Hamburg might be often overshadowed by Berlin or Munich, but it certainly is one of Germany’s best hidden gems. A vibrant harbor city with plenty of activities, Hamburg will keep you interested through days and nights. Among the city’s most famous attractions is the Elbphilharmonie, a stunning concert hall that could rival the famous Sydney Opera House. The concert hall also features a public viewing platform that offers a panoramic view of the city and the harbor, a great bonus for visitors who enjoy taking pictures. If you travel with kids, it is a great idea to take them to the Miniatur Wunderland, which many consider to be the largest model railway in the world. If you simply want to take a walk around and enjoy the vibe of the city, Planten und Blomen, nicknamed “the green lungs of the city”, will provide the reprieve you need.

Hamburg’s proximity to the sea allows it to offer the freshest and finest seafood dishes around. Fischereihafen Restaurant is a local favorite that has garnered plenty of attention. For the best beers around, Braugasthaus Altes Mädchen is a popular spot that is worth your attention.

The main bus station in the city is called ZOB Hamburg and it’s located at Adenauerallee 78 in the city center, serving FlixBus and Sindbad, among other carriers. Hamburg Hauptbahnhof is the main railway station in the city. For international air services, Hamburg Airport, the oldest in Germany, is the main airport.

Düsseldorf is located between Essen and Cologne in Germany and is known for its booming fashion industry. Arts, music, and culture thrive in this welcoming and multicultural destination.

Altstaft, the city's old town, fills its narrow streets with relaxed cafes and chic bars. If you're lucky enough to visit in the winter, Düsseldorf is home to one of Germany's best Christmas markets, hosted at Marktplatz.

To experience Düsseldorf's culture, you can opt to watch a performance in an opera or a theatre. Two of the top theaters are the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus and Roncalli’s Apollo Variete. Then, when the opera makes you feel sufficiently posh, you'll be ready to enter the pink, opulent palace of Schloss Benrath.

While nearly every corner in Düsseldorf is filled with shops to catch your eye, the most exclusive and luxury shops congregate on one street: Königsallee. However, if you prefer digging through thrift shops and poking into local boutiques, Lorettostrasse might be more your style.

Düsseldorf is home to one of the largest airports in the area, with flights to many international destinations. To view the German countryside from the ground, take a Deutsche Bahn train or a coach offered by several companies that run routes throughout Europe.
