Hamburg Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Scenic, historic, and proud, the great port city of Hamburg is one of Germany’s top destinations. From historical landmarks to distinct neighborhoods, it promises plenty of excitement for any visitor. Even better, Hamburg can also serve as a base for exploring the rest of Northern Germany. These are three of the most interesting attractions in and around it:

  • Rathaus. The most visited (and most photographed) building in the city, glancing at the impressive Rathaus at least once is the quintessential Hamburg experience. Although not especially old - it dates back to the late 19th century - the City Hall is an important example of Neo-Renaissance architecture. The building’s 112 m (367 feet) tower is so iconic that a good number of natives of Hamburg sport a tattoo of it.
  • St. Pauli. Although best known for the red light district of the Reeperbahn area, there’s much more about this riverside quarter of Hamburg. Home to a number of subcultures, cozy bookshops, and a fun contemporary art scene, it is the city’s main hub of culture and creativity. There are landmarks like Panoptikum (Germany’s response to Madame Tussauds Museum of London) and St. Pauli Museum, and the area is also home to Hamburger Dom, the largest fair in Germany that takes place thrice a year.
  • Bremen. A neighbor (and sometimes rival) of Hamburg, Bremen is the other great northern city of Germany. A Hanseatic river port, it boasts plenty of history and culture exemplified by landmarks like the Statue of Roland, its own stunning city hall, and the many Art Nouveau (or Jugendstil) buildings of Böttcherstraße. A car trip from Hamburg takes only about 90 minutes.
