In Germany in the 1960s, Hamburg’s Japanese population began planting cherry trees along the banks of Alster Lake. Since then, the city launched Kirschblütenfest, a huge festival in May that features fireworks, food, martial arts performances and exhibitions.

Top 5 / Europe

Hamburg is not only the second-largest city in Germany, but it also boasts one of the greatest ports in Europe. Though the city is chock full of incredible seafood restaurants, you’ll find there’s a little something special no matter what you’re craving.


Das Dorf

Established in 1848, Das Dorf has been a Hamburg staple for more than 150 years. The rustic pub features a menu of traditional German fare and an often boisterous atmosphere. It’s worth a visit for the schnitzel alone.


Estancia Steaks

Estancia Steaks is an upscale restaurant close to the heart of the city. Though the décor is nothing to write home about, the cuts of meat here are cooked to perfection. That, coupled with some truly spectacular desserts, make it a must visit.


Café Paris

It seems odd one of the most popular restaurants in Hamburg is Parisian, but even the French who visit claim its better than anything back home. Café Paris has been around since 1882, serving some of the most delicious bouillabaisse and steak tartare in Europe.


Alt Helgoländer Fischerstube

Alt Helgoländer Fischerstube rests on the picturesque waterfront of Hamburg’s harbor and provides a romantic setting for a night on the town. The fresh seafood dishes are elevated with modern twists for an experience that is unforgettable.



Jellyfish is a Michelin-starred eatery that boasts a minimalist design and some quirky creations. The seafood here is locally sourced, and diners are treated to five- to seven-course meals in a casual, friendly environment. The jellyfish soup is obviously a source of pride.

Kenwood Inn & Spa

My husband and I arrived to Kenwood Inn & Spa about an hour before check-in time and luckily our room was ready. The front desk attendant asked if we need assistance with our luggage, then escorted us to our room. Along the way, she pointed out the rooms past the lobby where the daily complimentary breakfast is served, as well as complimentary wine tastings. I enjoyed a glass of welcome Champagne as we made our way to the room.
