The Speicherstadt is one of the main attractions in the great harbour tour. The world's largest integrated complex of warehouses was built in 1883, five years before Hamburg received its free port. Since 1991, the unique district has been given historic monument protection.

You can travel the narrow canals in small barges to savour the architectural details if the tide is right. A canal tour with a historic barge like this is an unforgettable experience. Most tours depart from the landing stages in St. Pauli. Groups can even charter a whole barge.

One of the hottest dance clubs in Hamburg can be found on the Reeperbahn. House and techno dominate the sounds at Baalsaal, but all other kinds of electronic music are also represented here. The huge sound system also attracts DJs to the rostrum who are used to bigger dancefloors. Which does not mean that there aren't any promising newcomers on the decks. Early birds be warned: Nothing much happens before 1am.

Uebel & Gefährlich

The imposing overground bunker on Feldstrasse was for many years a hardly used, dirty dark stone block on the outskirts of Heiligengeistfeld. It was gradually revived by various companies. With the arrival of the club Uebel & Gefährlich on the fourth floor, the party and music culture was finally established. Since then Hamburg has gained a location that impresses not just with its location, but also with the great acts that perform here.

Boilerman Bar

Stirred, never shaken. The Boilerman Bar specializes in so-called Highballs. These drinks are made from a base spirit like whisky or gin and a “filler” such as ginger ale, tonic water or similar. He used to stand on the steam engine tender and shovelled coals into the boiler – the so-called “boilerman”. In the bar of the same name in Eppendorf, things are anything else but hot – on the contrary: here, they use a Japanese luxury ice machine that produces over-dimensionally large, spherical ice cubes.

Heavy, sound-absorbant carpeting, dim indirect lighting, bizarrely patterned wallpaper – and as a vanishing point for the eye, a metal lion of huge proportions, which is set into the back wall and guards over the people sitting at the bar. Welcome to the Kingdom of the Lion! Here, you will find cocktails of excellent quality. And when we say cocktails, we don’t mean fruit-and-umbrella decorated fruit-spirit-cream concoctions, but exquisite classics and own creations.

"Where the Beatles played first" is the slogan of Indra at the end of Grosse Freiheit.

Colourful, alternative, creative and enticing: The market street in the Karolinen district in Hamburg shows that it can also hold its own with the big shopping streets and centres in the Hanseatic city, but it is always different despite that!

The Art of Hamburg

"On the Reeperbahn at half past midnight" like the old song goes? Everyone can claim this! More convincing is an "engineer's" shirt with genuine oil stains, sailor's underpants with an anchor printed on them or the Hamburg coffee service in fine bone china. These and other declarations of love from various artists and designers to the "most beautiful city" in Germany are sold in the tiny shop on Ditmar-Koel-Strasse. Right next to where the big ships are moored you can find a Hamburg souvenir that is worth showing the world.

Car sharing is a great option if you want to take a spontaneous trip to the suburbs or have a lot of heavy shopping to do. There are essentially two types of carsharing schemes in Hamburg. With non-stationary carsharing you pick up a car and drop it off at any available parking spot within the rental area. Providers like Share Now and Sixt are parked all over the city. Companies like Cambio, Greenwheels, and Flinkster operate carsharing stations, where you can choose different models. These schemes work better when you book in advance and make more sense for longer-distance travel.
