Discover Hamburg

Living. Loving. Hamburg

Hamburg is one of Germany’s most beautiful cities. Magnificent cruise liners and huge container ships approach the harbor every day and offer a fascinating spectacle to the audience. The HafenCity and the UNESCO World Heritage site Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus District with Chilehaus display Hamburg’s history as well as its urbanistic future. The incomparable Miniatur Wunderland and several successful musicals from Disney’s Lion King to Disney’s Aladdin are major touristic attractions in Hamburg and make the children’s eyes shine as much as the adults’. On Hamburg’s natural pearl, the Alster Lake, right in the heart of the city there are located Hamburg’s award winning cultural sites: the Thalia Theater, the Hamburg State Opera, the Deutsches Schauspielhaus and the city’s most important museums, such as the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the Deichtorhallen
and the Bucerius Kunst Forum.
  
In numerous fancy shopping centers, one should not think about saving money. In the end, there is not much left except for a tasty fish bun, called Fischbrötchen. Don’t miss a visit to the notorious Reeperbahn,  the world’s most frivolous mile and today’s major entertainment area in Hamburg. 
On Sunday mornings, mingle with the night owls and early birds at the famous the fish market in Altona. Welcome to Hamburg!

Vibrant city on the waterfront

What would Hamburg be without its port and the many maritime attractions along the River Elbe. Here the city's heart beats night and day to the rhythm of the tides; here tradition and modern living blend to create an atmosphere unlike any other in the world. The Free Hanseatic City of Hamburg owes both its prosperity and its reputation as the 'gateway to the world' to its international port. For centuries it has seen people from many countries and cultures depart and arrive, generating a cosmopolitan outlook that is now apparent in all aspects of Hamburg life.

Hamburg – A Cultural Gem

Highbrow, energetic or off-beat? Hamburg's multi-faceted arts and entertainment scene is hard to categorize but has something for everyone. The city has long been a magnet for culturally minded travellers and rivals major destinations such as New York, Paris and Rome. Excellent theatres and orchestras, exciting museums, sensational exhibitions, experimental dance theatre and sumptuous ballet reflect the cultural riches of this city on the River Elbe.
With the Laeiszhalle, the State Opera and the Elbphilharmonie, to be opened in January 2017, Johannes Brahms’ birthplace Hamburg is home to as many as three large orchestras that are dedicated to the finest works in the history of classical music.

Hamburg’s nightlife: Already the Beatles loved it

A night out in Hamburg is unthinkable without a visit to St. Pauli and the Reeperbahn: The former "street of sin" today offers a long list of pubs, clubs and bars. Here you can also retrace the steps of the Beatles, who started their incredible career in this part of the city.
Hamburg is also the perfect place to go on a gastronomic tour around the globe. Restaurants serve food from almost every part of the world- as well as typical Hamburg dishes, such as pan-fried fish, Eel soup and Labskaus.
