Hamburg Downtown

Hamburg Icons

Hamburg Downtown: not only did everything start here, e.g. with the Hammaburg in the 9th century, here is still our center today, from the Alster and the City Hall over to the Hafencity. Explore Hamburg downtown on a free tour with a Hamburg greeter.

Since 2018, the Elbphilharmonie is our new landmark. Even without prior registration, you can enjoy the panoramic view of the harbor and the city.

Built after the Great Fire of 1842 and still the seat of our Senate: standing on thousands of piles is City Hall

With the construction of HafenCity, the Speicherstadt was also brought back to life. To a large extent, it is still about tea and carpets.
