Germany’s second-largest city, Hamburg is a modern port city centered around its harbor, a UNESCO world heritage site. Visitors to cosmopolitan Hamburg will find a place rooted in its sea-trade heritage but very much a part of present-day Europe.
Guests at our Hamburg hotel can start exploring with a walk along the waterside promenade or boat tour around the harbor. Then, it’s on to St. Michaelis Cathedral, whose spire dominates the Hamburg skyline. Hamburg’s Kunsthalle Museum has one of the world’s finest collections of medieval art and its contemporary art collection is notable as well. And no visit to Hamburg would be complete without stopping at the open-air Fischmarkt, which despite its name sells more than fish.
Grosse Bleichen and Neuer Wall are Hamburg’s two main shopping streets, but upscale Jungfernstieg is the place to window shop or buy luxury goods. From our Hamburg hotels, you have easy access to each area.
If you’re staying at your Hamburg accommodations with children, be sure to take them to the city’s zoo, considered one of the finest in Europe. They’ll also love Miniatur Wunderland, the world’s largest model railway. Hamburg has much to offer visitors of all ages.
I first started going to the Renaissance Hotel Hamburg in 2008 when I stayed there... --aubdog1967
