Start your day in Hamburg with some retail therapy. Some of the best shopping is found near Hamburg Rathaus, like the Kaufmannshaus and Alte Post areas. Next, recharge with lunch at one of the cafes that sit on the canal at Alsterkaden, while watching the swans glide by. After you drop off your bags at your hotel, head to the Museum of Art and Crafts to catch an exhibition that shows the place of design in our everyday lives. Relax with a grosses bier (large beer) and a comforting Wiener schnitzel at the nearby Max & Consorten, a laidback pub that plays modern music — a rarity in Hamburg pubs. End the day with a tour of St. Michaelis Church. At night, you can head up to one of the rooftop bars (we like 20 Up) to overlook the city and enjoy a nightcap.
