These two beautiful lakes surrounded by parks are ideal for a break. Have a picnic, jog along the water, or take a boat out. At Alster Lakes, you’ll forget that you’re in the middle of a city.
The Port of Hamburg has an important economic role in the city and is still today one of the busiest ports worldwide. Take a stroll along Germany’s “Gateway to the World” gorgeous historic harbor and top it off with a snack from the famous fish market.
Harbor Piers (Landungsbruecken)
Stroll along the Landungsbruecken to watch the ships come and go, then hop on a ferry and enjoy an inexpensive and picturesque ride across the waters en route to your next destination.
Hamburg is infamous for its grey, cold winters. If you can, it’s best to plan your visit between April and September. Once the weather improves, the city truly transforms – moods soar, streetside cafés fill up, and the parks and lakes once again become bustling hang-out spots.
Known for its gigantic portions and very reasonable prices, the restaurant Erika’s Eck near the Schlachthof has been a favorite for locals and tourists alike for over 30 years now. This is the perfect spot to feast on some original German grub and if you’re out on the town, come here after midnight for its famous €1 sandwiches – available until 9am!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Great experience with exceptional guide!
Our group of 9 people took the St. Pauli tour at 23 o’clock on a Friday night. All of us were very excited, and I would definitely recommend. Our guide, Kai, was exceptional! He was truely a local and gave us an honest and very inspiring impression of the city. We ended up in an area full of bars perfect for continuing our night out. Thank you Kai, for a great experience!

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐Fun, and different sightseeing, with a very dedicated guide
A guided tour, which turned out to be a lot of good fun. A different way of seeing other parts of Hamburg, which you may not be inclined to see as a first choice. A very forthcoming and dedicated guide. This tour will make you smile- highly recommendable!!
Hamburg: Sightseeing Tour with ‘Scuddy’ reviewed by Kirsten
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Excellent content and presentation. Both Guides were knowledgeable.
It was really excellent that we could split the two activities over two days, as there was no time left to do the boat trip when we got back from the hop-on-hop-off bus trip. We tend to use the bus as one trip, in order to gain an overview of the whole city. We rarely tend to use the bus more than once. Hamburg was great and the bus was great too.
Hamburg Combo: Hop On Hop Off & Water Ticket / Harbor Cruise reviewed by Jürg
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Tour matched ad. Boat has toilets. Guide has accent, understandable.
The staff was friendly and helpful, and the tour was as described in the ads. There were toilets on the boat, which was quite convenient. The English-speaking tour guide was a German man with a German accent, not a native speaker of English. His English was reasonably good. The loudspeaker was a loudspeaker, meaning it had a bit of static or distortion, although it wasn’t bad as loudspeakers go. The combination made the narration a bit difficult for some people in our group to understand. I didn’t have trouble with it, but I have a lot of experience with German accents. Still, having a tour in English was very nice.
