Where to stay in a spa hotel in Hamburg?
Hamburg: A city full of highlights
Even though Hamburg is Germany’s second-largest city and Europe’s third-biggest port, it has retained an idyllic, old world charm that gives the city distinctive character. Its historic musical and architectural history is palpable at much-loved attractions such as the Elbphilharmonie and the Beatles-Platz – Hamburg is also where the Beatles gained fame. The city draws hordes of music lovers every year. Canals, rivers, and streams are ubiquitous in Hamburg, and these are crossed by around 2,500 bridges. The city’s other popular attractions include its rustic fish market, stunning city hall, and unique Miniatur Wunderland model train exhibition. Another popular attraction in the Hamburg-Mitte district is the tiny tidal island of Neuwerk. Home to just 32 residents, this small isle is nestled within the Wadden Sea and is about 120km away from the mainland. Neuwerk’s lighthouse, was built in the 1300s, is Hamburg’s oldest building.
Altona: Indulgent shopping avenues
While staying at spa hotels in Hamburg, guests may be content to stay put and enjoy the luxury of the hotel, but there’s plenty to do outside as well. Shopaholics will love the borough of Altona, situated by the beautiful Elbe River. The shops here boast the top picks of local design, from vintage and boho-style clothing to modern brands. The Ottenson area is popular with shoppers who prefer charming boutiques to chain brands. Make sure to stop in at a local café to rest your feet.
Mitte: Exploring Hamburg’s heart
A trip to Hamburg’s urban centre, Mitte, reveals diverse neighbourhoods ranging from the Old Town to the famous Reeperbahn nightlife district. Historic landmarks such as the spectacular St. Michael’s Church and newer, swanky neighbourhoods such as HafenCity coexist beautifully in Mitte. Hamburg’s centre is a haven for art and culture lovers, with many major museums. Wander past the Hamburger Kunsthalle’s masterpieces and the Museum of Arts and Crafts’ artefacts, which span various cultures and 4,000 years.
Hamburg-Nord: Open green spaces
The Hamburg-Nord district is popular with nature-loving guests, as the region is blessed with some of the biggest green spaces in the city. Visit Ohlsdorf Cemetery, the world’s largest cemetery-park, or the famous Stadtpark, which is popular with locals and visitors alike. At Hamburg Planetarium, also in Hamburg-Nord, multimedia projectors create amazing simulations of heavenly bodies, and a walk on the rooftop terrace here offers spectacular views of the city.
