Hamburg and surroundings:
Hamburg, the german Gateway to World, the Beauty, the Highlight of the North: there are good reasons why the green city on the river is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in Germany.
Hamburg offers singular features to its guests: Arts and culture at its finest, worldwide successful musicals, superior and entertaining theatre, excellent restaurants, exquisite shopping possibilities, exciting night life and loads of historical landmarks that were left by the 1200 years old history of the city. In the Port of Hamburg, in the heart of the city, ships from all over the world land. At the river Elbe you can find romantic-beautiful views from the Elbhang and the lower beaches.
The metropolis Hamburg is located between North Sea and Baltic Sea, between winding villages and wide landscapes with many singular places.
Here are some possibilities for trips to hamburgs surroundings:
1. Shores of the North- and the Baltic sea
You can visit the shores of the North- and the Baltic Sea to relax in a beach chair with your feet in the sand and your view over the ocean.
It´s 75 km from our home to the the baltic see (50 minutes drive on the autobahn)
2. Altes Land (Old country)
Hopping over the river Elbe (by boat or with the rapid-transit railway) to Lower Saxony takes you to the fruit farmers in the "Old Country"- the biggest joined European fruit producing area. Freshly harvested fruit and thatched farm houses, wide dyke landscapes and the picturesque villages Buxtehude and Stade invite you to discover them.
The Holstentor, the Buddenbrooks and "Niederegger Marzipan" are famous poster childs for the Hanseatic city Lübeck north of Hamburg. The city, which was declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO, is a living memorial of rich merchants, cultural centre and modern university city at the same time. Outside the gates lies the popular Baltic Sea bath Travemünde.
South of Hamburg, in the salt city Lüneburg, the Middle Ages come alive: ancient lanes and houses, the historic Town Hall and the "Stintmarkt" (Fish Market) give insight into the roots of the culture of northern Germany and the history of salt trade. The "Lüneburger Heide", the heath land of Lüneburg with its silent villages, invites to relaxed hiking, cycling and sailing.
