Gateway to the World

As the country's biggest port and one of the busiest in all of Europe, Hamburg has a well-deserved reputation as Germany's Gateway to the World.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Kunsthalle Hamburg and Museum of Hamburg History. Your inner history buff will appreciate St Nikolai Memorial and St. Petri Kirche. There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of Ohlsdorf Cemetery, don't miss a visit to Marktkirche, contemplate the waterfront views at Binnenalster, and examine the collection at Dialog in the Dark.
