What to do on rainy days?

Ideas for rainy days

Three days of rain on your trip to Hamburg? No Problem at all - even with bad weather the hanseatic city has a lot to offer! To discover the city centre without getting wet feet and yet not to miss anything, we recommend a round trip with the Red Double Deckers. On the probably most independent city tour in Hamburg, you can get in and out at 28 stations: from HafenCity to Altona at many Hanseatic highlights, such as the Speicherstadt, Elbphilharmonie, Landungsbrücken or Fischmarkt. Afterwards you can have a coffee or a hot chocolate in one of the numerous cozy cafés. A visit to Hamburg's most beautiful spas is also a perfect alternative for long grey rainy days. Or just visit one of the many indoor flea markets of Hamburg, for example at the Fabrik in Altona or the one at Kölibri in St. Pauli. And if you want to experience something quite extraordinary on rainy days and at the same time sharpen your senses, visit the dark exhibition Dialog im Dunkeln or one of Hamburg's tricky escape rooms. We show you how to enjoy a rainy day in Hamburg to the fullest!
