Hamburg Holiday Packages

If you're looking to float down a canal and take in the rich history of a German port city, a Hamburg holiday is the perfect choice. Located along the banks of the River Elbe, Hamburg is home to one of the largest ports in the world. This creates some serious buzz—a feeling of excitement that can only come from a place that brings together people from all over the world. Cities like Frankfurt, Munich and Berlin may get most of the tourism press, but Hamburg provides travellers an opportunity to experience a different type of German getaway.

Things to Do in Hamburg

Museums are a big draw for many visitors who book Hamburg holiday packages. Art aficionados should start by checking out the Hamburg Kunsthalle, which features works from the famous Dutch painter Rembrandt, for a taste of 17th century European art. After that, enjoy a still more visceral experience at the Hamburg Dungeon in the historic Speicherstadt and Kontorhaus districts. This excursion can include a tour of a torture chamber, which is (relatively) painless.

If you'd prefer to keep things on the lighter side during your Hamburg holiday, check out a comedy theatre production in the St. Pauli district along Reeperbahn's entertainment mile. Weather permitting, tour the historic waterfront warehouse district along the Port of Hamburg. If you'd rather glide along, rent a rowboat to explore the winding canals that weave through the city. Before you leave for your Hamburg trip, book one of Wotif’s Hamburg car hire options for a change of scenery during a road trip to Cologne, one of Germany's oldest cities.

Shopping, Dining & Nightlife

If you have souvenir-hungry friends and family at home, stop by the St. Pauli district for unique shops such as a reggae record shop and uber-hip art galleries. The Eppendorf district, along Eppendorfer Baum and Eppendorfer Landstrasse, features indoor and open-air markets that sell everything from port wine to candy.

Once you’ve got your hands full of Hamburg holiday deals, head on over to the fish auction hall in the Ottensen neighbourhood to binge on freshly caught fish. German cuisine is unlike any other, so indulge in all of the labskaus you can get your hands on. This classic spiced pork and potato dish is a German specialty; for more local delicacies, stop at the stands in Reeperbahn.

When the sun goes down, head back to the entertainment districts of Reeperbahn and Eimsbuttel for taverns, pubs and bars. Famous international artists and DJs stop by to spin their favourite tunes for their German fans. If you visit one of the oldest taverns in the Neustadt neighbourhood, you are likely to find live Bavarian music to enjoy as you sample beer styles from Alts to Dunkels or Pils.
