In a city like Hamburg, you'll never be short of things to do, see and taste but we have picked some of our favourites to give you some inspiration;

Urban Beach Clubs

During the summer months, sand is imported to Hamburg's riverside terraces for visitors to enjoy urban beaches in the long summer months. Stroll along the River Elbe and enjoy the 'beach side' cafes and bars. 

One of the most popular spots is Strand Pauli where you can watch ships pass by on the river whilst you soak up the sun on a beach chair.
