Best things to do in Hamburg

Exhibit
“It sounds like something for kids only, but a visit at the Miniatur Wunderland is for everyone!!! It's really amazing what they've achieved there. Try to beat the queues and go there early or book an advance ticket. You should set at least 2 hours aside for this but you can easily spend hours and hours.”

Café

“It’s about a 20 Minute nice walk to the Alster (the big lake in the middle of Hamburg) and the Alsterperle. In winter, you should have a Glühwein or a “Lumumba” (Hot Chocolate with Rum) here and just watch the lake. It’s calm and cosy and they have warm blankets. ”
