Hamburgers as such are patriots and, for all their modesty, consider their hometown to be the most beautiful city in the world. Anyone who walks around the Alster on a sunny day, goes shopping in the Alsterarkaden and experiences the sunset at the harbor is inclined to agree with him.

Take the train to Jungfernstieg: Plan arrival

Hamburg is traditionally a cosmopolitan city, which is due to the port and the fact that ships from all over the world have always docked here. The port is also usually the first point of attraction for guests coming to Hamburg travel, for example, to experience one of the many musicals that are constantly performed here at various venues. 

Of course, you also want to see the sinful mile of the Reeperbahn once with your own eyes. And of course you also want to see the new Hafencity, which has come to life more and more in the last 15, 20 years and was further refined by the Elbphilharmonie in 2016: The grandiose concert hall was controversial for a long time - the immense costs! But since it was completed and went into operation, it has become one of the city's most important attractions in record time, almost a new landmark.

Hamburg's recreational value is immense: the Binnenalster with its serviced jetties, the Alsterarkaden between Jungfernstieg and Rathausmarkt, the small canals on which boats sail on nice days like in Venice, the classic shopping splendor on Mönckebergstraße, but also the colorful cultural and gastronomic scene in the neighboring neighborhoods of St. Pauli, Schanze and Karo-Viertel contribute to making a visit to the Hanseatic city a diverse pleasure in any case.
