Top location - directly in Hamburg city center
The Hyperion Hotel Hamburg is located in Amsickstrasse, close to the Elbe, with excellent transport links - you can get here really easily from the main train station and the motorway. Anyone travelling by train should go three minutes by bus to the stop “Spaldingstrasse” ,right by the Hyperion Hotel Hamburg. It takes 25 minutes by taxi from Hamburg Airport (13 km away) to the hotel. There are a number of attractions to visit nearby - for example you can walk around ten minutes to the Deichtorhallen.
The Deichtorhallen complex is one of the biggest exhibition areas for contemporary art and photography in Europe. The two historic buildings with their open steel glass architecture were built between 1911 and 1913 as market halls and then converted. Today they provide the setting for major international exhibitions.
Spectacular views of the city, harbour and surrounding area open up from the 106 metre high platform at “St. Michaelis” cathedral. The “Michel”, as the locals affectionately call it, is one of Hamburg’s most impressive buildings, and has a turbulent history behind it. It was built three times and completely destroyed twice between 1647 and 1912. The church is about 20 minutes away from the Hyperion Hotel Hamburg by bus, with one change, and about ten minutes away by car.
The Elbe Philharmonia is both a musical and architectural landmark of the city. The new glass building with its daring curved roof landscape rises up from the base of the former quay warehouse on the western edge of the harbour city. The concerts take place in two concert halls, and cover the whole repertoire of classical music and alos extend to jazz and world music. You can get from the Hyperion Hotel Hamburg to the concert hall in about 25 minutes on the underground, or less than ten minutes by car.
In the protected buildings of Hagenbeck Wildlife Park you can admire over 210 different kinds of animal and plants from all over the world. You can visit the tropical aquarium next door. The zoo is still owned by the founding family and celebrated its hundredth anniversary in 2007. It is the setting for the famous NDR TV series “Leopard, Seebär & Co.“. To get to the wildlife park, which is in the north of the city, you can take a bus and the underground from the Hyperion Hotel Hamburg for around half an hour, or about 25 minutes by car.
If you want to find out just why Hamburg is regarded as the “Gateway to the World”, take a longboat tour, or visit one of the museum ships in Hamburg harbour. Around 13,000 ships use Germany’s biggest sea port every year. Sea routes connect the port with over 900 other ports in 170 countries. You can get to the jetties in St. Pauli, the starting point for the harbour tours, from the Hyperion Hotel Hamburg in just ten minutes on the underground. It takes around 15 minutes by car.
