Hamburg is one of the most amazing cities in Germany. I consider myself very lucky that I have accidentally landed here three and a half years ago, and stayed. Hamburg is an international, open-minded city with a long history and truly amazing sights. Today I call this city my home. Very often my family and friends from abroad come for a visit. Every time someone says that they are coming over, I have to plan their stay and a tour of the city.

Feel free to use this list for planning a stay for your guests in town!  Or use it to get some ideas for your own stay in this amazing “Hansestadt”.
