1.Admire the city panorama

It doesn't really matter by day or by night - Hamburg is always beautiful. But if you have not yet been able to admire the city from above, you should definitely pay a visit to the night Michel. From here you have a magnificent panoramic view over the old and new town. Especially on warm summer nights, it is worth climbing up to the top of the Michel: Elphilharmonie, harbour and Alster shine in an incomparable sea of lights and the stars are within reach. Every Friday and Saturday the Michel opens its doors for you from 18.00 to 22:30.

What happens when everything darkens and smells, sounds and temperatures become the signposts of life? The DIALOG IM DUNKELN invites interested people into the world of the invisible. In completely darkened rooms, the blind and visually impaired guide visitors through the unique exhibition. Optical stimuli play no role here. The experience of different scents, winds, surface structures, noises and touches become an experience at DIALOG IM DUNKELN. Blind people present their world to those who see: a fascinating journey into the unknown.

Admittedly, it doesn't get completely dark in the Speicherstadt even at night. Around 800 floodlights illuminate the historic warehouse complex. The play of lights is a must-see for all night owls. In addition, the Speicherstadt at night offers the perfect backdrop for a romantic stroll.

Night owls and bargain hunters watch out: Every first Wednesday of the month there is a night flea market under the Sternbrücke. The legendary party triangle of Fundbureau, Astra Stube and Waagenbau then turns into a contact point for seekers and collectors of retro and vintage pieces. At a late hour, the prices of clothes, jewellery and bags are haggled over in a dim atmosphere.

The clocks tick differently on St. Pauli. It is not surprising that the weekly market is held at an unusually late hour. The market stalls are open every Wednesday from 4 pm to midnight. In the midst of the cheerful Reeperbahn hustle and bustle, the night market on the Spielbudenplatz has established itself as a popular "After Work" meeting place. Shopping, feasting and enjoying in the dark, why not?

Hamburg's Bunkermuseum reminds of dark times. During the Second World War, the bunker in Hamburg-Hamm offered thousands of people protection from bomb attacks. Today the shelter, five metres underground, is a museum. Documents and original audio recordings bear witness to the horrors of that time. The Bunker Museum is open on Thursdays.
