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

Get nautical

Being a port city, Hamburg even has more bridges than Venice. Go on a cruise around the Alster Lakes in the heart of the city to see how the founding fathers spent their money, take a trip around the regenerated Hafencity port district, home of the magnificent Elbphilharmonie Hamburg building, or visit the famous Fish Market.

Explore St Pauli

St Pauli is chock full of shops, cafes and boutique hotels. Its liberal attitude is represented by its football team FC St. Pauli, whose fan-focused owners and skull-and-crossbones logo lends them cult status around the world. Catch a game to get a taste of real fandom.

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.

Where to eat in Hamburg

Parlament (German)

A huge dining area underneath Hamburg’s town hall, this atmospheric restaurant is the place to get a taste of traditional German food, from the pizza-style Flammkuchen to Labskaus, a mash of pickled beef brisket, young herring, beetroot, onions and potatoes. Hearty and homely, the menu is loved by Hamburg locals, which is all the recommendation you need.

Fischereihafen (Seafood)

Given that Hamburg's a port city, you’d expect some impressive fish restaurants, and Fischereihafen just about tops the lot. The exterior is low-key, but once inside, this is a grand, elegant dining room with spectacular views across the harbour. The daily menu changes depending on what Chef Jens Klunker spies at the fish market each day.

Bullerei (Steakhouse)

An incredibly popular steak restaurant run by Jamie Oliver cohort Tim Mälzer, Bullerei’s surroundings – a stripped down former livestock hall with exposed brickwork and piping – makes it an atmospheric destination for a Saturday night. Other dishes such as pumpkin tart and rabbit leg make this an impressively versatile establishment.

Places to stay in Hamburg

Gastwerk

This is one of Hamburg entrepreneur Kai Hollmann’s design hotels (he’s also responsible for 25 Hours and The George) but the combination of stylish, loft-style accommodation and incredible prices is virtually unbeatable. Staying in a former gas works has never been so enticing. The restaurant Mangold is also impressive.

The George Hotel

A British-themed hotel has to work in Hamburg – the home of the early Beatles. And The George Hotel is far from tacky. Instead expect a colonial-themed experience with 118 rooms in an area fast becoming one of Hamburg’s coolest. Elegant and design-conscious, it also boasts a rooftop lounge looking out onto the Alster.

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. With a popular steak restaurant – or (m)eatery, as they call it – and spa, Side is a real find near the shopping areas and Alster Lakes.

Wenckstern / Hotrod Citytour, Hamburg

Maik Wenckstern had his eureka moment while messing about on a self-drive lawnmower. It’s probably fair to say that he’s in the minority in that respect. Read more Wenckstern / Hotrod Citytour, Hamburg
