Welcome to Hamburg!
This beautiful Hanseatic city has a great deal to offer. To make sure you are not going to miss out on anything of interest, here is an overview of Hamburg's most popular sightseeing highlights.
Boat cruises on the Binnenalster and the Aussenalster as well as leisurely walks around these river basins are very popular activities. At sunset the Aussenalster takes on a very romantic air.
The Hamburg Town Hall is not only where the Senate and the citizenry meet; it is also one of the Hanseatic city's most beautiful and imposing buildings. Its predecessor building was located on the Alsterhafen; it was the political and commercial centre of the city until the year 1842.
The Alsterhaus – the must-see experience for shopping enthusiasts. Here you can find anything your heart desires. The good things about it are the good things inside.
The famous St. Pauli Fischmarkt attracts a great many Hamburg residents and visitors alike! Here you can find fresh fish, fruit and flowers.
Just as alluring for many visitors to Hamburg is the Reeperbahn entertainment district. With all its little side streets, it is the destination of choice not only for night revellers; the Kiez (pronounced “keetz”) – as the locals call it – in St. Pauli also attracts daytime visitors with its colourful cafes and sophisticated restaurants.
Both the historic Speicherstadt warehouse district and the HafenCity precinct are must-see destinations on any exploratory walk through Hamburg – the contrast between the neo-Gothic red-brick architecture of the former and the modern glass-and-steel buildings of the latter are a hallmark of the variety offered by our Hanseatic city.
The principal St. Michael’s church is the symbol of the Hanseatic city, and that makes it another must-see attraction for any visitor to Hamburg.
The appeal of picturesque Blankenese lies in its many nooks and crannies, luxurious mansions and charismatic residences along the terraced slope overlooking the river Elbe.
