The best things to do in Hamburg

Hamburg is a bohemian and cosmopolitan city full of interesting things to see. The Port is one of the most popular places to visit in Hamburg that still holds a lot of symbolism for its inhabitants. It's a set of canals, bridges and docks which you can explore and see the incredible ships docked in the area. These tours take place between the months of March to November around midday. 

Heading towards downtown, you'll find the Hamburg Town Hall in the Altstadt neighborhood near Lake Alster. It's an impressive building and one of the most unique attractions in Hamburg. Nearby, you'll also find the Deutsches Schauspielhaus, which means House of German Drama, and is the leading theatre in the city. Another of the most interesting things to see in Hamburg is Speicherstadt, one of the Europe's largest industrial complexes built in a neo-Gothic style with red brick architecture. It's home to a lot of top Hamburg activities like several museums and the catacombs of Hamburg. During the walking tour, you'll find out about the area's industrial activity. 

However, the city's most modern area is HafenCity, located in Hamburg-Mitte and home to big buildings, restaurants and shops. It's scheduled to be completed in 2025. Another of the best Hamburg attractions is Reeperbahn, a picturesque street in the St. Pauli district in the heart of the city. It's known for its restaurants, nightclubs, bars, clubs, sex shops, brothels, strip clubs and a quirky Sex Museum. 

There are also plenty of things to do in Hamburg for art and culture fans. Visit the Hamburg Kunsthalle, a gallery featuring works by important German painters, French Impressionists and Andy Warhol. Or try the Panoptikum Museum which houses one of the oldest and largest wax figure collection in Germany.
