I wasn’t planning to visit Hamburg, but it was so nice that things lined that way.
Although I’ve had only 24 hours in Hamburg, I tried to explore as much as I can of the city. I think Hamburg it’s a very beautiful and interesting city and I would love to return someday for longer, and I will do it for sure. A full weekend in Hamburg sounds like a great idea to me.
I really liked the architecture, the buildings, the streets, may sound dumb, but I did. I love cities with water around them. Hamburg is situated on the Elbe river, it has the largest seaport in Germany and inner-city lake. Over 2500 bridges are crossing the city, which makes Hamburg the city with the most bridges in Europe. I bet you didn’t know that, right?
I also loved the way the sun was going down, the ducks, my new friends, and all the bicycles around the whole city.
The city is often called ”The gate to the world”.
In this post, I will walk you through the streets of Hamburg with pictures, which I hope will inspire you to go and visit this wonderful city.
This is just a very small part of Hamburg. There is plenty more to see and do there. I know for sure that someday I would go back to see and experience more of this wonderful city. The time I had there was great although it was so short.
What do you think of those pictures? Did I manage at least a bit to inspire you to visit Hamburg?
Where to stay in Hamburg
I spend just one night in Hamburg and I chose to stay in Generator Hostel because I was more than satisfied with my stay with them in Berlin before that. The hostel is super clean and located in the city center, just at the other side of the street from the central station. The staff was again very kind and friendly. That’s why I would choose to stay with them again and again in Berlin, Hamburg, or in some of their other locations around Europe.
You can book your stay at Generator Hostel in Hostel World here.
