Sightseeing in Hamburg
Here we would like to introduce you briefly and succinctly to the most important sights of Hamburg and its surroundings.
Außenalster & Binnenalster
A stay in Hamburg necessarily includes the Outer Alster and Inner Alster. The Outer Alster is ideal for walks. The 7.5 km long circuit is just as popular with joggers.
Sailing ships, small barges and a variety of other water sports enthusiasts can be found on the water.
Especially at sunsets, this place offers a picture you shouldn't miss. Green areas, cafés and many other seating options offer a place to relax. Two bridges, the Kennedy Bridge and the Lombards bridge separate the inland and the Outer Alster.
The Jungfernstieg, one of the hippest promenades in Hamburg, runs along the southern shore of the Binnenalster.

The Krameramtsstuben are a closed row house settlement not far away from the "Michels", the St. Michaelis Church. There are small shops where you can buy souvenirs, cafés and the restaurant Krameramtsstuben. The small alley invites you to stroll and linger. The half-timbered houses are by the way the oldest closed terraced housing estate in Hamburg.
The Landungsbrücken (a floating landing stage for passenger ships) is located in the St. Pauli district of Hamburg and belongs to the tourist hot spots in Hamburg.
But this is also a popular destination for the Hamburgers. From the landing bridges, the ships that take the musical visitors to the musical grounds, as well as many other passenger ships for harbour tours or, for example, the famous lighting tour through Speicherstadt, will depart.
The Hafencity and Hamburg's fish market are also easily accessible.
This is also the entrance to the "Alte Elbtunnel", which leads to the other side of the Elbe. This is highly recommended if you want to observe Hamburg from a different perspective.
The St. Michaelis Church, or rather the "Michel", is Hamburg's great landmark. After being built three times and destroyed twice, it is still one of the city's most imposing buildings.
The 106-metre-high viewing platform is particularly spectacular and offers a unique view over Hamburg. A visit to Hamburg is a must for a stay in Hamburg, more information can be found here.
