HAMBURG AS A DESTINATION...
As Germany’s second-largest city, it is home to the country’s most prominent port thus earning its historical label; ‘The gateway to the world’. It is this very port which established its role as a centre of international trade in the late 19th and early 20th centuries as well as its Unesco World Heritage site recognition today.
Top sights to see while you’re here include:
- Fischmarkt - Every Sunday some 70,000 locals and tourists descend upon the famous fish market in ST Pauli. Established in 1703, it is famed for its Marktschreier (Market Crier) who hawk their goods loudly to passing customers. The market is home to a number of live bands adding to the venue’s authentic German atmosphere.
- St Michaelis Church - An unmissable landmark towering over the port and city at 106 metres. From here you can enjoy breath-taking views of Hamburg and the surrounding countryside.
- Hamburg Town Hall - Noted as the most iconic landmark in the city, the Town Hall is worth visiting simply to admire its impressive architecture that is home to the city’s parliament and senate.
- Miniatur Wunderland - Pay a visit to the world’s largest model railway system, with 930 trains see realistic operations entirely controlled by computers comprising of ‘day and night’ scenes which change every 15 minutes.
