Hamburg is the second-largest city in Germany and the eighth-largest city in the European Union. It is a popular tourist attraction likely because of its long and important history as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, as a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, and so on. It is also one of the most affluent cities in Europe. Hamburg has a major influx of international visitors throughout the year. A major center for European culture and history, it is an important site for travelers, scholars, and alike. The city features a great deal of museums, churches, theaters, festivals, parks, and gardens, as well as a wide range of architecture from different periods. Tourists, fly with Austrian Airlines to Hamburg and start experiencing all that it has to offer.

SIGHTS in Hamburg

Sights in Hamburg

Kunsthalle is home to a first-class collection, which covers no fewer than seven centuries. Here each of the big art families has its own room or house: the old masters are also represented, as are the authorities from the 19th century and the modern classics.   The media collection, which includes audio and video works, deserves a special mention. Among others it features work by Günter Brus, Dennis Oppenheim, Valie Export and Gordon Matta-Clark. The Gallery of Contemporary Art - a four-storey, white cube - is dedicated to art from 1960 onwards boasting many interesting pieces.

The Fischmarkt

To catch the Fischmarkt on a Sunday you have to get up early - something that is easier said than done given Hamburg's lively nightlife. Those who make it can reward themselves with a fresh crab roll before venturing into the free-for-all. Yet Fischmarkt doesn't solely revolve around fish. Since 1703 practically everything has been sold: flowers, fruit and vegetables, liquorice, eels and souvenirs. Just a few years ago you could even find livestock on offer. The true highlight is the banter that the salesmen and women employ in an earthy Hamburg fashion to tempt the passers-by into making a purchase. Breakfast is available for early birds, tourists and hungry revellers from the previous night in the great hall, which is filled with the sound of a questionable music accompaniment.


This view will cost you nothing? bar a few calories - there's no lift to take you up the 136 steps. Via a wooden flight of steps one can reach the observation platform of one of Hamburg's most unusual office buildings. An astounding EUR 30 million was invested in its construction, but the architect team Bothe Richter Teherani ably implemented its plan. The aesthetics of the building are beaten only by the phenomenal view of the harbour.

SHOPPING in Hamburg

Shopping in Hamburg
Michelle Records

They're still around: the good old record shops - the ones from 1977 that don't only sell music, but also myths in thin paper sleeves. The owners know precisely what the regulars are after, while they do their very best to find the right music for less frequent or first-time customers.   Fair prices and often great offers are available here. What sets Michelle Records apart are the concerts which are held there every now and then - directly in the shop window!


The name says it all. Stoffsüchtig (in Engl.: addicted to fabrics) displays selected fashion from 30 aspiring designers amidst the Hamburg harbour city on 320 square metres and 25 metres exhibition space in a newly erected industrial building. Names like Dawid Tomaszewski or Mila Miyahara may not be on everyone's lips yet but you have probably already heard of Kilian Kerner. But more important in this fashion store is to feel - as the fabrics are focused on here. And so is the wearing comfort.   Customary euro-pallets provide for an extraordinary presentation of the designer pieces and leave no doubt about the stars in here. And if you get hungry you better check out the bistro in the basement. In the daytime they serve regional dishes (including vegetarian options), at night you can order finger food and cold tapas. The right wine will accompany the delicacies. Curtains and light modify the atmosphere of the little dining area with a chambre séparée and especially the bronze and brown shades turn out beautifully.

Trixi Gronau

If you are looking for just the right pen, Trixi Gronau has the answers. Even if you're not looking, you're still likely to leave with something.   Pens and pencils, wrapping paper, timers, jewellery and candles - a colourful mix of items that is sure to surprise any customer expecting to find mere copier paper. The shop is a delight for those who like to poke around and pick out a little something for themselves or others. The fact that many of the items available are actually made by Trixi Gronau herself is an extra treat.

EAT in Hamburg

Seven Seas

The name of the Seven Seas says it all. Breton turbot with cauliflower, chives and wild herb salad or scallops with pomelo salad and coriander vinaigrette: the seven seas are located on the plate and are served at the recommendation of Karlheinz Hauser, one of Hamburg's most renowned gastronomers.   The former Adlon head chef has not only been awarded a Michelin star but also several 5-Star-Diamond-Awards and provides - apart from maritime, classically French cuisine - enough reasons for every gourmand to come onto the Süllberg: refined meat dishes like Bison filet prepared at low temperature, artichokes, tomatoes and potato pralines or a panorama view over the Elbe landscape. In the summer the gourmet terrace under the starry sky is open. If this still isn't enough you might be convinced by the tasteful ambience of the gourmet restaurant with earth and golden shades and exquisite dining culture or the courteous service in one of Hamburg's most elegant neighbourhood.

Curry Pirates

The Curry Pirates love the product they sell - their homemade sausages are served simply with fresh sauces and French fries. Every week sees the unveiling of a new sausage creation, which sometimes requires a touch of daring from the uninitiated. That said, the classics are adventurous in their own right: the standard Bratwurst is filled with diced apple or dried apricots, the lamb Bratwurst comes with a yoghurt-mint sauce and the truffle Bratwurst is served on beans.   Only Germany's most expensive Bratwurst need be ordered in advance - only then will the sausage masterpiece made from truffle and veal be exclusively prepared for your plate.


Enjoy a taste Portuguese of life with fish, wine and sweets! The Portuguese quarter winds around the harbour - more precisely around Dietmar-Koel-Straße.   If you're an enthusiastic eater, then it's certainly worth a visit. Galego is one of the most popular restaurants in the quarter, both with tourists and locals.   Reserve a table in advance to ensure you can enjoy truly wonderful fresh fish. If you forget to do so, then try Sagres just a few doors down the road at number 53.

STAY in Hamburg

Empire Riverside

Fans of the harbour will find it difficult to drag themselves away from the perfect viewpoint at the window. The luxury hotel sits directly on the Elbe and faces St. Pauli and the Landungsbrücken.   The hotel is a wonderful example of modern architecture - star architect David Chipperfield took inspiration from the ocean liners of the 1930s. The almost pompous ballroom and gourmet restaurant Waterkant, where dishes from the famous harbour city are served, are magnificent. The view from the 20up-Bar on the 20th floor is unforgettable. One night in a double room from Euro 130,-.

Nippon Hamburg

Clear lines, straight design and comfortable functionality. Traditional screens, tatami mats and filtered lighting - the Japanese way of relaxation for body and soul.   Fewer knickknacks means a better sense of wellbeing, hence the 42 discreetly and stylishly furnished rooms. The hotel is situated near the Outer Alster providing guests with an ideal jogging route. Double room from EUR 122.

The George-Hotel

Located between St. George and the Outer Alster, The George Hotel draws in guests with British charm and an elegant colonial style. Chesterfield chairs, a view of the English Garden, queen size beds - noble elegance everywhere you look.   But there's more: a classic library, a Marrakesh-style spa, a private dining room, a roof terrace and the restaurant DaCaio, which serves delicious Italian cuisine. One night in a double room from Euro 300,-.
