Explore Hamburg with Elegant Resorts
Straddling the banks of the River Elbe, the handsome port of Hamburg is Germany’s most affluent city. Take note of the impressive neo-Renaissance town hall, the grand millionaire homes along the Elbchausee, the prestigious line-up of sophisticated stores along Neuer Wall and the huge urban development at Harbour City – all examples of the city’s success story.
Explore the streets of Hamburg’s many colourful districts, where you can dine around the globe and party until the early hours, if you wish. Like other major cities there are some excellent museums, fantastic art collections, ballet, theatre and music halls, including the Elbphilharmonie, expected to open in 2017 as Hamburg’s flagship concert hall.
Amid the hustle and bustle are leafy parks and a pair of lovely lakes, creating a lush, inner-city oasis for fun and relaxation. Enjoy a waterside lunch or take to the water by paddle boat or steamer.
Feel the city’s strong, nautical spirit and plan your trip around one of the many festivals, most notably the Hamburg Port Birthday, a wonderful celebration with ship parades, fireworks and ingenious tugboat ballet.
