Travel Tips for visiting Hamburg

Visiting Hamburg, what to do in this beautiful city?

To visit Hamburg is to discover the second largest city in Germany after Berlin.

It is located in the north of the country, not far from the North Sea. A charming destination with a lot to offer. It is a city that is still little known in terms of tourist destinations.
There are museums, theaters, bars, and gourmet restaurants that offer a succulent menu of fish and seafood just the way we like it.

Hamburg is a city dominated by wind and water.

The shore of the Außenalster is perfect for enjoying the sunny days: you'll see swans, sailboats, and beautiful villas.
You won't find a more amazing place than the piers on a stormy autumn day: waves, tugs, huge container ships,...

Hamburg: it was and still is the Great North.
The city has more bridges than Venice and boasts a brand new port city, beach clubs, superb museums, exciting theaters, opera houses such as the Elbphilharmonie, high-end restaurants, and numerous shopping streets.

Hamburg: What to do?

The Kunsthalle is one of the most important museums in the country. 
Visit the Old Masters, including Bertram von Minden's "Wandelaltar" (Meister Bertram), the modern classics are well represented with major works by Max Liebermann, Pablo Picasso, or Emil Nolde. 

In the "Galerie der Gegenwart", a cube-shaped structure by Oswald Mathias Ungers, you can admire works by Gerhard Richter, Jeff Koons or Georg Baselitz.
Smaller temporary exhibitions are held in the "Hubertus-Wald-Forum".
Attend a concert at the Hamburg Philharmonic, the Elbphilharmonie, a beautiful and imposing modern building that opened in January 2017 on the banks of the Elbe River. The concert hall seats 2,100 people.

Hamburg residents call it "the prettiest shopping street in the world." This may be an exaggeration, but the recent renovation has had an amazing effect: whereas pedestrians used to have to fight their way through the cars, they now have priority. Unfortunately, commerce remains firmly rooted in the street. 

In the summer, street parties follow one another. Don't miss the Café Alex at the Alsterpavillon. It still exists but you won't meet intellectuals there anymore, only commuters visiting the city center.
The view from the terrace is still impressive though!

Pedestrians beware! You're strolling along the sidewalk and suddenly a cyclist passes you at full speed without warning.
Note: In Hamburg, adult cyclists are also allowed to ride on many sidewalks and they do so without concern for others. 

Also, be careful when driving: cyclists can ride in the opposite direction on many one-way streets.
