Hamburg in a Day

by hb_capri

Hi Guys,
I'll be Hamburg next month for a conference.After the conference I've squeezed in a day for sightseeing.I'd like to see as much as I can.I don't know what attractions to include and what not to.This is where i need help.It'd be great if you guys could tell me what is an absolute 'must-see' as per your choice.

Thanks in advance
HB

P.S- I'm not that into churches and museums

- Explore the (upscale) shopping area between Rathaus (townhall), Jungfernstieg and Gänsemarkt. (Public transport: Rathaus, Jungfernstieg, Gänsemarkt).

- Visit the harbour (Public transport: Landungsbrücken). Perhaps cross river Elbe through the old Elbtunnel (build 1911) by foot. It's fun.

- Explore the Speicherstadt (Meßberg or Rödingsmarkt, then walk to river Elbe).

- If you happen to like red-light districts: walk down Reeperbahn, Herbertst. and Große Freiheit (Reeperbahn).

- Off the beaten path: Take the S-Bahn to Blankenese, visit the "Treppengebiet" with its picturesque buildings (a mere 5-minute-walk away from the S-Bahn station), see the beach at river Elbe.

Thank you so much.
Have done the redlight district thing in Amsterdam...so guess I'll skip that one:)
BTW is there a submarine that is open to public in the harbor?

Re: Hamburg in a Day

Yes, there is a subway, a Russian (non-nuclear) one, which can be visited, although admission is a bit on the steep side: 8 Euro. At least one room, the control room I believe, can only be visited with a guide (3 Euro extra).
I'm not sure if there are tours in English, but I doubt it.

Getting there: Take the subway to Landungsbrücken (harbour) and then change for the "Hummelbahn", a red double-decker bus. The bus leaves only hourly in winter (from Landungsbrücken 1), so check for departure times first, and then do the sightseeing at the harbour.
Ask the bus driver to sell you a ticket to the "U-Boot Museum" only - not a whole seightseeing tour. He/she will charge you EUR 2.50.

Re: Hamburg in a Day

Oh right I forgot. While I haven't stayed at any of the hotels you mentioned, the Grand Elysee is closer to the Congress Center, and from what I can tell from pictures, rooms look more modern. So my choice would be the Grand Elysee.

Travel Tips for Hamburg

Where Elbe is getting deeply in the land...

by AndyRG

Europe's second largest port (the 1st is the one of Rotterdam) offers many different harbour tours. The fish market at the oldest open-air market, dating back to 1703, is a "must" (Fish Auction Hall). The old Elbe tunnel is 24 m below the river, there are two tunnels which lead at the southside of Elbe.

Enjoying genuine Italian fare

by fairestmom

While in Hamburg we visited this wonderful little Italian eatery located next door to Eppendorfer Weg 161. The owner, Joseppi (originally from Italy), was very friendly and gracious. All menu items are prepared in traditional Italian manner by Joseppi. This is a fun and out of the way place to enjoy good food. Expense: Moderate

"Blue Monday" on the Red Fireboat

by yooperprof about Das Feuerschiff

Next time I'm in Hamburg, I promise I'll try to arrange a Vt meet-up at the Feuerschiff (Fireboat) for one of their "Blue Monday" jazz jams. This is a fun and unusual place to relax and enjoy some fine musicians keeping a vibrant tradition alive. And no cover charge!

The Feuerschiff is an old fire department vessel that formerly served the Hamburg Harbor. It's been carefully refitted as a hotel, restaurant and bar. Perhaps this wouldn't be the best place for a convention of basketball players, but unless you are exceptionally tall you'll be very comfortable here.

A pleasant place for a bite.

by planxty about City Corner restaurant.

This is a bar / restaurant in a part of town with some less salubrious watering holes. The decor is wood panelled.

Service is friendly and quick and the food hearty, home-made German.

Relatively inexpensive and a nice place for a German meal in an area where the restaurants are predominantly foreign. The shnitzel with mushroom sauce and sauteed potatoes was well-done and a portion to satisfy the hungriest trencherman.

Stick in the Ocean Liner

by Maria81

For me, Chilehaus is one of Hamburg's most interesting buildings from an architectural perspective. With stark and clear lines and unusual shapes, it was also a nice place to practice urban photography. Views from the east are best, and the lighting during the evenings really does it justice.

The building is famous for its top, which is reminiscent of a ship's prow, and the facades, which are curved for a large part but then meet at a very sharp angle at one of the corners of the building.

The name comes courtesy of the magnate H.B.Sloman, who made his fortune in saltpeter trade from Chile, so Chilehaus it was. The man responsible for the striking design is Fritz Hoger, who designed the building in early 20th century.
