Hamburg offers a great number of marvellous attractions; the second largest city in Germany is a worthwhile vacation getaway that combines the pleasures of an urban area with proximity to great opportunities for outdoor recreation. Indeed, with its style and maritime charm, Hamburg is one of Germany's most beautiful cities. The Port of Hamburg is actually the second largest seaport in Europe and is one of the nine largest container harbours in the world. The "Gateway to the World," as this city on the Elbe is often called, offers its visitors unique experiences in shopping and culture as well as nature. And when it comes to music, Hamburg with his new „Elbphilharmonie“ is in almost the same league as New York and London. Disney's famous Lion King is one of the amazing theatrical experiences you can enjoy at the majestic facility located on the harbour.
The region around Hamburg is a true golfer's paradise, with some of the most beautiful courses in Germany, excellent public transport connections from the city and an above-average selection of comfortable golf hotels, some directly fronting the tees and others right on the courses themselves. A total of 68 diverse, high-quality courses have delights for every handicap and every taste. "Golf & City Hamburg“ is not only a motto but a real great experience.
The Hamburg Golf Club Falkenstein, founded in 1906, is certainly the best course in the city, and is indeed one of the very finest anywhere in Germany. Saint Dionys Golf Club, located around 45 minutes to the southeast of the downtown in a wonderfully natural setting, is another great layout. Other courses worth mentioning in the North of Germany are Gut Kaden Golf und Land Club, Golf Club Hamburg-Walddörfer, the Hamburger Golf und Land Club Hittfeld, Golf Club Gut Glinde and Golfanlage Schloss Lüdersburg. The port city of Hamburg is definitely a great place to enjoy your favorite sport.
