Things to see in Hamburg

Hamburg is intensely proud of its rich maritime legacy and nowhere is this more evident than in its docklands. The Internationales Maritimes Museum, an extensive collection of memorabilia housed in a stunning warehouse conversion, chronicles 3,000 years of shipbuilding in the city. See Hamburg’s famous sights from the water with a boat ride along the River Elbe—options range from a simple hop-on hop-off ferry loop to a romantic sunset dinner cruise. If the performing arts are more to your taste, don’t let the language barrier stop you from enjoying a night at the theater—Hamburg is home to the highly acclaimed English Theatre of Hamburg, which mounts professional productions of classics, comedies, and contemporary plays. Opera lovers are also in for a treat, as Hamburg State Opera is one of the finest in Germany, with an illustrious history stretching back to the 17th century and many world premieres to its name.
