Hamburg: Classic Program

Hanseatic city with gateway to the world

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is Germany’s second largest city and the economic and cultural centre of northern Germany. The Port of Hamburg, located on the Elbe River, is one of the largest and most modern ports in Europe and is important for both container and cruise ships. The interesting harbour tours and bus ferries to the musicals on the other side of the river also start from here.

Hamburg’s cityscape is characterised by its close connection to the water and has more bridges than Amsterdam and Venice combined. It is therefore not surprising that many activities take place on or near the water. It is also worth visiting the beautiful riverbeach, where cafés invite you to linger and marvel at the huge container ships or taking a stroll along the Außenalster lake with its magnificent city villas.

The famous Reeperbahn is a popular nightlife and red-light district with a variety of restaurants, pubs and bars. Other highlights of the city worth seeing are the Speicherstadt, the adjacent HafenCity and, of course, Hamburg’s new landmark, the Elbphilharmonie.

City Sightseeing
A visit to the Hanseatic city of Hamburg is always an experience, because hardly any other city has so many different facets.
Hamburg is maritime! The metropolis on the river Elbe with its famous seaport, which is the largest port in Germany, is considered to be the gateway to the world. 
Hamburg is historic! Hamburg’s Speicherstadt for example has been on the UNSECO World Heritage list since 2015. Not to forget Hamburg’s new landmark, the Elbphilarmonie, whose construction has led to many controversial discussions. But history was also made on the Reeperbahn – known to most as the red-light and amusement district. Did you know that the Beatles had their first gig here in the 60s?
Hamburg is so green! More than 60% of the metropolis’ land area consists of green spaces. Many parks and meadows are located near the Alster lake and river. You even have the chance to explore Hamburg’s city centre from the water on its many side canals.
One thing is clear: Hamburg is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany or, to say it very confidently, even one of the most beautiful in the world!

Dinner at Parlament
The restaurant is located in the former council wine cellar of the town hall. Historic ceiling paintings and a brilliantly lit vaulted ceiling make this magnificent hall to something very special. Other highlights include a twelve-meter-long bar and a beautiful terrace with a fountain in the inner courtyard. Modernity meets tradition here, which is also reflected in the menu. In addition to Hamburg classics and German cuisine, international dishes are also served.

Breakfast at Hotel

When visiting Hamburg, there’s one thing you can’t miss: A boat trip through the port of Hamburg. Don’t forget your camera, because there are more than enough photo opportunities.  The panorama of the “Landungsbrücken” jetty with the Michel church tower in the background is a magnificent sight from the water. Experience the contrast between the historic buildings in the Speicherstadt, the modern architecture in the Hafencity and the modern logistics in the container port. It is an unforgettable experience to sail through this “gateway to the world” from a sailor’s perspective.

Lunch at Block Bräu
Located directly at St. Pauli Landungsbrücken on Hamburg’s harbour, the restaurant not only boasts its own brewery, but also a panoramic view of the harbour and the Elbe from the large roof terrace. In addition to hearty dishes from the brewery’s kitchen, prepared from regional products, you can also enjoy the restaurant’s own freshly brewed beers.

VLET Kitchen Party
Experience a dinner in the center of Hamburg that will be remembered for a long time! Stroll from one live cooking buffet station to the next at a cozy kitchen party in good company and look over the shoulder of the professional chefs. Enjoy authentic Hamburg cuisine and discover one or two cooking secrets.

Alster boat trip 
Today you will experience the city centre and its neighbouring districts from a water perspective on Lake Alster and its adjacent canals. Get to know the side of Hamburg, which   visitors got to see in the days of the Hanseatic League, when they first travelled to Hamburg by ship from the north. Discover the beautiful Alsterpark, the noble villas along the shore and enjoy the panorama of the city with its many church towers and bridges in the background.

Lunch at Hofbräu Hamburg Esplanade
The restaurant with Bavarian ambience is located in Hamburg’s city centre and is rustic but cosily furnished. Typical Bavarian specialties can be enjoyed at long tables with benches. Live bands regularly  provide even more a good atmosphere and the unique Bavarian flair.
