Doing good for yourself and the environment while travelling

Sustainability in Hamburg

For us, sustainability means thinking about tomorrow today. In Hamburg, guests should feel just as comfortable as the locals - and that for many generations to come. Hamburg is on its way to becoming a climate-neutral city: did you know that Hamburg has more than 35 nature reserves? And is a real pioneer in sustainable urban development? By the way, with over 540 km² of green spaces, Hamburg is the greenest metropolis in Germany. Find out for yourself how liveable Hamburg is.

Sustainable travel tips for Hamburg

Relax in Hamburg's parks and gardens - on a walk around the Outer Alster, a picnic in Wilhelmsburg Inselpark or a bike ride in the Vier- und Marschlande. But it is not only its green spaces that make Hamburg a sustainable destination. The fact that Hamburgers have a green heart in the right place can be seen at every turn.

Germany's first zero waste coffee shop, Café In guter Gesellschaft, opened in Sternschanze. At the Raphael Hotel Wälderhaus you can dream under trees, the Greenpeace exhibition makes environmental protection tangible and no less than seven restaurants in Hamburg received the Michelin Green Star in 2022 for their environmentally and climate-friendly way of working. In Hamburg, sustainability also means showing social commitment. The Millerntor Gallery art festival works to ensure that people worldwide have access to clean drinking water, and in Europe's first integration hotel, the Stadthaushotel Hamburg, employees with and without disabilities work together.

What does sustainable travel mean?

Sustainable travel begins with a conscious, compatible approach to nature and the environment. In Hamburg you have the choice. Your stay can easily be made more sustainable - from the environmentally friendly journey by train to the night in an ecological hotel and continues throughout your entire holiday. When looking at the menus of sustainable restaurants, buying souvenirs, going on a fair shopping tour, going on excursions into nature or visiting sights - in Hamburg there are numerous restaurants, excursion destinations and shops that pay attention to environmental protection and act socially. We have put together a few tips and numerous exciting ideas for you. Because travelling sustainably in Hamburg also means doing something good for yourself!
