Due to this past port success, the city has an interesting history, and although it suffered badly in the war, there are still lots of history and heritage that still exist. One highlight is the Town Hall, this imposing structure rebuilt at the end of 19th century which has more rooms than Buckingham Palace and offers guided tours, giving visitors a glimpse into it true grandeur. Furthermore spend time simply exploring the Old Town where you will see lots of the city’s attractions including the Chilehause, a truly spectacular building.

Hamburg also has a lot of culture to offer with one of the world’s biggest musical offerings and fantastic museums including the incredibly detailed Miniatur Wunderland. What’s more with so much of the city covered in parks and canal, it is easy to escape from the bustling of city life here with the large Alsterpark and Alter Elbpark being among the best. Or alternatively, if you choose to travel just a few miles outside the city centre to the quaint former fishing village of Blankenese where you can explore its picturesque hiking trails or beach.

Walk along the Jungfernstieg, a picturesque promenade with fantastic stores, it's a real favourite with both tourists and locals. In fact the water ways and harbour area of the city have a huge number of attractions and landmarks waiting to be discovered. The city’s outstanding new theatre, the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is well worth a visit whether its to hear its amazing acoustics, attend a tour or simply to see the superb building itself.
