Flight to Hamburg

Hamburg

Hamburg is the second-largest city in Germany and the eighth-largest city in the European Union. It is a popular tourist attraction likely because of its long and important history as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, as a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, and so on. It is also one of the most affluent cities in Europe. Hamburg has a major influx of international visitors throughout the year. A major center for European culture and history, it is an important site for travelers, scholars, and alike. The city features a great deal of museums, churches, theaters, festivals, parks, and gardens, as well as a wide range of architecture from different periods. Tourists, fly with Austrian Airlines to Hamburg and start experiencing all that it has to offer.

SIGHTS in Hamburg:

Kunsthalle

Kunsthalle is home to a first-class collection, which covers no fewer than seven centuries. Here each of the big art families has its own room or house: the old masters are also represented, as are the authorities from the 19th century and the modern classics.   The media collection, which includes audio and video works, deserves a special mention. Among others it features work by Günter Brus, Dennis Oppenheim, Valie Export and Gordon Matta-Clark. The Gallery of Contemporary Art - a four-storey, white cube - is dedicated to art from 1960 onwards boasting many interesting pieces.

Dockland

This view will cost you nothing? bar a few calories - there's no lift to take you up the 136 steps. Via a wooden flight of steps one can reach the observation platform of one of Hamburg's most unusual office buildings. An astounding EUR 30 million was invested in its construction, but the architect team Bothe Richter Teherani ably implemented its plan. The aesthetics of the building are beaten only by the phenomenal view of the harbour.

Old Elbe Tunnel

Whether you are in love or just in love with Hamburg after dark: when morning breaks everyone is drawn to the Old Elbe Tunnel. Those who manage to cover the 426.50 metres below the Elbe to the other side of the river can enjoy what is arguably the most beautiful sunset the city has to offer.   The whole city was overcome with pride when the technical wonder was opened in 1911. Nowadays the tunnel plays the role of a lovingly maintained area of nostalgia. Visitors must take a lift down to the tiled tunnel, which greets them with an imposing atmosphere. And it's precisely this that has drawn in film and TV crews, giving the tunnel a cult status. If you want the tunnel all to yourself, you can even rent it as an event venue.

EAT in Hamburg:

Curry Pirates

The Curry Pirates love the product they sell - their homemade sausages are served simply with fresh sauces and French fries. Every week sees the unveiling of a new sausage creation, which sometimes requires a touch of daring from the uninitiated. That said, the classics are adventurous in their own right: the standard Bratwurst is filled with diced apple or dried apricots, the lamb Bratwurst comes with a yoghurt-mint sauce and the truffle Bratwurst is served on beans.   Only Germany's most expensive Bratwurst need be ordered in advance - only then will the sausage masterpiece made from truffle and veal be exclusively prepared for your plate.

Die Bank

A Michelin star practically guarantees culinary delights. Thomas Fischer has one! The restaurant is located in Stadtpalais, which was built around 1900 and was the long-time representative home of Hypothekenbank - hence the restaurant's name today.   What was once a counter hall is now a classy restaurant, which impresses with its 6-metre-high ceiling. If you would like to try out Bank we recommend the 2-course menu which changes daily. You certainly won't regret it.

Bistrot Vienna

If you're not lucky enough to have a grandmother in Vienna, then you don't know what culinary treats you've been missing out on. Bistrot Vienna is the ideal substitute.   Begin with potato soup with porcini mushrooms, followed by a Wienerschnitzel or prime boiled beef and round the meal off with sweet cheese dumplings served on a bed of stewed plums. With the tables lined up so close to one another there's no room for secrets. Nevertheless this makes room for 25 guests, although they may have to be patient as no reservations are taken.   All in all a seat at Vienna's table is certainly worthwhile, especially for those after a good hearty meal. It has been said that the service at Vienna sometimes suffers due to a laid back atmosphere. Nevertheless it remains a restaurant that serves up a great culinary experience.

STAY in Hamburg:

Fritzhotel

Located in Schanzenviertel and just a stone's throw from Karo-Viertel is Fritzhotel and its 17 sought-after rooms. They may not be the most spectacularly furnished dwellings, yet you'll be exactly where the city thrives. Just around the corner you'll find bars, pubs, restaurants and shops. A multi-cultural scene, hospitality and the city centre on your doorstep - what more could you want? Double room from 90 Euros.

Hotel Wedina

This hotel provides ideal accommodation for sensitive artistic souls, who may choose from one of four houses. The Yellow house features both turn-of-the-century and Biedermeier styles. The breakfast room and reception are located here. Guests in the Green house can enjoy a view of the Zen garden, clean lines and modern reduction.   The rooms in the Red house go to show that even 80s style can be tastefully realised. The highlight, however, is the Blue house, in which every room is named after a writer. Writers such as Martin Walser, Catherine Millet, Sven Eric Bechtolf and Marjane Satrapi are among former guests. Double room from Euro 130,-.

Village Hotel

This hotel has history. It was once the most famous bordello in northern Germany, despite fierce competition in the harbour city. Attentive onlookers will immediately recognise from the baroque furnishings what once went on here, with flock wallpaper, baldachins and mirrors giving its past away.   Today it is an extraordinary hotel with an extravagant design. The Parisian charm of the Village Hotel appeals to artists and musicians alike. A relic of the past: free coffee day and night. Double room from EUR 85.

SHOPPING in Hamburg:

Ethel Vaughn

Ethel Vaughn is an illustrious name - that's also what fashion designer Katrin Weber must have thought and therefore used the name of her boyfriend's granny for her fashion label. The granny is a Brit and also the style of the native-born Dusseldorf designer could come downright from the isle. Her urban street style is sometimes sexy, sometimes sporty, at other times simply casual - but always cool.   In the small store right between the Millerntor-Stadion and the Reeperbahn in Hamburg's district St. Pauli you'll find sweatshirts with batwing sleeves, tracksuit-styled jeans or hand-bleached shorts with a domestos look. Each piece is characterised by a casual cut and trained craftsmanship. Apart from housing the sales area for the pieces from the latest collection you'll also find the designer's atelier here - where each peace can be crafted in small quantities. And what about the fact that you can also buy the British workmen's boots by Dr. Martens? It's like chalk and cheese!

Butter Lindner

Deluxe delicatessen: Butter Lindner is a haven for any gastronome and amateur cook. Here simply everything tastes good.   Hamburg's in-crowd head to Butter Lindner to pick up their essentials. From bread and pastries to sausage, sweets, vegetables and spices, here you can find everything you need for your favourite recipe, or just a delightful snack. And the quality is so good that even star chef Tim Mälzer regularly drops by to stock up.   The highlight, after which the shop was named: butter directly from the block. Salted or not, sliced to measure.

Petra Teufel

Need advice? Kathrin Bruss has such a good eye for designer fashion that even the stars allow her to dress them. The Pet Shop Boys, Sheryl Crow, Thomas Gottschalk and Herbert Grönemeyer are just a handful of fashion-conscious stars, who have been convinced by Bruss' sense of style.   The truly big names, however, are to be found on the labels: Dries Van Noten, Ann Demeulenmester, Neil Barret, Chloé and many more are regulars at Petra Teufel. Clothing for people with taste and individual style.
