Hamburg Attractions and Activities Everyone can Enjoy

Getting ready for a holiday is a job in itself. Whether you’re heading to Hamburg with your partner or with the whole family, you need to make sure you’ve packed your passport, sorted out your travel insurance, got the plane tickets and know where you’re heading. To make things easier for you, why not plan your holiday activities ahead of time?


Hamburg is a hub of culture and one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. The Port of Hamburg is known as the “Gateway to the World” but you don’t need to look outside Hamburg for things to do as there’s more than enough to do within the city to make a visit to Germany’s second largest city a great way to spend your summer holiday.


Hamburg is a cultural centre for Germany. After London and New York, it’s the world’s third largest musical metropolis. Theatres like the Thalia that’s situated in the heart of the city and the Allee, which focuses on music theatre from the 16th to 19th century, offer shows that you can’t get in London, while the Theater im Hafen is the place to go for contemporary work like Disney’s The Lion King.


If you want to immerse yourself in the city’s history, why not check out some of the city’s museums? Hamburger Kunsthalle is one of Germany’s largest and best museums. Its collection takes visitors through seven hundred years of German history. The Altona Museum is a popular destination for families because it offers activities for children and guided tours that make the exhibits come alive. Car lovers will want to visit the Prototyp Museum in Hamburg’s HafenCity where a collection of 50 very unusual vehicles are held, while chocoholics should take a trip to Chocoversum which is a permanent 1,200 square-metre exhibition dedicated to all things chocolate.

Free activities

Although the entry prices of the museums featured here aren’t out of reach for most families, there’s nothing like a free activity. A walk through the Old Elbe Tunnel that passes underneath the Elbe has become a favourite activity for visitors to the historic city since the new tunnel was built half a mile away from the old one. When you get to the other side have your camera ready for pictures of the Hamburg skyline. The Stadtpark is another place you can go for free. There you will find beautifully designed gardens and plenty of green spaces for the kids to run around in.
