When sightseeing, make use of Hamburg’s excellent public transport network. Let your first stop be the iconic Elbphilharmonie, a spectacular building containing three concert halls and a public viewing platform that provides magnificent views of the city. Music is part of Hamburg’s DNA, as Johannes Brahms and Felix Mendelssohn were born here while Gustav Mahler conducted the city opera for a while. The modern music scene is also extremely dynamic as the city regularly hosts various concerts and music festivals, which are also more than worthy of being added to your itinerary.

In addition to the Elbphilharmonie, the port’s other main architectural landmarks include the beautiful Neo-Renaissance town hall, the remarkable historic red brick warehouse district, the picturesque houses on Deichstraße Street and the Dockland office building made to resemble a ship’s bow. If you are traveling with children or simply love trains, then you must visit the Miniatur Wunderland, the world’s largest railway model museum and the most popular tourist attraction in Germany. You can also take a guided tour of Wunderland’s backstage.
