Must See

Take a walk or a canal boat tour of the Speicherstadt, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The vast warehouse district features striking Gothic-style architecture dating from the 1880s, including the castle-like Wasserschloss. Some buildings now house restaurants and attractions, such as the popular Miniatur Wunderland, a scale-model world including cities, a railway with moving trains and an airport.

What's New

Designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron, Hamburg’s new Elbphilharmonie concert hall perches on top of a 1960s warehouse, among the eye-catching skyscrapers of the evolving waterfront HafenCity district. Catch international classical and jazz artists in concert, or admire the panoramic city and harbor views from the building’s massive, 37-metre-high public plaza.

Tips

Art lovers planning to hit a few museums can save euros with the 3-day Kunstmeile Pass, which grants admission to 5 leading institutions. These include Hamburger Kunsthalle, which has a renowned collection including 17th-century Dutch paintings, medieval altars and contemporary German art. The lively St. Pauli Fischmarkt, open on Sunday mornings, offers fresh seafood and plenty of local color.

Must Do

Make the most of the hotel’s proximity to Alster Lake. Blow off steam after a meeting with a jog around the 7.5km outer lake circuit, or relax in a lakeside café. To the south, where the Jungfernstieg promenade skirts the Inner Alster, you can browse in historic shopping arcades, well-known department stores and luxury boutiques. Nearby, relaxing boat tours run all year round.

Don't Go Home Without

Discover the waterside attractions of this lively port city. Stroll along the floating Landungsbrücken piers, looking out for luxury cruise ships, and stop for a fish sandwich at one of the casual eateries. From here, take a walk through the atmospheric tunnel under the Elbe River, built in 1911. Ticket holders can catch the free ferry to Theater im Hafen to see a hit Broadway musical.
