Hire a car in Hamburg

An alternative city with a distinct atmosphere, Hamburg reveals a different side of Germany.

Hamburg has been welcoming sailors and merchants for centuries, yet the city today lacks the tourist crowds you’ll find in Munich or Berlin. Although it was hit hard during WWII, Hamburg has reconstructed itself in a standout manner, developing a unique identity. It has a Scandinavian-like character and is home to both a lively nightlife scene and classical culture.

Though most famous as a boating gateway, Hamburg also serves as a great base to start off on a four-wheeled adventure.

Lübeck

Around an hour's drive from Hamburg is the must-see UNESCO World Heritage city of Lübeck. Once the main trading centre of Northern Europe, it greatly influenced the region’s development and still today, remains Germany’s largest Baltic Harbour.

Regarded as “Venice of the Baltic”, the city houses over 1,000 historic buildings with its Brick Gothic architecture lending the city a unmistakeable medieval character. The most notable example of Lübeck’s stylized cityscape is its famous Holstentor brick gate, a monument known throughout Germany.

If you’ve worked up an appetite after touring the city’s cobbled streets, be sure to indulge in some marzipan – Lübeck is the birthplace of this sweet treat. Don’t forget to grab some for the road as well!
