A UNESCO world heritage site, Germany’s very own maritime metropolis offers its visitors a fantastic stay, featuring some of the most famous, most exciting and craziest experiences imaginable. Whether you follow the Hanseatic trail, take a boat trip on the Alster or embark on a mystery tour through Hamburg’s many diverse neighbourhoods – there’s never a dull moment in the Speicherstadt!
A must-see on any visitor to Hamburg’s bucket list just has to be the Miniatur Wunderland. Thanks to millions of enthusiastic guests from all over the world, this exciting attraction has become one of the largest in Germany! If you like the spooky and macabre, along with a good dose of fun, why not check out the Hamburg Dungeon, where actors take you on a gruesome tour of the darker side of our city’s history? All this and more awaits you in the historic Speicherstadt, a UNESCO world heritage site since 2015.
Hamburg is built on and around the Elbe and Alster rivers. Water sports therefore feature heavily in the daily lives of the local people. If that’s your cup of tea, too, why not hire an SUP board, sailing boat or canoe and take a relaxing trip on the Alster and explore the surrounding canals? The Elbe is a faster river, especially if you join the RIB Piraten for an exhilarating, high-speed tour! The numerous beach clubs such as Strand Pauli or the Strandperle in Övelgönne are wonderful places for a cheeky cocktail at the harbour at the end of a long and enjoyable day.
Hamburg’s littlest visitors don’t want to relax, they want to explore and have fun. The JUMP Houses, the Rabatzz indoor playground and the Schwarzlichtviertel (black light district) are the perfect places for this. How far away is Jupiter? Why do the stars shine so brightly at night? Answer these questions and more as you embark on an unforgettable journey through the universe at the Planetarium in the Stadtpark or the Hamburg Observatory. The city’s numerous Escape Rooms are also exciting and imaginative, with endless secrets and puzzles just waiting to be solved. Anyone looking for an adrenaline rush should definitely have a go at climbing the masts of the Cap San Diego in the harbour – accompanied by professional climbers, of course! You can also spend the night in the cabins on this historic cargo ship and feel as if you were actually sailing the high seas – definitely not for landlubbers!
