Hamburg is an exciting and diverse destination to visit in the northern part of Germany. With a Mercedes G63 AMG SUV rental, it is easy to visit numerous locations located nearby for a fun-filled road trip. From breathtaking castles to historical towns, you’ll find adventure within a few hours of Hamburg. This hugely powerful SUV is equipped with a twin-turbo 5.5-liter V8 engine that produces 563 horsepower. With room for five passengers to spread out comfortably, it is easy to enjoy a few days on the open road.
Spending a few days exploring Hamburg is the best thing you can do in your Mercedes G63 AMG SUV. The area is filled with history, culture and of course, good food. Start off in the Speicherstadt Warehouse District which is one of the most picturesque areas around. The buildings stand on top of oak piles that are massive in size. You won’t be able to go into any of the buildings, but just wandering aimlessly is a great way to spend the day. It’s easy to get lost while exploring here and lose track of time.
A short drive down Willy-Brandt-Straße will take you to the site of St. Nicholas’ Church which is in ruins since the bombing of World War II. The only part that remains is the tower. The aspect you’ll want to see is the statue standing in the courtyard. This woman looks down to the ground while hands are reaching toward her from beneath. One has to wonder if these hands want to help her or hurt her.
You’ll also want to stop off at the Miniatur Wunderland. This is the world's largest railway model and is broken into five sections — Southern Germany, America, Hamburg and the Coast, Scandinavia and Switzerland. In total, you’ll see 900 trains, 300,000 lights, 200,000 trees and 200,000 people.While in this area, we recommend staying at AMERON Hotel Speicherstadt Hamburg. It’s a quiet and luxurious choice right in the middle of bustling Speicherstadt. We think you’ll especially love the bridge which takes you to the breakfast room.
To enjoy the full essence of Hamburg, you need to head to the waterfront area on the Elbe River. This majestic walkway gives you the chance to take a stroll, do some shopping and taste some local ice cream. Take in a panoramic view of the surrounding harbor and watch the ships coming in or stop off at the Elbphilharmonie concert hall. If you are still here when the sun is setting, you’ll see the sky light up in various shades of pink. Make sure you bring a camera to capture the moment.
It’s easy to spend an entire day here enjoying the sites. For a quick bite to eat, stop off at the Hard Rock Café located on the water. If you prefer to enjoy a seafood dinner, we recommend Casa Franco located at Rambachstraße 7. Try some gambas flambe or the fresh fish with Mediterranean veggies. When the night is over, stay at the Empire Riverside Hotel Hamburg which features a hip restaurant, sushi eatery, cocktail bar and sauna.
As with all European cities, you’ll find a busy and vibrant center point. Iconic architecture surrounds this vantage point and canals run through the edge of the city square. For some nighttime excitement, head to St. Pauli which has the trendiest bars and shops around. There are various spots in this district to grab a quick coffee or beer.
Stop off at the famous St. Pauli Theatre which offers some spectacular comedy and cabaret productions. You’ll also want to see the Operettenhaus located on the central square, Spielbudenplatz, where many well-known musicals are staged. Three times a year, this area is host to the largest fair in all of Northern Germany. It is located at the Hamburger Dom which hosts over a million visitors.
Less than an hour away southeast on the A39, you’ll come to the town of Lüneburg which offers unique medieval charm, a majestic Old Town and saltwater thermal baths. An hour northeast of Hamburg on the A1, you’ll come to Lübeck, near the coast of the Baltic Sea. Because this area is known as ‘Marzipan City’, you know that your mouth will enjoy the visit.
Maybe you are more interested in fairy tales? If that is the cause, head an hour and a half southwest on the A1 to Bremen. This is a famous town from the Brothers Grimm fairy tales and you’ll feel the charm as soon as you step foot in the area. It’s a wonderful maze of narrow streets and a bustling riverside promenade.
If you choose to enjoy an adventure on the road, there are many locations within driving distance from Hamburg to enjoy for a weekend.
