Sightseeing in Hamburg

Don't miss this!

If you ask 100 people on the street what they associate with "Hamburg", you would get 100 different answers. Whether it's culture, recreation, culinary delights or shopping, Hamburg is unbelievably diverse; no two areas are the same, and every visitor to Hamburg can compile their own individual list of must-sees. Nevertheless, there are also undoubtedly a number of top sights that every German or Hamburg visitor has heard of before.

Since its opening on January 11, 2017, The Elbphilharmonie has become the new emblem of Hamburg. Located on the eastern tip of the HafenCity, the modern glass structure with its striking undulating roof seemingly floats above the historic Kaispeicher. Like a lighthouse, the Elbphilharmonie greets incoming ships and signals from afar, "You have arrived."

A little overshadowed by the Elbphilharmonie, but by no means less worth seeing: St. Michael's Church, better known as the Michel. The "Church of the Poor" has been one of Hamburg's landmarks for centuries. The Michel is one of the most beautiful baroque churches in northern Germany and impresses with its magnificent interior. An ascent to the top of its tower is worthwhile: from here you have the best view of the harbour, the Elbphilharmonie and the Alster.

Germany's only private zoo attracts millions of enthusiastic visitors every year. In addition to leopards, fur seals and the like, elephants, lions, tigers and the beloved monkeys can also be seen here. Opened in 2012, the Arctic Ocean is not only a technical masterpiece but also a real eye-catcher and a very special highlight. Here polar bears live close to penguins and walruses without really getting too close to each other. That can be found nowhere else!
