Travel packages to Hamburg
Presentation of Hamburg
Germany's second-largest city is really on the up right now, and our discount holidays in Hamburg will take you there. It's the coolest city in the country, not least because of its sensational nightlife. Not only that, but for a city of almost two million people, it's eminently liveable. After a flight to Hamburg, you'll feel like you're in a busy but friendly neighbourhood, rather than one of Europe's most important centres. Being a port, it's a diverse place that welcomes travellers from all over the world. It's also proud of its green credentials, with plenty of excellent parks to relax in during your holiday in Hamburg. To take away even more stress, book with us at eDreams!
Things to know before visiting Hamburg
When you're visiting Germany on our holiday deals to Hamburg, immigration formalities are very straightforward. You'll just need your passport, with no additional validity requirements. You won't need a visa for your flight from London to Hamburg, either. While you don't strictly have to carry your passport around, the police can ask you to take them to see it. Don't cross pedestrian crossings against the lights, as you can be fined for this; you don't want that on fun, low-cost holidays in Hamburg! Hamburg Airport is only five miles from the city centre, making it a very convenient place to begin holidays. Talk to us today to discover how easy it is to get there.
