Flights to Hamburg

According to locals, catching a flight to Hamburg means traveling 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 center, and attitude to life. Hamburgers like to have fun.

Hamburg is where the Beatles learned their trade and maintains its reputation as a home to alternative culture, with everything from rock music to a famous soccer 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, Michelin-starred restaurants, villas, and boutiques.

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

But 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 converted iron foundry, and 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 gotten 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

Explore St. Pauli

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

Get nautical

Being a port city, Hamburg has even 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.

Go to the beach

This might sound odd, given that Hamburg is 110 km from the sea. But in summer, the beach lounge at Strand Pauli is incredibly popular—there is warm sand by the River Elb; Elbstrand is a wonderful place to relax, watch the big cruise ships, and have a barbecue.

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 homey, the menu is loved by Hamburg locals, which is all the recommendation you need.

Se7en Oceans (Seafood/ French)

The most centrally located of Hamburg’s Michelin-starred establishments, Se7en Oceans specializes 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.

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!

Places to stay in Hamburg

The George Hotel

A British-themed hotel has to work in Hamburg, which was 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.

East

East is an immaculate conversion of an old iron foundry. Boasting a spectacular three-story restaurant and luxurious rooms that combine stylish, Eastern-influenced design with cozy charm, it's a vibrant venue as well as a retreat from Hamburg’s famous party scene, just a few streets away.

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
