Bustling with life, packed with history and teeming with fabulous architecture, Hamburg is a superb city with wonderful sights and a worthy addition to any seasoned traveller’s bucket list. Those who prefer to enjoy a bit of old European decadence will not be disappointed, as Hamburg is home to a magnificent old town bursting with marvellous eateries amid sophisticated buildings, glorious palaces, quaint canals and ancient churches. If you are hoping to explore some of the countryside, the city is surrounded by luscious forests and uplifting waterways that are simply begging to be discovered. Hamburg’s cultural scene is never ending and you can choose from theatre groups such as the English Theatre (an English-speaking theatre company) and several maritime museums.
Renting holiday accommodation in Hamburg
Hamburg is an overly expanded city and a relatively new addition to the tourist scene; as such your best bet is to rent holiday accommodation. A holiday apartment will ensure that you have the freedom to plan your visit the way you want it and the luxury of having your own space. Renting holiday accommodation will give you the perfect excuse to interact with the local community and chat with your neighbour who will tell you where to find the most exquisite restaurants to enjoy local delicacies such as finkenwerder scholle, panfried plaice. A hotel is not such an attractive option when you can enjoy your very own holiday apartment in which you can put your feet up after a long day out and about exploring Hamburg’s many parks, visiting magnificent museums and discovering the city’s countless hidden corners.
Where to stay in Hamburg
Hamburg is so beautiful that we understand if you don’t want to share it with other travellers in noisy hotels.

And of course, having your very own holiday rental means that you can always do a load of laundry before heading out the next day to visit that enchanting little park that your neighbour mentioned over a glass of wine.

Hamburg with the family
A visit to Hamburg’s old quarter, with its quirky buildings suck as Chile Haus and imposing medieval rathaus (townhall) should be on top of your list. You can then make your way towards the docks to see the fabulous red brick 18th century warehouses or perhaps indulge in a boat trip through Alster lakes. Don’t forget to treat the kids to Miniatur Wonderland, the largest model railway museum in the world before finding a table at one of the many excellent cafes to try some local beer. Enjoying the luxury of your own holiday rental for a fraction of the cost of a hotel room will make your well-deserved break even more perfect.
