10 things to do in Hamburg

  1. See how Hafencity is developing with its cost exploding Elbphilharmonie. It’s only a 10 minutes walk from Hauptbahnhof and next to Speicherstadt . In the neighborhood: the impressive Chile Haus.
  2. Climb up Michel (St Michaelis church tower), the city’s landmark, and get an idea of the city’s layout
  3. Walk all around the Alster lake in the middle of the city (approx. 90 minutes)
  4. Take a passenger ferry from St. Pauli Landungsbrücken to Teufelsbrück (You will need to change boat in Finkenwerder). Walk all the way back along the Elbe with plenty of beautiful spots.
  5. Take a tour in and around Rathaus (city hall); more rooms than buckingham palace?
  6. Hang out in Schanzenviertel, too trendy to be true … Not far from here: Jimmy Elsass, the best Flammkuchen place in the world./li>
  7. Have coffee in Cafe Gnosa, enjoy the best cake and the friendliest gays in town
  8. Visit Kunsthalle (fine arts and contemporary) and Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe (applied arts, photography)
  9. Fischmarkt, Sunday (very early) morning market
  10. A night out at Reeperbahn. Aoid big tourist-traps on main road and look for more cosy and loungy places in sidestreets or go to near-by Golden Pudel Club for alternative music and drinks
