A characteristic and unexpected boat trip on the Elbe river. The best way to visit Hamburg from a different point of view and at a low budget. Hamburg offers a big variety of boat trips on the old Speicherstadt, the new harbour and the Elbe. An alternative and cheap choise is to jump on one of the public transport boats at Landungsbrücken in direction of Finkenwerder (line 62) to enjoy the St. Pauli water front, the Fischmarkt and Cruise Center from the water up to the sandy beach of Övelgonne. Fancy a beer or coffee on the beach? This is the best you can enjoy expecially when one of the big cargo vessels will slowly slide in front of your eyes. A magnificent show that Hamburg offers simply every day.
Visiting in Hamburg and the same time visiting the world. Yes, all of this is possible at the Miniatur Wunderland in Hamburg, the largest model railway in the world. Founded in 2006 by a couple of railway model amateurs, the extension of the railway has reached in 2016 15,400km. But it is not only about the length, it is about the detail of the environments and landscape through which the railway runs. Hamburg, Las Vegas, Switzerland, Scandinavia, the last arrived Italy and the amazing airport model which is a real airport only of a smaller size, with the same timetable of Hamburg airport. We had fun searching the through the details of the represented cities and landscapes, people kissing, nude models, scuba cows and so on. Undoubtedly one of the things you can’t miss if you visit Hamburg, and one one the things that should be on everyone’s to do list.
