What to do in Hamburg
Hamburg, one of Germany’s most interesting cities, is where you can find diverse cultures, an exciting food scene, countless museums, great shopping streets, nightlife and friendly locals. The city is also part of the UNESCO World Heritage list, so you’re sure to love gorgeous Hamburg.
Explore Hamburg’s city centre and go church hopping for a spiritual journey and amazing travel photos. There’s St James’ Church, St Peter’s Church, St Nicholas’ Church, St Catherine’s Church, and St Michael’s Church. Don’t forget to take photos of the stunning Rathaus too, especially at night.
Spend hours browsing through the best museums of the city, including Hamburg Museum, Kunsthalle, Deichtorhallen, and Miniature Wunderland, which your kids will also enjoy. If you aren’t a culture vulture now, don’t be shocked if you become one by the end of your trip.
Visit the city’s other top attractions like the 19th-century Warehouse District and the Kohlbran Bridge. Feel the wind in your hair and explore Hamburg’s waterways with a ferry ride from Jungfernstieg. And if you want a beach day, bring your bathers to Elbe Beach.
Experience Hamburg like a local and join the city’s awesome events like the Night of Museums, Fish Market, Harbour Birthday, the Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival, and the exciting Hamburger Dom fair. Don’t you dare miss Hamburg’s street parades and parties too, like the Altonale, Bergedorfer Stadtfest, Schlagermove Parade, Hamburg Pride, and the Carnival of Cultures.
