Activities at the Romantik Hotel das Smolka
At the nearby Außenalster you can experience a wonderful oasis of calm in the city. Stroll along the shore lined with magnificent villas and watch the many small sailing ships on the water.
From the hotel you can easily and comfortably take the subway to the city center, the harbor, the musicals or the opera. There are two underground stations in the immediate vicinity of the hotel.
City and harbor tour
To get a first impression of Hamburg, start your discovery tour with a city tour on the red double-decker buses. They start their journey at the main train station, which you can easily reach with the U1 line from the hotel within about 20 minutes. The tour will take you past the city's most important sights: the Alster, City Hall, Speicherstadt, HafenCity and Reeperbahn. You can also buy a combination ticket directly on the bus and not only use the red double-decker throughout the day, but also take a tour of the harbor. Let the wind blow your nose as your expert captain tells you all about the port, ships and cargo!
Experience Hamburg at the fish market
The Hamburg fish market can be reached within 30 minutes on the U3 line.
Even without the intention of finding bargains, a visit to the Hamburg fish market is worthwhile. For example for a breakfast with fish sandwiches, a morning view over the Elbe to the port of Hamburg or just to experience the spectacle of the market.
Culture and music
Hamburg's youngest landmark - the Elbphilharmonie - can be reached within 20 minutes with the U3 line to Bäumenall. At a height of 37 meters, the visitor has a circular route on the outer edge of the building, which allows a unique view of the city and the harbor from all sides. The central platform also contains the stairways to the concert halls, the hotel lobby, the Elbphilharmonie Shop and the Deck & Deli.
You can also easily reach the musicals by subway. The Hanseatic city is the third largest musical city in the world after New York and London.
