Get to know Hamburg (no more "I wish I knew this before")

This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences. This way, you can spend less time settling in, and more time making new friends in your chosen hostel. We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Hamburg.

Hamburg is a city-state in Germany, was a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, and impresses its visitors with one of the largest ports in Europe.

If you are looking for a Hamburg hostel, it is best to look for a central location. The Altstadt (old city center) is the heart of the city and boasts of excellent museums and tempting retail therapy. However, you should be aware that it might be quite expensive to stay there. St. Pauli, the former proscribed red-light district, is now the nightlife metropolis of Hamburg. HafenCity is a young borough with lots of modern buildings The Neustadt features lots of upscale shopping and is adjacent to the old city center.

Getting around from your Hamburg hostel is easy thanks to an extensive public transport system. A fun way to get around is by ferry; there are six ferry lines operating along the river Elbe which can be used for sightseeing tours as well. Hamburg airport is accessible by train. Hamburg is also a major railway junction on the way to Scandinavia.

While you are visiting a Hamburg hostel, we recommend enjoying the wide variety of cultural activities. Hamburg offers more than 60 museums and 40 theaters. Excellent ones include the contemporary art gallery (Kunsthalle Hamburg) and the International Maritime Museum. Visit the old warehouse district (Speicherstadt) and the harbour promenade (Landungsbrücken) and take a tour of the harbour. We also recommend exploring the Reeperbahn, where The Beatles started their career, and trying some specialties of the local cuisine like Rote Grütze or eel soup.
