Ten’s the magic number on this trip, as you tick off the top-ranked attractions in Hamburg. The panoramic tour starts big, as you pass the grand City Hall. Next, you’ll see the oldest stock exchange in Germany, the UNESCO-tagged, red-brick buildings of Speicherstadt, and the high-end boutiques of Jungfernstieg. The vast Alster Lake’s next on the agenda, and you’ll follow it up by driving past the old sailing docks, Landungsbrucken. There’s time for a bit of exploring at the next location, as you head into St Michael’s Church for a look at the white-and-gold decor. Stroll across to Krameramtsstuben from here, where the oldest buildings in the city reside, before checking out the traditional homes of the Elbvororte area. You’ll stop for lunch afterwards, and there’ll be some free time to look around on your own.
