A walk with a view is hard to avoid on a romantic getaway to Hamburg
One of the most romantic places in Hamburg is undoubtedly the Binnenalster and the Alster. These are two sections of the Elbe river which run into Hamburg. Shops, cafés and pathways have been built around them so it is even more enjoyable to walk around. From one side of the Binnenalster, either on the bridge or under the bridge you will experience a fantastic view of the city, this is even more stunning at night, when the lights of the city reflect the water. If you visit in autumn, you will be able to experience gorgeous colour of the trees around the Binnenalster and walk with your partner through the natural arches whilst enjoying the view. Sometimes events are held around Binnenalster, and you are able to walk around and taste the local cuisine. There is also a beach bar if you are there in the summer, the perfect place for a romantic meal and a relaxed drink or two.
Beaches are romantic places, and it’s not just Mediterranean countries which have them! Hamburg has its very own beach, the Elbe Strand! It is not the typical tourist beach; however, it offers a great view of the cranes and is situated in a rural setting which gives it a cozier atmosphere. There is also a restaurant here for you to enjoy.
If you enjoy experiencing nature with your partner, then the parks of Stadtpark and Planten un Blumen are perfect places for you to go. These parks are perfect if you want to enjoy some peace and serenity with your loved one in Hamburg and they are also free to visit. Planten un Blumen in the summer months offers a fountain light show in the evening accompanied by music, perfect for a romantic evening picnic with your partner.
One of the most important and enjoyable parts of a romantic getaway is finding a beautiful spot to sit together and enjoy a view. The Landungsbrücke view point in Hamburg offers you a stunning view of the port and the city, and is especially enjoyable at night. A great place to find a view in the day is the St Michael’s Church, from which you can see the whole of Hamburg, including the modern and world famous Elbphilaharmonie. If you fancy experiencing the view from the Elbphilharmonie as well, this is possible and is free! There are plenty of options in Hamburg for you to create a romantic setting with your partner.
