With over 79 museums, Hamburg is just as much a feast for the culture lover as Berlin or Munich. Spend the first part of your day strolling the Kunstmile, starting with the impressive collection of the Kunsthalle and ending with the contemporary art and photography of the Deichterhollen. In the afternoon, learn the city’s history the fun way at the model-filled Museum für Hamburgische Geschichte. A Hamburg Card will get you discounts on admission to numerous museums.
Get another perspective on the city by getting up, out and around! The Baroque St Michaeliskirche has a tower that will give you an angel’s-eye view of the city, or get down by the water to check out the city’s riverside culture. Finally, take a night tour to see the city in its guise of evening illumination, complete with a sound and light show!
