Hamburg is a beautiful city and for many people it is even the most beautiful city in Germany. That is, of course, a matter of opinion. However, there is no doubt that the port city has a lot to offer visitors. It is not without reason that it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Germany due to its tourist attractions. Many people from all over the world come to Hamburg during their trip to Germany. Basically, this is not surprising. After all, Hamburg has some of the best attractions in the world. And we can experience them anytime without having to travel a long distance to do so. So let's take a look at why a visit to the Hanseatic city is never wrong.
ReeperbahnNo one should be surprised that we list the Reeperbahn here.
After all, a visit to the now very touristy Reeperbahn is a must. If you haven't been here, you haven't been to Hamburg. The sinful entertainment mile in St. Pauli is especially worth seeing at night. Then life pulsates here. There is always something going on in the bars, discos and nightclubs. The Reeperbahn is the perfect place to party and meet new people. Hamburg's nightlife would simply not be the same without the Reeperbahn.
Hamburg HarbourHamburgis a harbour city and a visit to the harbour is therefore actually a must. Especially since there is a lot to see at the port of Hamburg.
And no, we are not just talking about ships. The port has much more to offer. Among other things, the fish market and the fish auction hall are real highlights. If you love fish and are in Hamburg on Sundays, you should definitely get up early. The selection is huge. So there is the right fish for every taste.
Alter ElbtunnelReady todive into Hamburg's underground? Then the Old Elbe Tunnel at a depth of 426 metres is just the thing. In contrast to the New Elbe Tunnel, the Old Elbe Tunnel has been designed mainly for pedestrians and cyclists. Cars can only pass through here in exceptional cases. The Old Elbe Tunnel is considered a historic landmark of engineering in Germany and there is truly no denying that it is an architectural masterpiece.
Theater im HafenActually, this point does not only apply to the Theater im Hafen, but also to the Stage Theater an der Elbe as well as the Operettenhaus.
Why? Because musicals are regularly staged here and they simply belong to Hamburg. It is not without reason that Hamburg is one of the most important musical metropolises in the world. Only New York and London can hold a candle to the Hanseatic city in this respect. The Lion King is just one of the many musicals that culture enthusiasts can experience. If you are looking for a good way to wind down your stay in Hamburg, you should choose a musical.
DeichtorhallenEvenwhen it comes to art, Hamburg doesn't need to hide from other major cities. The Deichtorhallen is mainly about contemporary art. Exhibitions are held here regularly. Among others, artworks of the famous Andy Warhol can be seen frequently. But this is only the tip of the iceberg.
It is worth having a look at the different events. Occasionally there are real highlights for little money.
