Many people say it is Germany’s most beautiful city. That’s why we call it the “pearl” of the north. There are many sides to Hamburg, from the historic city centre to the ultra-modern harbour city, from the traditional fish market to the trendy Schanzenviertel area. We’ve kept an eye and ear open to put together a list of attractive, entertaining companies for all the family. So just summon the family council, plan your colourful mix of entertainment and then enjoy your stay in Hamburg. Why not let Hamburg surprise you with its diversity!
What could be more exciting than discovering the history of the city of Hamburg together? And the easiest way to do that is on one of the legendary double decker buses. In the harbour, not just the little ones will look on in amazement: you can watch the little boats and the great ships, and even step on-board some of them. A trip on a small barge or a big steamer is an experience in itself.
A visit to this miniature wonderland in Hamburg is an absolute must for all the family. Europe’s biggest model railway awaits. The large “Knuffingen Airport “, where you can even watch take-offs and landings, isn’t just impressive for fans of planes and engineering.
