Hamburg – Broadway of the North

Offering top-class entertainment, moving stories and catchy tunes, Hamburg’s musicals attract 2 million visitors every year. Hamburg is the world’s third-biggest musical city just after New York and London, and an end to this musical boom is not in sight.
Maritime Hamburg

Two rivers shape the face of Hamburg. One wakens a yearning for the sea, the other for home: with its port that never sleeps, the Elbe is the city’s main artery leading out into the North Sea; and the Alster, which forms the lake in the city centre, represents the heart of Hamburg.
A perfect Hamburg weekend

The Elbe, the Alster, the port, St Pauli – and of course fish rolls and Franzbrötchen pastry: there are ample reasons for a city break in Hamburg. While a weekend might give you limited scope for exploring a city, there is still a lot to be discovered in Hamburg even within two days.
Shopping in Hamburg

Luxury shops on grand boulevards, a relaxed stroll through elegant shopping arcades, original, young fashion directly from designers, quirky antiques from Hamburg's rich past. Or maybe you would prefer eco-friendly garments straight from manufacturers and small specialist shops? In any event, when you go shopping in Hamburg, you are spoiled for choice.
Cruise Metropolis Hamburg

Over the past few years, Hamburg has become one of Northern Europe’s major cruise destinations, and Hamburg’s locals are real fans of these queens of the ocean – which can clearly be seen whenever the magnificent “Queen Mary 2” calls at the port of Hamburg. The biennial Hamburg Cruise Days, as well as spectacular ship launching ceremonies in the port make Hamburg the cruise capital of the north.
