Activities to fall in love with

Excursion tips for couples

Seven activities for two

It doesn't always have to be a visit to a restaurant. There are other ways to realise the perfect date. Whether you're newly in love or have been together for a long time - we'll give you some tingling alternative ideas to a restaurant visit. Whether moving, seductive or simply dreamy, there will be something for everyone.

1. Do you want to go with me?

Hamburg is full of beautiful corners that invite you to take a dreamy stroll. The idyllic stepped neighbourhood of Blankenese with its many former fishermen's cottages is at the top of the list. In the city centre, on the other hand, the ramparts in particular offer a romantic all-round package: a stroll through the botanical garden, then past the Japanese gardens with the enchanting tea house and finally a detour to the butterfly garden - the perfect date is complete. And on warm summer evenings, you will also be treated to a very special experience - completely free of charge: the park's water features with light organ and orchestral music.

2. Set sail together - off to new horizons

A sea voyage is fun, a sea voyage is beautiful - and possible in several places in the Hanseatic city: from classic harbour tours to quaint boat trips through the warehouse district or on your own with a canoe or SUP through the Alster canals, everything is included. The people of Hamburg are also extremely creative when it comes to utilising their ships. Those who quickly suffer from seasickness on the open sea but still love the ship's flair will love the fixed boat offers: e.g. the concert ship Stubnitz, the high ropes course on the Rickmer Rickmers or the escape game on the Cap San Diego.

3. Counting shooting stars

Speaking of boats: Incidentally, these not only sail during the day, but also invite you to go on night-time cruises under the starry sky. Experiencing the harbour or the Alster so dreamily in the stillness of the night makes for particularly beautiful memories. The Arribabad offers another nocturnal experience far away from sailing, but also close to the water, with its "moonlight experience": especially in winter, you can splash around in the warmly lit outdoor pool every day between 7.30 p.m. and 10 p.m. and count shooting stars in the sky together.

Twilight cruise on the Alster Sunset from the water

When the sky over Hamburg turns red and the city lights gradually come on, there is no better way to experience the special magic of the Alster and its canals than on a twilight cruise.

4. Laugh and cry together

Nothing connects more than sharing emotions. Few activities are as harmless and yet as emotionally charged as a visit to a Stage Entertainment musical. The cult musical "Die heiße Ecke" in St. Pauli is no less grandiose, but more down-to-earth and with a hearty sense of humour. If, on the other hand, you prefer something a little more refined, the touching ballet productions at the Hamburg Ballet by John Neumeier are a first-class choice.

5. Float on cloud nine

A few places in Hamburg create the perfect conditions for floating on cloud nine together. These include the Cloud's Heaven rooftop bar, for example, which lives up to its name at a height of 235 metres. The Plaza of the Elbphilharmonie concert hall is also a great place to enjoy life at lofty heights. Not quite "above the clouds", but unbeatable, especially at sunset: the Stintfang viewpoint at the Landungsbrücken. The place with the magnificent view over the harbour is just perfect for dreaming away together, arm in arm.

6. Get up close and personal

The Hammam Hamburg in the Schanze has a special offer for floating on cloud nine (not only) for lovers: the cloud foam massage. This does not involve any metres in altitude, just plenty of fragrant soap foam and skilful massage techniques. Couples and friends are treated in the same room - a beautifully decorated oriental bathhouse. Afterwards, you can snuggle up and relax together under an oriental canopy in a fluffy bathrobe with the lights dimmed.

7. Journey to the moon and back again

Didn't catch a balmy summer night to watch the moon rise on a picnic blanket in the park? Never mind! The planetarium is located right next to the city park. Here you can easily catch up on the experience you missed on a wonderful 360-degree visual journey. Depending on the show, there are even several moons and distant star galaxies to marvel at. And you even have a stargazing guarantee here - regardless of the time of year.
