The sights of Hamburg in the vicinity

Ideal city location

Alster Arcades - HYPERION Hotel Hamburg

directly in the city center

From the HYPERION Hotel Hamburg, you can quickly reach the city center with its luxurious department stores and exclusive stores and enjoy the special flair of this Hanseatic city shaped by the water. Visit one of the city's many museums, such as the "Museum der Arbeit", which is located near the train station, or the "Hamburger Kunsthalle". A visit to the Hamburger Michel, as St. Michael's Church is affectionately known, is of course also a must. From its tower, you can enjoy a fantastic view over the city and the harbor.

Attractions of the Speicherstadt

In the immediate vicinity of the HYPERION Hotel Hamburg, the listed Speicherstadt historical warehouse district offers numerous tourist attractions, such as a historic coffee roasting plant, the famous Miniatur Wunderland or - for those who like a scare - the Hamburg Dungeon. And in the evening, the city's many musicals, theaters and concert halls as well as the nightlife on the notorious Reeperbahn will entice you.

Excursion destinations

If you are traveling to Hamburg and have a few days to spare, it is worth taking a day trip during the summer months to Germany's only high seas island, Heligoland, where there is a daily catamaran connection directly from the port of Hamburg.

However, the immediate surroundings also offer beautiful excursion destinations, such as the ship welcome facility in Wedel. Lüneburg, Lübeck and Stade are enchanting towns that are well worth a visit from Hamburg. They will captivate guests with their well-preserved architecture and typical regional townscape in old North German brick construction.
