Short-Way City

A rather long and narrow city spread along both sides of the Weser River, Bremen has more than a thousand years of history.
Start off your visit on the 13th (Sun): see the interesting displays at Klimahaus Bremerhaven 8° Ost, then examine the collection at Deutsches Auswandererhaus, then appreciate the history behind Der Bremer Roland, and finally don't miss a visit to Marktplatz. Keep things going the next day: don't miss a visit to Bremer Stadtmusikanten, get to know the fascinating history of Historische Altstadt, admire the landmark architecture of Bremer Rathaus, then don't miss a visit to Schnoor Viertel, then take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Peter's Cathedral (St. Petri Dom), and finally examine the collection at Dom-Museum.

Gateway to the World

As the country's biggest port and one of the busiest in all of Europe, Hamburg has a well-deserved reputation as Germany's Gateway to the World.
Escape the urban bustle at Port of Hamburg and Wildpark Schwarze Berge. Miniatur Wunderland and Lubeck Altstadt (Lubeck Oldtown) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Hamburg: Lubeck (St. Petri zu Lubeck & Travemunde), Schwerin (Schwerin Castle (Schweriner Schloss) & Das Arsenal am Pfaffenteich) and 28Grad Strandbad Wedel (in Wedel). There's lots more to do: get to know the fascinating history of Alter Elbtunnel, shop like a local with Kunstwerk Carlshutte, take a stroll through Reeperbahn, and catch a concert at Elbphilharmonie Hamburg.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Hamburg day trip planner.
