Port of Hamburg, Hamburg

4.6
#1 of 27 in Parks in Hamburg
Often called the country's Gateway to the World, Port of Hamburg is Germany's largest port and one of the world's busiest. The harbor covers about 74 sq km (26 sq mi), taking advantage of the branching Elbe River. Visit the port, which is almost as old as the city itself, to see how many of the old warehouses have changed into contemporary museums, bars, shops, restaurants, and hotels. Ultramodern buildings stand right next to well-preserved pearls of 19th-century architecture. Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Hamburg trip simple and quick.

  • The port of Hamburg's back great, its size considerably. However, you have to be here also quite steadfast against the onrushing wind. The port however perfectly suited for great pictures and wallpapers.

  • After having covered the area of the Harbour, the Speicherstadt, beautifully restored, take a boat and enjoy the Elbphilharmonie from the sea: that is where the building is most impressive! The spectacle of huge ships door-containers is also amazing! Do not miss!

  • The sunset on the harbour is just super nice. Especially if you like to take pictures you have here super motifs. With the Elphi came another highlight added recently!

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
