Top 10 instagrammable spots in Hamburg

With two rivers, douzens of parks and a buzzing art scene, Hamburg is not just great for a weekend trip, but also to impress your friends and followers on Instagram.

 

Since Hamburg still excites me after living here for several years, I've put together a list of my favourite spots to visit for a great afternoon and a few likes from your Social Media-friends.

Hafen City at sunset
Sunset makes everything better! The Hafen City is a great photography spot, as you'll find cool new architecture reflecting in the water

Zuckermonarchie

This is one of the most adorable and defintely the girliest place I've ever been to. Pastel colours, glittery garlands and sugar coated everything, it's time to pick up your camera!

Alster

The Alster is a river running through the city, creating two lakes right in the middle of the centre. Especially in spring and autumn, this area is worth a visit.

Hedi

Getting on a boat and simply driving around all day, that's the best way to explore Hamburg. "Frau Hedi" is a party boat, that tours through the harbour, taking a different turn every time. Don't miss the sunset for amazing pictures of the cranes.

Street Art

Especially around St. Pauli and Sternschanze, you'll find great street art around every corner and can spot hipsters having their „galao“ (fancy portuguese word for coffee).

Elbphilharmonie

Hamburg's newest and shiniest landmark is definitely worth a visit. Tickets for the concerts are hard to get, but the plaza is free to visit for everybody.

Park Fiction

From this park you'll have a great view over the harbour at sunset. The metal palm trees (no idea why they are there) reflect in the sun and will look great on your pictures.

Hamburger Dom

This fair next to the St. Pauli Stadion takes place three times a year, each time for a month. So chances are that it will be up, or either just being set up or taken down during your visit. For great pictures, it's also worth stopping by when the carnival isn't open, to see it without all the people.

Speicherstadt

Hamburg still is a handling centre for many goods like cacao and carpets, which are stored in the warehouses around Speicherstadt. Look out for the buildings' reflections in the water, those are very photogenic.

Subway Hafen city universität

There is a light show once an hour at this subway stop, when the cubes at the ceiling change colour.

Elbstrand

Did you know that Hamburg has an actual beach?
Apparently the water quality is questionable, but I've been swimming there many times and survived. Nevertheless, it's definitely worth bringing your camera.
