Must See


The newest and most spectacular addition to the waterfront area is the Elbphilharmonie, the city's most important cultural venue. It has been designed by Swiss architects Herzog & de Meuron on top of the Kaispeicher, an old Warehouse from the 60s used to store Cocoa beans. The newly designed building includes a concert hall with 2100 seating and a chamber music hall for 550 persons, but that is not all there is to it.

The Elbphilharmonie, itself, is the central attraction of a city-like complex which contains, otherwise, a public plaza, where you can enjoy great panorama view of the port and the city from a height of 37 meters.

Must Do


A lovely pedestrian trail takes in the old 19th-century Warehouse District, the Speicherstadt, with its continuous lines of tall brick buildings once used to store tobacco, coffee, dried fruit, and spices. Built up from 1883 to 1927, it's reputedly the world's largest such warehouse district and was in 2015 designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The adjacent Traditionsschiffhafen/Sandtorhafen harbor lines the peninsula and is a great place to see vintage tall ships at their docks.

Must DO


You can find almost anything at the Hamburg Fish Market, Fish, fruit, flowers, clothing and souvenirs. This market place is open from about 5am Every Sunday morning - and has a great atmosphere, with market stalls selling wicker fruit baskets with fresh fruit or other tasties. To attract customers, the market barkers out-shout each other with calls that turn into a weekly spectacle for tourists and locals. Not every visitor is there to haul home baskets of fresh produce. Some come to feast on an early morning fish sandwich or simply to enjoy the lively atmosphere over beautiful views of the harbor.

Others dance in the Fischauktionshalle: inside the century-old building near Fish Market, numerous rock and jazz band keep spirits high with live music, attracting party-goers for one last dance after dawn.
