Germany's second city and largest port, Hamburg is an economically dynamic city, beloved by tourists. Hamburg embodies its role as guardian of Germany’s seafaring tradition: the historic harbor and its fish market, the maritime museum, and the old warehouse district, the red-bricked Speicherstadt, all point to its watery legacy. Embrace it with a river cruise on the timeless Elbe or Alster rivers to see the city the way it was intended: from the water.
From the neo-renaissance city hall to the weathered stones of St Petri’s church and the modern architecture of Hafen City, Hamburg is a charming, eclectic mix of the old and new. And it’s not just the sea!
You can explore a shrunken world at the Miniatur Wunderland, get cultured at the Museum of Fine Arts, and be enchanted by the city of pirates and the dome of St Michaelis, all in a single day! At night, explore the gritty side of the port city with a visit to the city’s anything-goes red light district, the Reeperbahn.
