republican traditions. If you visit this beautiful city then the Rathaus should be top of your top things to do in Hamburg plan.

 _________

To this day the Rathaus still houses Hamburg’s parliament, senate and mayor’s office as well as being one of the main Hamburg sights. The town hall is also pretty huge, its tower is 367 ft high and with 647 rooms it has 6 more than Buckingham Palace! It is also right outside here where you will find the magical Christmas Markets over the festive period, so if you find yourself here in winter wondering what to do in Hamburg then the markets are a magical experience.

The Hamburg Rathaus is right in the heart of the city! You can’t miss it!

Take A Hamburg Historic Tour From Here

Shop At The Venetian Alster Arkaden

Hamburg is also famous for its shopping, whether that be the independent outlets of the alternative districts or the exclusive boutiques of the elegant Alster Arkaden. The picturesque spot is lined with Venetian architecture, historic arcades, detailed wrought iron lamps and is filled with the buzz of cafes and shops. Even if shopping isn’t for you, just a stroll and relaxing bite to eat around here is a lovely way to spend part of your Hamburg in one day trip and one of the many peaceful places to visit in Hamburg.

Stroll Along The Alster

The Alster is one of Hamburg’s two main rivers, the other being the all important Elbe which serves the harbour. The Alster on the other hand is much more serine and offers wonderful walks in which you almost forget you are in a city. Not only that but within the centre the river creates two beautiful swan filled lakes around which the city is built. The Alster offers untouched idyllic scenes and adds to the unique atmosphere of Hamburg with its many green spaces. There are also boat tours, rentable canoes and many other ways to enjoy the water including swimming in the summer!

Church of St. Michaelis

A landmark of Hamburg the huge clock tower of “Michel” can be see all over the city and offers stunning views. Built between 1648 and 1661 it is one of the oldest and most well known churches in Northern Germany as well as being one of only a few purpose built protestant churches in Hamburg. The baroque church is considered one of the finest of the Hanseatic region and its interior is one of splendid gold and white. It is also possible to head up to the top of the tower for great views over the city which is one of the most popular Hamburg tourist attractions. It’s also a great quick culture pit stop for your Hamburg in one day trip.

Get Lost in The Alternative Sternschanze/ Schanzenviertel Quarter

Probably my favourite area of the city, the alternative quarter of Hamburg that is jam packed full of counter culture, art and music. The former working class area has evolved into the bohemian capital of the city, at its centre the “Rota Flora”, a semi-derelict building that has at one time been a theatre, informal music venue and squat, not the most obvious of the Hamburg attractions but the most cool!

Covered in graffiti it even has its own DIY skate park out at the back! “ Schanze” has a real laid back vibe with independent bars, cheap places to eat, boutique shops and tiny galleries making it one of the coolest things to see in Hamburg. There is even an old war bunker right in the middle of the district which is covered in graffiti and has a climbing all up the side! It’s the trendy, borderline hipster but still grungy area of the city that we love!

Eat CurryWurst!

A German experience not to be missed… currywurst! The Deutsch answer to our fish and chips, a huge wurst or German sausage covered in curry sauce and often served with chips slathered in mayo!! What’s not to love! You think the currywurst is good in Berlin, you haven’t tried anything yet! The best shops are in the Schanzenviertel quarter where you can also get vegetarian and vegan varieties too! The perfect snack for you Hamburg city break.

See The Biggest Warehouse District In The World At The Speicherstadt Quarter

Much like our hometown of Manchester, Hamburg was built on industry and as a result has a myriad of canals and wonderfully repurposed warehouses and factories that have now become part of the Hamburg tourism map. Close to the harbour is the world largest warehouse complex which once stored silk, carpets, cocoa and a whole host of other goods. Often called the Venice of the north, in fact Hamburg has more canals than Amsterdam and venice combined! There are tours down the waterways, live bands playing on barges and great bars and restaurants to also explore here when you visit Hamburg. There is also the newly built “Elbphilharmonie” or Hamburg Opera House whose modern glass building was designed to represent a sail and works perfectly with the historic neighbourhood and should be high on any list of what to see in Hamburg.

Discover The Magic of Minitur Wunderland 

Unleash your inner geek and marvel at the sheer absurdity that is Minaur Wunderland, a must on any One day in Hamburg trip! The world’s largest model railway it contains over 1000 trains, 260.000 figures and 4.110 buildings!

Visit The Historic But Modern Landungsbrücken/ Harbour Area

Hamburg was built around the water, much like Boston and Liverpool it is a harbour city and always will be. In fact it’s the third largest in the world behind London and New York and dates back over 800 years old so it’s definitely one of the best things to do in Hamburg! Hamburg was a leading member of the Hanseatic league and as such it’s full name of “The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg” reflects the rich history of this port city. In the modern era the harbour is still a working port but offers boat tours, beaches in the summer, seafood restaurant and amazing views making it a perfect place to visit on your one day in Hamburg.

Explore The Reeperbahn & St Pauli Neighbourhood

Hamburgs most famous and infamous street, the Reeperbahn in St Pauli. The heart of entertainment, live music and the city’s red light district. A night out on this legendary street is one you will never forget, Hamburgers start the night late and end it in the early hours! It was the amazing Hamburg nightlife that brought the Beatles to this very street at the start of their careers. St Pauli also has its own football team which is synonymous with left wing politics and punk culture. It’s a really fun place to end your Hamburg in one day trip.

I love Hamburg. I’ve been four times now, and each time I always find myself wanting to stay longer. Great list of things to do guys! You definitely need to be hitting up some of the night parties. Hamburg has some of the most insane nightlife you’ll ever experience. Real proper German techno, haha.

Nicely illustrated page, good style, and well written.

'  data-srcset=

I do love a city on water. I have only been to southern Germany- and that only because Munich was the most convenient place to fly out of during a European tour. I would love to go back and explore all of Germany as I was so impressed with the small amount that I got to visit.

Yeah, we love them too, there is something about them! We’ve not really been around the south actually and plan to go when we next travel around Europe… hopefully soon!! But we love Germany too!

'  data-srcset=

Hamburg looks like a beautiful city and would like to spend more than a day here eating lots of currywust! Yum! However, it’s good to know that I can do it in a day with your tips.

Yes, we’ve been fortunate to spend more time than that there and if people get the time it is worth it!

'  data-srcset=

This is one of the few cities I haven’t been to yet in Germany. I’ve always been drawn to it. The architecture and the vibrant city life – it has such a cool vibe to it. Especially in some of their unique neighborhoods – like the warehouse district.

'  data-srcset=

The whole country of Germany is on our travel wish list. So we are starting to compile our list of spots to visit. Good to get this guide on Hamburg. But I would agree that one day would not be enough to really enjoy the city with so much to see and do. I do like the idea of moving around Germany by train. I would love to visit in off season but take your warning about unpredictable weather.

For a great view of the Elbe, you should hit the viewing platform Plaza (eighth floor). The viewing platform is open daily from 10:00 a.m. to midnight.

Several restaurants, a spa and a hotel are also located on the same floor. For your appetite, visit the Plaza Café, open daily from 12:00 to 8:00 pm. The concert hall has fantastic acoustics. Consult the program and buy a ticket for a concert (on Sundays) and experience it for yourself.

If you are staying in Hamburg during the weekend and get up early, don’t miss the St. Pauli Fischmarkt on Sunday . The best time to visit it is between 06:00 and 07:00 in the morning. At that time the Fischmarkt is the most fun and the company the motleyst: the Hamburgers, early and odd birds shopping, tourists and late revelers. Have breakfast, with or without a beer, of course, after the fish market is over. Don’t forget to admire the beautiful murals on Große Elbstraße.

Karolinenviertel and Schanzenviertel

Two hip neighborhoods are Karolinenviertel and Schanzenviertel. This is where you will meet all the hipsters. They are neighborhoods full of modern, hip coffee shops, nice restaurants and special street art. Take a walk through one of these neighborhoods and feast your eyes.

  • Reviews : macedonboy ✭✭ 4 years ago Came to see this famous building that was partly created to be a landmark of the city. I’d say the builders succeeded and failed. It’s certainly a landmark building for it’s distinctive roof that looks like a wave and cost overruns. In my humble opinion it’s an ugly building. Neither the red rectangular base or the glass roof are a match for the opinion. It’s not just the colour clashing, it’s waging an all out war. stephan ✭✭✭✭✭ 5 years ago A “must see” when you visiting Hamburg. Awesome view about the river Elbe and the “HafenCity” area. And even if the building has cost a furtune, the entry is for free. If the queue is too long take a look around the corner (opposite street). There is a small shop where you can also get tickets for free. Luke Hall ✭✭✭✭ 4 years ago Excellent views from the plaza. Tickets cost just 2 euros each from the website. You can then enter by scanning the QR code on your phone. However there was an attendant letting everyone in for free so it was a bit confusing. Sinan Faouri ✭✭✭✭✭ 5 months ago Very nice balcony view with the plaza tickets bought from visitor center! Quentin Culminique ✭✭✭✭✭ 3 years ago Really nice and good looking building ! Amazing views ❤️

  • Reviews : Adriana Campos ✭ 5 months ago Save your time, this is for sure the worst tourist office I’ve ever been to. The man working there must either hate his job or hate people, he was extremely rude, unhelpful and totally unwilling to answer any questions, he just gave us a map and circled some places. It would honestly be more efficient to just have a machine doing the same, and the machine would probably be nicer to interact with. Terrible experience 👎 Nicky Obrien ✭ 5 years ago If I could give a minus I would awful how we were treated emailed today no reply! Bought a ticket that allows you on public services also on a train from airport to Hamburg to be greeted by conductors who accepted my receipt then two security officers got on and gave us a fine of 60 euros each explained not here for long and I had paid and showed proof. No we had to go and pay the fine. I was really upset ruined the 2 day break and spend 3 hours the next day trying to find the place we got it sorted in the end but no way woukd I treat people like that. The man at the depo was vert helpful but Defo will never go back David Sanjuan ✭ 5 years ago I told the woman there that I had one and a half day to visit Hamburg and needed some information. Here her exact answer written: “Here you have a map, turn left when you leave to go to the center”. I wonder if a machine dispensing maps wouldn’t be much more efficient. Elede GD ✭ 5 years ago Only 2 people (old people), that just give you leaflets and maps, but they don’t want to answer or take too much time answering your doubts. “It’s all on the leaflet” was his answer. Terrible customer service. Arijit Das ✭✭✭✭✭ 5 months ago Nice.
