Fascinating Hamburg 06 UNIQUE 10 ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT 26 CULINARY DELIGHTS 36 DREAM HOTELS 46 AROUND & ABOUT 52 EXCLUSIVE 60 SERVICES 64 Visit our new website: it’s packed with innovative features and insider tips, and even allows you to book the latest special offers.


Hamburg has a great deal to offer: an attractive world of shopping in unique and internationally renowned stores, a wide range of cultural activities typical of a vibrant global metropolis, and innovative, multifaceted cuisine in a large number of Michelin-starred restaurants. This magazine is designed to give you an overview of Hamburg’s many highlights. In addition to a “unique” world of shopping, a lively “arts and entertainment” scene and the best venues for “culinary delights”, we will also introduce you to “dream hotels”, regional excursions and a range of “exclusive” services to make your stay even more enjoyable. All of these highlights can be found on the map at the end of the brochure. We’ll start by showing you around some of Hamburg’s finest, most interesting and exclusive neighbourhoods, where residents take pride in the place where they shop, go out, live and work. Take time to stroll through the city and soak up the view.


The former harbour area in the heart of Hamburg is not only resplendent with modern and impressively elegant architecture, it is also in a constant state of flux. The HAFENCITY is therefore always worth visiting, even if only to see the latest developments. The prominent Elbphilharmonie concert hall has become particularly appealing due to its uniqueness as a flagship construction project. The HafenCity as a whole is becoming livelier by the day, with restaurants, museums, cafes, schools and shops opening all the time. In summer, the MAGELLAN TERRACES become the setting for attractive events such as tango performances, street theatre and stage readings. Many people stroll through the traditional port to inspect the historic boats. Canals, ports, pontoons and quays add a touch of maritime flair.



Fascinating Hamburg


Binnenalster HafenCity

Before the River Alster flows into the Elbe, it forms a picturesque lake in the city centre of Hamburg, the BINNENALSTER. The revamped Jungfernstieg forms the border to the south, where Hamburg’s luxury shopping boulevard begins, the NEUE WALL: right next to Hamburg’s impressive town hall and surrounded by the Alster canals. Although not particularly wide, it is one of Europe’s top ten luxury shopping miles. Behind the wonderful art nouveau facades of listed buildings or in beautifully maintained old office buildings, discerning customers will find almost exclusively high-quality products. Architectural highlights include the baroque Görtz-Palais, the GUTRUF-HAUS and the HILDEBRANDT-HAUS (Neuer Wall 86, 10 and 18).


Just one street further to the north-west, not far from the usual range of shops found in city centre shopping streets, is the ABC-VIERTEL. This district is named after one of the oldest documented streets in Hamburg: ABC-Strasse. It is also home to an outstanding selection of art, antiques, fashion and lifestyle stores plus top international restaurants such as Die Bank. One of the best things about these businesses is that many, such as ULI SCHNEIDER, FELDENKIRCHEN and KOKO VON KNEBEL, are owner-run. This gives the district its individual flair, character and style. But international brands such as CHANEL, RALPH LAUREN and PRADA are also located here. The streets in the district are both charming and varied, with a mixture of typically Hanseatic unrendered brick houses, lovingly restored art nouveau buildings and modern chrome-and-glass facades.

AUSSENALSTER To the north of the Binnenalster lies the much larger Twice a week, Tuesdays and Fridays, this bustling and more pristine Aussenalster with its meadows, wal- market is held under the old railway viaduct between the U-Bahn stations EPPENDORFER BAUM and HOHELUFT. king and cycle paths. This Hamburg centrepiece is surrounded by the most sought-after and expensive Besides being a great place to shop, it is also ideal properties as well as the most sophisticated districts. for celebrity spotting. To the west are ROTHERBAUM and the pretty little PÖSELDORF, where JIL SANDER and ULI SCHNEIDER opened their To the north-east of the Alster is a place of beautiful and romantic canals – WINTERHUDE. Here, splendid first fashion boutiques. Slightly further afield is the verdant HARVESTEHUDE, with its well-preserved detached waterside villas line streets with names such as BELLEVUE, offering views of the ALSTER. Three streets villas, and the lively neighbourhood of EPPENDORF. In form the focal point of this popular, exquisite neighthe Seventies, this was a hotbed of student resibourhood: MÜHLENKAMP, POELCHAUKAMP and GERTIGSTRASSE. stance; today, it is one of the city’s most desirable During the summer, people look for a place in the residential areas, its streets lined with elegant turnof-the-twentieth-century town houses, ancient trees, shade by the canal, drink champagne or eat cake. beautiful parks and small upmarket boutiques – and When it’s cooler outside, they head for the KÜCHENWERKSTATT restaurant and indulge in the culinary all close to the Alster.

EPPENDORFER LANDSTRASSE, LEHMWEG and HEGESTRASSE as well as the ISEMARKT, Europe’s longest outdoor market.


With a bit of imagination, OTHMARSCHEN can also be classed as a suburb on the Elbe, despite being very close to the city centre. Its tranquil, tree-lined streets with big, smart houses give this district on the Elbe suburban flair. Waitzstrasse, a short, upmarket shopping street by Othmarschen station, is rather busier. Continue along the Elbe westwards out of the city and you’ll come to NIENSTEDTEN, with its impressively “wild” JENISCHPARK overlooking the River Elbe and containing an excellent museum of 19th-century art and culture.

The best-known suburb on the Elbe, however, is undoubtedly BLANKENESE, the prettiest part of which is on and around Hamburg’s tallest hill, the SÜLLBERG. While the Bavarians may mock, the people of Hamburg are very proud of this 80-metre hill, sometimes referred to as a little mountain range. Most importantly, though, the hill offers the most attractive scenery of anywhere in the city: the TREPPENVIERTEL, the step district, crammed with old fishermen’s cottages and new villas connected by stairs and often difficult to reach by car. The area has many hidden treasures and surprising vistas, including its own magnificent beach on the Elbe.

JIL SANDER Jil Sander made it big with her personality. Her career began in the Hamburg district of Pöseldorf, near the Alster, where she developed her unmistakeable and timelessly minimalist style. Her success not only swept the world, but also reached the upmarket Neuer Wall, where the simple, clearly structured, uncluttered design of her store reflects the Hamburg style icon herself.

BUCERIUS KUNST FORUM Established in 2002 by a foundation set up by the owner of Die Zeit newspaper, this museum beside the town hall holds four major exhibitions a year, ranging from the grave paintings of Paestum to the works of Edward Hopper. These are guest-curated by leading names from the art world and accompanied by informative lectures and symposiums. In November 2010, the Bucerius Kunst Forum joined forces with the Hamburger Kunsthalle, the Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe, the Kunstverein and the Deichtorhallen to form the Kunstmeile Hamburg – literally, a mile of art.

LAEISZHALLE Over 100 years ago, the shipping magnate Carl Heinrich Laeisz proclaimed his new concert hall “a worthy place for the performance and enjoyment of fine and serious music”. And so it remained, with international stars making acclaimed appearances in the neo-baroque building. In 2007, Christoph Lieben-Seutter took over as artistic director of the Laeiszhalle and the Elbphilharmonie. Although this spectacular new building in HafenCity is not finished yet, Elbphilharmonie concerts with top-class exceptional artists from the genres classical, jazz and new music are already being held in the Laeiszhalle and in many other parts of Hamburg.

Ever since the harbour in the centre of Hamburg began redevelopment, cranes have been hard at work constructing the most amazing buildings. The site, which is partially completed and partially under construction, is over a kilometre long – stretching from the Elbphilharmonie on Dalmankai point to the new Spiegel Verlag building, which opened in 2011, on Ericus point. The developments are already home to 1,700 residents, with tourists flocking in their droves to stroll along the terraces and promenades, and new shops and restaurants opening up all the time in HafenCity. Services started operating to the first underground station – Überseequartier – on 29 November 2012. The Kesselhaus (boiler house), which once provided power to the Speicherstadt district, now contains an information centre that offers an overview of this major inner-city project. The main attraction, however, is the

Elbphilharmonie – Hamburg’s new landmark, featuring two concert halls (a 1:10 sized acoustic model of the Grand Hall can be found in the Elbphilharmonie Pavilion on the Magellan Terraces), a five-star hotel and around 45 apartments is expected to be completed in 2014/2015. Until then, weekly guided tours of the building site offer something special. (Book early at www.elbphilharmonie. de or on +49 (0)40 3576 6666). Kesselhaus

Some 20 office buildings have been constructed on the banks of the Elbe in Altona over the last few years – second only to HafenCity. The scenic trail along the river from Altona to Övelgönne takes you past some of these buildings, including the “Hanse-Gate”, the “Columbia Twins” and the “Elbkaihaus”. The real architectural jewel amongst all these pearls is Dockland, by Hamburg’s star architects Bothe, Richter, Teherani. Shaped like a ship’s prow, it offers a spectacular view of the Elbe from the top of a long set of stairs. Those who fancy a helicopter tour should contact Wasserthal. The helicopter company offers bird’s-eye views of the city, either following a fixed route or tailored to your specific wishes.

CULINARY Eating, drinking and going out



 DELIGHTS While lovers of aesthetics might turn up their noses at traditional local dishes such as Labskaus (a hearty beef stew), the truth is that Hamburg has more Michelin-starred restaurants than any other German city apart from Berlin and Munich, making it the perfect destination for a gourmet break. Here, we reveal Hamburg’s culinary delights – plus where to get a good drink in good company.


CULINARY DELIGHTS Hamburg’s famous chefs

Cornelia Poletto In June 2011, Cornelia Poletto appeared with a new concept at a new location. After 20 years in Michelin-starred gastronomy, she decided to go for a mixture of casual dining and delicatessen. Her loyalty has, however, remained true to the district of Eppendorf, where both her deli and restaurant revolve around Mediterranean/Italian-style cuisine. Popular specialities such as Pollo alla Poletto and Spaghetti alla Genovese feature alongside daily specials on a clearly laid-out menu. The wine list offers a good selection of wines by the glass. Cornelia Poletto Eppendorfer Landstrasse 80 (Eppendorf) Tel. +49 (0)40 480 2159 Mon.–Sat. 11.30 a.m.–9 p.m.

Only the freshest of fish make it onto Steffen Henssler’s table

BULLEREI When TV chef Tim Mälzer and his manager Patrick Rüther were planning their new Bullerei restaurant, they considered all kinds of potential locations – a church in Eimsbüttel, the cellar of Hamburg’s town hall, one floor of a skyscraper – before deciding on the historic cattle market in the Schanzenviertel in 2009. The TV chef deliberately kept the concept simple: “We just want to serve good food.” And it works. The beautifully renovated rooms are packed to the rafters with young and young-at-heart gourmets.

Doc Cheng’s Restaurant


Experience the Far East up close in the Fairmont Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten, where the highlights of a varied and fascinating culture blend with the cool and stylish decor of an oriental restaurant. Doc Cheng’s is the name of the restaurant, whose Far Eastern furniture, trendy accessories and secrets of exotic cuisine entice guests into a foreign world.

Bullerei Lagerstrasse 34 b (Schanzenviertel) Tel. +49 (0)40 3344 2110 Deli Mon.–Sun. from 11 a.m., restaurant Mon.–Sun. from 6 p.m.

HENSSLER & HENSSLER/ ONO In their restaurant on the Elbe, Steffen Henssler and his father spoil the great and the good of Hamburg with Euro-Asian fish dishes. The friendly chef learnt his trade in California, amongst other places, and this is apparent in his highly successful menu; the amazing crunchy roll, for example, packs a punch that no Japanese chef would be able to match. The Michelin-starred chef also runs his own cosy little sushi temple, the Ono in Eppendorf, with a large summer terrace overlooking the Isebek canal. Henssler & Henssler Restaurant Sushibar

SEVEN SEAS AND GOURMETTERRASSEN Hamburg may not have many hills, but one, the Süllberg in the chic Blankenese district, is the stuff of culinary legend. Here, Michelin-starred chef Karlheinz Hauser presides over a hotel and various restaurants such as the Gourmetterrassen, the exclusive version of the popular Süllbergterrassen. In summer, you can sit beneath the old trees and enjoy a Riviera-like view of old fishermen’s and seafarers’ cottages, new villas and spectacular mansions hugging the hillside, while huge cruise ships and tankers sail up and down the Elbe below. Just a few steps further uphill and you’ll be a few steps closer to gastronomic heaven, where you’ll be able to enjoy Hauser’s exquisite haute cuisine at the Seven Seas restaurant.

Waterside dining CULINARY DELIGHTS

LE CANARD NOUVEAU This restaurant on Elbchaussee first came to fame under Josef Viehhauser. When he retired, it remained empty for a while until Ali Güngörmüs took over in 2005, when he was in his late twenties. Adding the word “nouveau” to lend the name an extra touch of elegance, he restored it to its former glory as a popular gourmet establishment with a fantastic view of the Elbe and the harbour. Just one year later, he was awarded a Michelin star. His secret? Smart but not overly formal, timeless but by no means boring, fresh and modern with an oriental touch. Le Canard Nouveau Elbchaussee 139 (Ottensen) Tel. +49 (0)40 8812 9532 Tues.–Sat. 12–2.30 p.m. and 6.30–10.30 p.m. Ali Güngörmüs earned his reputation years ago in Munich’s Tantris restaurant

SYLT For the Hamburg natives, a trip to the North Sea island of Sylt is a must – and not just because of its fabulous beaches, fresh air and spectacular sea views, but also because of the “Sansibar”. It is also a good place for spotting interesting and famous faces: Herbert Seckler always keeps a few seats free in his famous beachside restaurant in case VIPs decide to drop by. Although there’s room for hundreds of guests, it’s always busy, so book early if you don’t want to be left standing outside. Alternatively, try your luck in Hamburg’s Sansibar Wine in HafenCity ... But Sylt has much more to offer: once you get away from the tourist hotspots and stroll across the Wadden Sea or the dunes, the island’s lovely landscapes will start to work their magic and ease your cares away. Sansibar Restaurant Hörnumer Strasse 80, 25980 Sylt-Rantum, Tel. +49 (0)4651 964 646 Opening hours Mon.–Sun. from 10.30 a.m. Phone bookings ONLY, from 12.30 p.m.

TRAVEMÜNDE The Baltic resort of Travemünde is the grande dame of the north. As early as the mid 19th century, celebrities and the nobility flocked here from all over Europe, and Dostoyevsky, Turgenev and Gogol frittered their money away in the casino. More recently, Aristotle Onassis and Austrian actor Curd Jürgens both lost substantial amounts of money on the roulette table. Today, croupiers in the renovated art nouveau building still say “Rien ne va plus!” and guests still sip drinks in the bar overlooking the sea. Once a rather raunchy nightclub, the La Belle Epoque restaurant in the five-star Columbia Hotel next door is now a gourmet restaurant run by renowned Michelin-starred chef Kevin Fehling. Besides fine dining and gambling, Travemünde has unlimited quantities of fresh sea air and a wonderful beach.

TIMMENDORFER STRAND The swanky Baltic seaside resort of Timmendorfer Strand, in the Bay of Lübeck, makes a good excursion from Hamburg. It has a scenic promenade, high-class boutiques, hip beach clubs and a well-tended 36-hole golf course at the Seeschlösschen Hotel, where they say golfing in the sea air strengthens the immune system. The chic club has two courses to suit different levels, with experts preferring the northern one. Tip: charter a sailing or motor yacht for a tour of the Baltic.

GROSSENSEE/ LÜTJENSEE The chain of scenic lakes to the north-east of Hamburg is easily reachable via the A1 autobahn. The Hoisdorf golf club nestles neatly in the Schleswig-Holstein countryside between the Grossensee and the Lütjensee (lütjen is Low German for small), and the Fischerklause Lütjensee restaurant offers the perfect place to relax after a round. Restaurateurs Claudia and Gerhard Retter acquired the club and carefully modernised it, paying great attention to detail. Guests at this idyllic lakeside country house can savour fine local cuisine with a strong emphasis on fish and fusion.

During the Middle Ages, events in northern Germany were dominated by the HANSEATIC LEAGUE. This federation of guilds and cities banded together to provide mutual aid and protect economic interests. There are three other Hanseatic cities within easy reach of Hamburg. The biggest and undoubtedly most important of these cities in

Christmas market in Lüneburg’s historic old town

Schwerin Castle was the seat of the Grand Duchy of Mecklenburg-Schwerin until 1918

After the league declined, it faded into relative obscurity, but its ancient brick-built town centre survived the Second World War almost unscathed.

SCHWERIN to the east of Hamburg, by the great Lake Schwerin, is a beautiful old ducal residence, now the state capital of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: its magnificent castle was described by former German President Richard von Weizsäcker as Germany’s most beautiful state parliament. Regular tours of the castle are held all year round. For a quieter and more tranquil day out from Hamburg, try FRIEDRICHSTADT in Schleswig-Holstein with its Dutch architecture and culture, complete with canals, old merchants’ houses and tiny alleyways. It is particularly enchanting in summer, when front gardens are abloom with roses.

The HANSEATIC TOWN of WISMAR lies on a sheltered bay in the Baltic, where it has maintained its authentic medieval harbour. Here, visitors The Holstentor in Lübeck dates from 1478 are given a wonderful insight into the heart of a a medieval the Middle Ages was LÜBECK, an maritime trading centre. In 2002, important medieval trading port Wismar and Stralsund were with numerous historic buildings. named UNESCO World Heritage Known as the “City of the Seven Sites. Spires”, it also has many well-preserved and important merchants’ houses, such as the Buddenbrookhaus, now home to the Heinrich and Thomas Mann Centre. At that time, the most important commodity in LÜNEBURG was salt. The town had a monopoly on this “white gold” in northern Germany and soon became a wealthy and important member of the Hanseatic League.

Medieval Wismar has acquired a new glamour in recent years


The “Dutch town” of Friedrichstadt was founded in 1621


Apples in the orchard of the north, the Altes Land (left) The romantic Dithmarscher Eiderwatt nature reserve

ALTES LAND The name Altes Land, the picturesque area of marshland downstream from Hamburg, means “old land”. However, it actually has nothing to do with being “old” (despite still being called Olland in Low German), but is a reference to its colonisation by Dutch settlers. The region is dotted with fruit plantations and well-preserved old half-timbered houses, and traversed by dykes and rivers such as the Este, Schwinge and Lühe. It is at its best in spring, when the apple and cherry orchards burst into bloom. Despite feeling rural, some areas actually form part of the city of Hamburg.

WADDEN SEA Together with Australia’s Great Barrier Reef and other intact and well-protected features of great natural importance, the Wadden Sea has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The spa resort of St. Peter-Ording makes a good base to explore the Schleswig-Holstein section of the Wadden Sea, which is also a national park. The village has miles of sandy beach, salt meadows, dunes, woodlands and a healthy North Sea climate. Expect to find nature at its best on the island of Neuwerk, too. Despite being around 100 km from Hamburg’s centre, the island is still part of the Hanseatic city. Together with the even smaller islands of Scharhörn and Nigehörn, it forms a bird sanctuary in the Wadden Sea National Park. Tip: A high-speed catamaran ride from Hamburg over the Elbe and the North Sea to the island of Helgoland is also worth the experience.
