Things to See in 2 days in Hamburg Germany

Miniatur Wunderland

Miniatur Wunderland is one of the biggest miniature exhibits in the world and one of the most popular tourist attractions in Germany. This place really deserves all the praises that it gets because it’s truly a miniature wonderland in every respect!

The huge model train exhibit and all the amazing recreations of famous places such as the Grand Canyon, the Alps, the Baltic Sea of Scandinavia and the Swiss railway station of Porta Alpina are all spot on. However, the star attraction – the Knuffingen Airport – is just so surreal. This mini airport is the largest model airport in the world and you can even see planes taking off and landing.

Hafen Hamburg

Hafen Hamburg is a fantastic place to go for a pleasant afternoon stroll to see the passenger and container ships dock at the port. If you do happen to be traveling during the first week of May, you’ll also be able to catch the annual celebration of the  Hamburg harbor anniversary (Hafengeburtstag) and set foot onboard the old galleons docked at the port.
Things to See in 2 days in Hamburg Germany

Best thing about a visit there is being able to book a sightseeing boat tour of Hamburg harbor for excellent views of the Altstadt (old town), and the lovely Speicherstadt (Warehouse District), which is home to the famous red-brick warehouses.

St. Michaelis Church

St. Michaelis Church is one of the most photographed landmarks in Hamburg and another place you must visit because of the famous bronze sculpture sitting above the top of the church depicting archangel Michael defeating the devil.

Besides the photo opportunity, the another reason to visit St. Michaelis is to see the underground burial vault, marvel at the church lavish interior décor, and climb to the top of the tower for spectacular 360 degree views of the city of Hamburg.

Hamburg Zoo

The Hamburg Zoo is one of the nicest zoos in Germany because of its open enclosures, and it’s no a doubt, one of the best places to visit in Hamburg with kids.

Whether you’re young or old, you’ll definitely enjoy a nice day out in this zoo hand feeding the elephants, seeing all kinds of wildlife such as bears, birds and storks, as well as a glimpsing at the huge tropical aquarium which is home to Nile crocks, sharks and rays.

Warehouse District

A walk through the famous Warehouse District (Speicherstadt) of Hamburg is something else you must add to your list of things to see in 2 days in Hamburg Germany. A boat tour is certainly a popular way to see this area, though the beauty about taking a walking tour of the Warehouse District is that you get to soak in all its charm first hand. This  Warehouse District has not been redeveloped so the area still maintains its lovely 1900’s charm, while the buildings still preserve their beautiful red brick façade.

Most of the buildings have been turned into modern restaurants, museums (i.e. Hamburg Dungeon) and offices, though some warehouses still operate just like they did back 100 years ago and are used to keep goods like carpets, coffee, etc.

Alter Elbtunnel

The Alter Elbtunnel (Old Elbe Tunnel) is an old underwater pedestrian/car tunnel over 1400ft long that was constructed beneath the River Elbe in early 1900’s. The car elevator system and its construction are quite impressive even by today’s modern standards.

If you’re renting a car in Hamburg, it’s definitely worth riding down the elevator with your car and drive through the tunnel. Otherwise, you can also freely walk along the tunnel to the other side and experience the cool feeling of being underwater!

The Rathaus

Hamburg Rathaus (City Hall) is another impressive building to photograph in Hamburg because of its beautiful exterior it’s decorated with the statues of the many former notables of Hamburg.

The Rathaus of Hamburg is certainly another tourist attraction that you can’t miss visiting while in the city, especially since you’re also allowed inside the City Hall at no cost. Best of all, you can join a free English tour of the town hall to tour the beautiful rooms and marvel at the spectacular ceilings and original wall décor.

Planten un Blomen

Planten un Blomen is one of the most beautiful places you can visit in Hamburg and it's one of the most visited places in the city during the spring because of the delightful cherry blossoms.

The gardens and flowers on display are simply amazing to look at, though it’s the water-light concert shows the main reason for the popularity of this botanical garden. You can catch one of these fountain light shows every evening (9-10pm) between the months of May and September.
