The Best Hotels in Hamburg, Germany

The StarTripper Journal presents the best places to stay in Hamburg, both international luxury and boutique choices.

Our team to Hamburg are four ladies who have tested a lot of hotels, restaurants and night-clubs world-wide.

Hamburg – Germany’s second-largest city and biggest port – is one of the coolest cities in the world. It's historic label ‘The gateway to the world’ is a bold claim, but it was true for most Germans. The city's echo of the port and history are everywhere, from the incessant cry of gulls overhead to the vibrant neighbourhoods awash with multicultural eateries, seaward-facing architecture and the gloriously seedy Reeperbahn red-light district.

The people of Hamburg really know how to live – the culinary offers are excellence and the nightlife is wonderful.

White arcades adorn the waterfront at the Jungfernstieg promenade with an elegant, Mediterranean charm. A perfect destination for an afternoon stroll, the shopping galleries offer designer clothes, exclusive jewelry, luxury dining – and surprising Art Nouveau frescoes.

Mellin Passage, the oldest shopping arcade in Hamburg, is connecting the Alsterarkaden with the Neuer Wall shopping street. Here, you’ll find antiques, art and rare literature at Felix Jud, exclusive porcelain vases and dishware at the Königliche Porzellan Manufaktur.

The swans on Inner Alster Lake hold a special place in Hamburg’s identity – it is said that the city will be free and Hanseatic as long as there are swans living on the Alster – so the swans are protected and cared for dutifully by the city government.
