Hamburg offers great transport links
One of the best things about utilising Hamburg as a business destination is that you can reach the city by every mode of transportation. The easiest way to reach this German city is by plane and then taking a quick train into the city centre. The convenience of the main airport being only a short 15-minute drive from town makes it highly accessible. Plus, for just a few euros you will be able to purchase a day pass for the extensive metro network.
UNESCO World Heritage Site
This one may come as a shock but the Speicherstadt is the world’s largest warehouse district and this impressive district became a world heritage site back in 2015. In fact, Germany has 40 spectacular UNESCO sites! The Speicherstadt was built from 1883 to 1927 and its spectacular neo-gothic façade makes for some fantastic pictures! Nowadays, you’ll find several museums on the site including the Miniatur Wunderland, which is a must-visit destination for any train enthusiasts.
An architecture fan’s paradise
While the architecture in Hamburg is fairly recent when compared to a lot of towns or cities in Germany and throughout Europe, you will mainly find typical architecture form the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. This architecture may not be medieval, but it certainly is beautiful! Impressive churches line the city’s skyline as you venture through the Speicherstadt district and the town hall is one of the largest in the country!
Bridges as far as the eye can see…
Did you know that Hamburg has more bridges than London, Venice and Amsterdam combined? In fact, the sheer number of waterways in Hamburg can be a little overwhelming, and this is when you’re walking around the main centre. Why not make a game of it on a nice, sunny day and see how many unique bridges you can find? We can’t think of a better way to explore this fascinating city!
One of the best things about Hamburg is that you are never too far from a café or delectable bakery smell! Hamburg does not offer the same high-intensity metropolitan vibe that has made New York and London so famous. Instead, the pace is slower, and you don’t feel like you have to rush from A to B. You can take your time soaking up the city vibe and enjoy eating your waffle, pretzel or tasty cinnamon roll…make sure you take your sipping on your favourite latte or kaffee as they say in Hamburg. One thing’s for sure, it’s all in the experience in this city.
