A cultural break with a holiday apartment in Hamburg
Straddling the Elbe River as it flows through Northern Germany and into the North Sea, Hamburg is one of the biggest ports in Europe, and one of the biggest and most bustling cities in Germany. Indeed, it’s hard not to get swept up in the excitement of it all. When you book a holiday apartment in Hamburg, you open the door to a range of cultural events throughout the year, or you can just enjoy some rest and relaxation in the extensive parklands which dot the city. Hamburg really does have it all, and a holiday home in Hamburg is the perfect choice for anyone seeking an unforgettable city break.
What you need to know about Hamburg
There's plenty to discover in this German port city with its vibrant night life, and with a holiday apartment in Hamburg with TUI Villas you can be sure to find a comfortable base from which to set out on your city adventures.
A maritime city of culture
Hamburg is known as a port city, and evidence of its maritime heritage is everywhere. During your stay in a holiday home in Hamburg, you can discover the city by boat, and step on to land to wander around the beautiful, Gothic warehouse district with its long canals and stunning brick architecture. Nearby, you can also visit the vast and fascinating Maritime Museum, or the Elbphilharmonie concert hall – one of the largest buildings in Europe. For those seeking still more culture, there is also the city’s famous Museum Mile – a long boulevard which is home to five different museums and art galleries, several of which can be visited for free.
Relax in a park, or dance the night away
Hamburg is also famous for its parks and open spaces, as the city is one of the greenest in Germany. Dogs and their owners will spend many happy hours exploring Planten un Blomen – an enormous green park which is home to numerous greenhouses, botanical gardens, playgrounds, and sculptures. As might be expected for a city of this size, there’s also a great night life scene to be enjoyed in Hamburg. The party district of St Pauli is the place to be. Within its dense and neon-lit streets, you will find endless opportunities for drinking, dancing, and flirting until the early hours of the morning. Plenty of fun is also to be had in the Sternschanze district, where a range of alternative, trendy, and sometimes edgy party venues are to be found. There are quality holiday apartments in Hamburg available to rent close by both party districts – perfect to crash and recover after a night out on the town!
Enjoy the Hamburg food markets
A trip to the local food markets is essential for Hamburg visitors wanting to get a feel for local life. Early risers can enjoy the spectacle of the Fisher's Market on the banks of the Elbe river, while late risers can head to the Marktzeit market on the weekend– a New York-style haven of street food and local produce. Grab some locally sourced breads and cheeses for a reviving breakfast in the privacy of your holiday apartment in Hamburg. There’s a wide range of choice when it comes to holiday apartments in Hamburg, from quaint, period apartments with rustic decorations and wooden beams, to more modern luxury flats in the city centre. A large selection of holiday homes are pet friendly, and wherever you are in the city you’re likely to find a park nearby.
Found on the south-western side of the river Elbe, Altes Land is one of the biggest fruit-producing regions in the whole of Europe. Visitors to this idyllic region will find abundant peace and quiet, quaint half-timbered farm houses, and acres of open countryside to explore.
Much of Lüneburg Heath is a nature reserve. Considering the beauty of the unspoilt expanses of heath and woodland, it’s not hard to see why it’s so keenly preserved. It’s a popular destination for those seeking an escape from the hustle and bustle of Hamburg, and is known particularly for its distinctive population of Heidschnucke moorland sheep.
The German North Sea Coast is probably the wildest and most striking landscape in the area surrounding Hamburg. Known for its dramatic weather, it presents some amazing views, as well as challenging hiking trails. There is also delicious, hearty cuisine to enjoy after your excursions, such as cabbage rolls with meat filling, a local speciality often made with home-grown cabbage.
Getting to Hamburg
If you choose to rent a holiday apartment in Hamburg, getting there won't be difficult! Travelling from the UK to Hamburg is easy, with dozens of flights departing each day from London airports. Direct flights are also available from Manchester and Edinburgh. From Hamburg airport, there are regular, direct trains that will bring you to the city centre. The trains run about every ten minutes throughout the day.
It’s also possible to reach Hamburg by car. A ferry crossing to the city Hook of Holland, followed by a relatively short drive to Hamburg is one of the quickest ways to journey, though it’s also possible to take a scenic drive through France, if you fancy making your journey into a road trip.
When to go
Given the profusion of open spaces and parklands throughout Hamburg, the city is best enjoyed during the summer months. That being said, there’s plenty to do here during the winter too. With a holiday apartment in Hamburg in December, you can make the most of the fabulous Christmas markets, where guests warm themselves up with a mug of mulled wine while perusing the stalls. In May, Hamburg comes to life with the Cherry Blossom Festival, during which the city is blanketed in pink blossoms as citizens celebrate the close ties between Germany and Japan. The weather in Hamburg is comparable with the weather in the UK for most of the year, but it is often a little colder in winter, especially as large swathes of the city lie alongside beautiful but cold waterways.
Hamburg's finest cuisine
As a port town, Hamburg is famous for its fish. Whether you prefer a baked cod prepared in one of the city's many glamorous eateries, or a simple pickled herring sandwich from a corner deli, dining on fish is something that no visitor to this city on the water should skip. Early risers can also head directly to the Fisher's Market. Here you can purchase fresh fish and seafood to take back to your holiday apartment in Hamburg, and prepare a meal at your own pace.
