Flights to Hamburg

According to locals, catching a flight to Hamburg means travelling to Germany’s 'Gateway To The World'. Just a few hours spent in this thriving, multicultural and pleasantly liberal port city confirms that the world is coming to Hamburg, enticed by its quality of living, historic city centre and attitude to life. Hamburgers like to have fun.

Hamburg is where The Beatles learned their trade, and maintains its kudos as a home to alternative culture, with everything from rock music to a famous football team, St Pauli.

The docks – still the second biggest in Europe – are now populated by new hotels, restaurants, art galleries and the majestic Elbphilharmonie Hamburg concert hall. Old warehouses have been refurbished and become tourist attractions in their own right. Meanwhile, around the Alster Lakes, the mercantile money on which Hamburg was built is evident in the town hall, the Michelin-starred restaurants, the villas and boutiques.

Hamburg’s a vibrant, buzzy, city and many of eateries reflect that. Parlament’s massive dining hall is the place to try local delicacies amid locals. Similarly, Bullerei’s location in a former livestock hall is a great place to sample steaks from local producers. And of course, being a port city, there are plenty of scintillating seafood options too, from the refined surroundings of Fischereihafen and Se7en Oceans to the cooler, converted warehouse chic of Vlet.

And just because the city has an industrial heritage as a port city doesn't mean that its hotels are similarly gritty. In fact, many have taken cues from the city’s past and transformed old buildings into wonderfully atmospheric places to stay: East is a conversion of an old iron foundry, while Gastwerk had a former life, as the name suggests, as a gas works.

These design-conscious hotels make for a unique stay – in fact for all the grand, palatial charms of Hotel Atlantic Kempinski, it’s easy to make a case for East being among the best hotels in Hamburg. Even the new build hotels have got in on the act – 25hours HafenCity has a hip and stylish nautical theme, while Side’s designer lighting is an attraction in itself. There aren’t many places that have such interesting and unique places to stay, which is a reflection on the charms of Hamburg itself.

In fact, you could say a stay in Hamburg is all things to all people – refinement, excitement, history and modernity all in a place that remains very much a working city. It’s certainly a gateway to all that is good about Germany, and a reminder that a city can reinvent itself without losing sight of what made it great in the first place.

What to do in Hamburg

Understand Hanseatic history

Hamburg is a great place to understand how the independent cities in what is now Northern Germany became so prosperous in the late middle ages. Start by visiting St Michaelis Church for an amazing view of Hamburg, and take in the ostentatious Rathaus (Town Hall), which makes a beautiful backdrop for its famous Christmas markets.

Shop at the Alsterpavillion

The Alsterpavillion or ALEX at Jungfernstieg – a promenade on the waters of the Inner Alster – is the perfect place to unwind after a day’s shopping at the nearby department stores and boutiques. The new lakeside terrace has events throughout the year as people take time out from their retail therapy to gaze out onto the water.

Learn about the history of The Beatles

Hamburg is where the Beatles cut their teeth as a small band from Liverpool. Book onto 'The Beatles In Hamburg' tour to understand why John Lennon once said, “I might have been born in Liverpool – but I grew up in Hamburg.”

Where to eat in Hamburg

Haerlin (French)

For refinement, head to the two Michelin-starred Haerlin in the magnificently located Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten. Chef Christoph Rüffer creates an elaborate and sophisticated take on French cuisine; try the saddle of Limousin lamb with carrots, cream of chickpeas and lemon and Moroccan salad.

Vlet (German)

A gourmet restaurant in the refurbished warehouse district, Vlet’s menu of German dishes is as interesting as the open steel beams and vaulted brick ceilings that make up the atmospheric dining room. Try the shrimp, which is delivered straight from the boat to the restaurant – you can’t get fresher than that.

Se7en Oceans (Seafood/ French)

The most centrally located of Hamburg’s Michelin-starred establishments, Se7en Oceans specialises in seafood. But since 2012, Chef Frédéric Morel and his team have also offered a range of creative French and Mediterranean dishes such as pigeon and rabbit. With a stunning view over the Alster, it’s one of Hamburg’s premier establishments.

Side

Another comfortable hotel for design lovers, Side even has a famous lighting designer – Robert Wilson’s work gives the communal areas a sense of style and luxury.

Hotel Atlantic Kempinski

Of all the grand five-star hotels in Hamburg, the Atlantic Kempinski is always popular – not least because scenes from the James Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies were filmed here. Refurbished and with a prime address right on the Alster, it’s a palatial, luxurious and effortlessly comfortable hotel.
