Hamburg’s sightseeing attractions close by
From the hotel, you can quickly reach the city centre, with its luxurious department stores and exclusive shops, and enjoy the special flair of this Hanseatic city shaped by water. Visit one of the city’s numerous museums, such as the Museum der Arbeit (museum of work) situated near the railway station or the Hamburger Kunsthalle art museum. A visit to Hamburg’s “Michel”, as St. Michael’s Church is affectionately known, is of course also a must. From its tower, you can enjoy a fantastic view of the city and the port.
Right nearby, the listed Speicherstadt warehouse district inspires visitors with its numerous tourist attractions, such as a historic coffee-roasting establishment, the famous Miniatur Wunderland model railway exhibition or - for those who like to get the shivers - the Hamburg Dungeon. Then, in the evening, the city’s many musicals, theatres and concert halls beckon; so too does the nightlife on the infamous Reeperbahn.
Hamburg’s Speicherstadt warehouse district was once the central transshipment point and storage location for goods from all over the world. Today, the Speicherstadt, which is characterised by tall brick buildings, is ideal for walks along the canals that are spanned by bridges.
St. Michael’s Church in Hamburg, known as “Michel” for short, is regarded as the most significant baroque church in North Germany. This landmark of the Hanseatic city has always had a special significance for seafarers since the church tower can be seen from far away.
Excursion destinations in the surrounding area
If you travel to Hamburg and have a few days’ time to spend, it is worth making a day trip to Germany’s only deep-sea island of Heligoland during the summer months: A daily catamaran service is available to take you there directly from the Port of Hamburg.
However, the immediate surrounding area also awaits you with delightful excursion destinations, such as the ship welcoming station in Wedel. The towns of Lüneburg and Stade and the city of Lübeck are charming destinations that are worth visiting from Hamburg. They endear themselves to guests with their well-preserved architecture and townscapes characterised by the old North German brick construction typical of the region.
