Germany’s second-biggest city, Hamburg is home to 1.8 million people. Bathed by the waters of the River Elbe, Hamburg is Europe’s third-biggest port. Meanwhile, another of Hamburg’s claims to fame is that it gave its name to one of the most-used words worldwide: hamburger.
An extremely cultural city, Hamburg has something for (almost) every taste. Fun things to do include:
A trip to the Pauli fish marketon Sundays – but get there early; it closes at 9 am! In the heart of the city, you can also visit City Hall, a Hamburg landmark. We also recommend a visit to St Michael’s Church, one of the symbols of the city. Be sure to visit the Warehouse Distrikt, the portarea and enjoy a splendid walk.
Just 3h30 away from Faro, Hamburg is a great tourist destination. Given its geographical location and the fact that it is one of Europe’s biggest ports, it should come as no surprise that there are plenty of transport options in Hamburg. Buses, trains, trams and the metro cover the city from north to south and air travel is easy too with the Finkenwerder Airport and Hamburg Airport, the fifth-biggest in Germany.
Hamburg is a major financial, economic and industrial hub; various companies and multinationals are headquartered here, including Airbus, Blohm + Voss, Aurubis, Beiersdorf and Unilever, as well as the Berenberg Bank, the oldest bank in the world.Hamburg is also home to Germany’s oldest stock exchange. It is a brilliant business destination.
Hamburg is definitely worth visiting this winter! Whether you are travelling on business or purely for leisure and fun, unforgettable moments await you in Hamburg. Book your trip from Faro Airport and discover this delightful city.
