What you should absolutely know about Hamburg

City highlights, food & drinks, expressions, weather, how to get there and how to get around

Hamburg is known for its cutting-edge fashion design, vibrant nightlife, and amazing dining. Its central Jungfernstieg avenue connects the Altstadt (old town) and the Neustadt (new town), passing Binnenalster lake, littered with boats and surrounded by quaint cafes and quirky restaurants. During your Hamburg day trips, enjoy its beauty, but this cosmopolitan city also prizes its musicals, nightclubs, shopping and unparalleled Fish Market. Wander around the Planten un Blomen, a huge urban park, while sipping on your morning coffee or watch the boats sail by on the Außenalster, one of Hamburg’s manmade inner lakes. See the animals at the Tierpark Hagenbeck, the Hamburg Zoo, and then relax with a stein of beer in the late afternoon. Tour the spectacular port of Hamburg and then embark on a walking tour to see the highlights of Hamburg

Shrink yourself down to a tiny size and experience the Minatur Wunderland. Learn about the city’s rich history at the Hamburg Museum or stroll around the main square, looking at the Rathaus, Kunsthalle, and the Chilehaus. Visit the Hamburg Dungeon or the Deichtorhallen art center

Oysters and Aalsuppe are local specialties. Try a traditional “Grööner Hein”, a dish of bacon, strong beans, and pear, or any dishes with fish or shellfish from the Elbe River. German beer is known around the world and make sure you sample Weizenbier and Weibbier

“Hello” in German is “Hallo”, “Entschuldigung” is “Excuse me”, and to ask someone how they are, ask “Wie geht’s?” Tschüß” means “Goodbye”, “Ja” is “Yes”, and “Nein” means “No”. To say “Please”, say “Bitte” and to say “Thank you”, simply say “Danke”

Summers are wet and warm, with weather in the upper-70s. Fall is slightly rainy and has high of 75 degrees. Winter (June to August) is dry and windy, with temperatures in the 60s. Spring warms up to 70 degrees and starts to become rainier
