Your city trip to Hamburg
Hamburg - Living. Loving. Hamburg. ©Hamburg Ahoi
Perfectly located in the HafenCity
It's simply impossible to summarise the many dazzling facets of Germany's most northern metropolis on just one page. A multitude of sights and attractions are waiting to be discovered here. Renowned museums and galleries, theatres, operas, concerts and musicals, numerous award-winning restaurants, the legendary Reeperbahn, classical patrician villas and ground-breaking new architecture, such as the HafenCity with the Elbphilharmonie, one of the oldest zoos in the world as well as fascinating shops for every taste and desire.
There are also curiosities to be found in the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, such as the world's largest model railroad set, with 12 km of tracks, the gruesome Hamburg Dungeon, or Spicy's Spice Museum - all of which can be easily reached on foot from The Westin Hamburg. Or accompany the traditional night watchman by candlelight as he does his rounds through the beautifully illuminated, historical Speicherstadt warehouse district.
If you are planning a cultural trip or simply wish to enjoy the city, our concierge will gladly help you plan your stay in Hamburg.

Find that special something and take home a piece of Hamburg from the exclusive shopping hotspots of the Hanseatic City. In the centre you can stroll through the traditional Hanseatic shopping arcades such as the Levantehaus with its came glasswork ceiling windows and the famous paternoster installation.
