Sample some of Hamburg’s legendary musical heritage at the Laeiszhalle, the city’s principal concert hall and the largest in Germany when it opened in 1908. The birthplace of Brahms is known for its world-famous orchestras, and you may be lucky enough to catch a guest performance by a star soloist. Admire masterpieces by celebrated painters in Hamburg’s prestigious Kunsthalle, which houses one of the finest collections of German art in Europe, spread across 3 landmark buildings in the Altstadt, or old town. When you’ve satisfied your appetite for art, find a table at one of the charming restaurants that line the Alster lakeside and enjoy a relaxing lunch of local specialties or fresh seafood with one of the prettiest backdrops in town.
