Hamburg in the Springtime

Experience Hamburg in full flower!

Our tips & recommendations

Exploring Hamburg in spring is especially attractive for nature-lovers. The city's numerous gardens and parks entice visitors to pause and enjoy. This includes, for example, the large Stadtpark (City Park), which is a true paradise for chilling, for jogging or for walking the dog. In addition, the grounds include a planetarium, a natural and an outdoor swimming pool, a model boat pond, a rose garden, a minigolf course as well as an open-air stage for round-the-clock entertainment. The Stadtpark is located in Winterhude, which can be reached with the Suburban lines S1 and S11 as well as the Underground line U3.
