Best things to do in Hamburg and sightseeing in Hamburg
Altona Town Hall - Hamburg
St. Nikolai Memorial - Hamburg
Reeperbahn - Hamburg
Undoubtedly one of Hamburg’s best known offerings, my trip to this part of Germany would not have been complete without seeing the infamous Reeperbahn – Hamburg’s red-light district street in St Pauli. We went at 2:30am on a Saturday night, which apparently is the time to go. I have to say that I found the whole setup a lot more civilised than Amsterdam’s equivalent.
St. Petri - Hamburg
State Opera House - Hamburg
We also took a closer look at the new opera house, which has swallowed millions of Euros from Hamburg’s taxpayers and is more than five years behind schedule for completion. The city’s residents are not happy. Tourists can enjoy a guided tour of the construction site though, so at least it’s helping Hamburg tourism to boom.
Speicherstadt - Hamburg
Kaffeemuseum Burg - Hamburg
We visited Hamburg’s Kaffeemuseum Burg (Museum of Coffee). The first thing to note about this place is its extraordinary smell. The scent of roasting beans will fill your nostrils from a good few hundred metres away as you approach the building, and if you’re anything like me, that’s a very welcome prospect indeed.
