What are the local beers of Hamburg? Are there local craft breweries whose product a beer afficionado should sample? Any favorite beer pubs? Cheers in advance for your help!
astra is one local hamburg beer and a very fine pilsner.
you might also wanna try flensburger pilsner that comes from just north of hamburg.
that is another good quality beer.
RE: RE: Beer!
Be sure to try a Duckstein, by far the best beer that's coming out of Hamburg's own Holsten brewery
RE: RE: Beer!
Local gourmet beers are not an easy find in northern Germany. The city's main brewery is Holsten, owned by Carlsberg and producing mostly standard Pilseners.
A good northern Pilsener (extra hoppy) is Flensburger (as mentioned above) and especially Jever (my favourite). There's also a brewpub close to downtown using some medieval beer recipe if I'm not mistaking: http://www.groeninger-hamburg.de/ .
I think the street is called Gröninger Straße.
RE: RE: Beer!
definitely try a Jever, especially if you like Pilsner type beers. It's very Northern German and rightfully markets the beer with this theme! In my opinion, this is one of the few Pilsner beers with a really distinctive (and very refreshing) taste. The Duckstein mentioned above is more like an ale.
Now if you happen to be around Hamburg University, you might want to visit
Hinkelstein, corner Bundesstraße /An der Verbindungsbahn
Beers to sample there include Ratsherrn, Schlösser Alt, Paulaner Roggenbier und Rauchenfels Steinbier
A big thanks to my fellow beer-lovers. Prost!
Travel Tips for Hamburg
Older Architecture - Town Hall, Altona
Altona was a separate city from Hamburg for most of its existence - in fact, it was in a separate country until 1867! As an enclave of Denmark, Altona had a Scandinavian propriety about it that was lacking in the more salty and sailor-y Hamburg. The "refinement" of Altona is reflected in the fine building that served as its town hall - a marked contrast to the exuberance (some might say vulgarity) of Hamburg's Rathaus.
Bergedorfer Kirche & lovely half-timbered houses
In the old centre of Bergedorf you may see many old halftimbered houses and also that beautiful half-timbered church. Unfortunately the church is not open to the public, but it looks great already from outside. Opposite of that church you will see an old inn, also with a beautiful and ornate facade. A bit outside of the city-centre of Bergedorf there is also an old wind-mill.
You may get easily to Bergedorf by S2 or the regional-train R20. Both are leaving at Hauptbahnhof. Bergedorf is still inside the tarif of section A+B, that is included in the day-tickets of the HVV and the Hamburg-card !
The Hauptbahnof is a well maintained and clean central train station connecting Hamburg with other leading cities in northern Germany. I came here to catch a train for Luebeck - just 45 minutes to the northeast.
The train station is also the hub for a number of local and regional buses. The main airport bus drops its passengers off here.
Inside the terminal are many shops, and a stunning central atrium which well captures the historic spirit of the great trains of Europe. Be sure to check out the station arcade - just behind the main shed. It's a beautiful piece of wrought-iron architecture.
No one particular restaurant...
No one particular restaurant stuck in my mind, but then I favour the pub/restaurant type establishment that is so good in Germany. These type of establishments offer very good home made cooking at reasonable prices in nice environments.
I did find on my second visit that one we had gone to several times on first visit had been turned into an italian restaurant :-(
It is possible to eat very cheaply in Hamburg as in most German cities. They have small establishments called 'Imbis' which are basically take away establishments but with little counters you can stand at to eat. They serve sausagges, burgers and other snack foods.
Again as in many German cities one can also eat well at the main railway station.
Of course for those who really must The dreadful Mc Global Franchise burger chain is also represented - but I suggest going for some food instead :-)
Hamburg is not that city,...
Hamburg is not that city, where you can really find places of interest.
For me was interesting to visit Erotic Museum.
Also I still have the greatest impression after visiting of 'Fantom in Opera'. There is a specially designed building for this musicle in Hamburg. Ticket prices are high (I paid DEM 200) but impressions are much more valuable.
