Exploring Hamburg with kids.

Traveling with kids is no issue at all, especially if you prepare your visit a little bit. Most of the times I plan whatever I want to see, around what she wants to see. Combined with enough pit-stops at cute places where they serve good coffee for me and something yummy for her, we both have a brilliant time.

Hamburg Card

As in many bigger cities, there’s a hop on hop off system. We got our hands on a Hamburg Card for three days. The card will give you limitless access to all public transport without buying tickets all the time. Besides that, it gives you nice discounts on the entrance of some museums. Good to know; kids under the age of 6 travel for free.

A big “thank you” to Hamburg Marketing for helping me out with this one. This really made our city trip so much more relaxed!

Kid proof museums in Hamburg


You can call it a pity when it rains on one of your days during a city trip, but crazy enough we didn’t mind. We went to the Kunsthalle. This is by far one of the biggest museums we ever stepped foot in. As we like contemporary art, we skipped all of the rest and still spend plenty of time just browsing through the modern art department. They even have a kids room where the little lady could’ve played for hours and hours. Check out our other blog on the Kunsthalle for even more pictures.

NOTE: With your Hamburg Card you get a discount on the entrance fee. For kids, the museums in Hamburg are for free.



What’s fun about looking at buildings for kids you wonder? I promise you that visiting the Elbphilharmonie is worth it. The escalator is impressive, the view amazing and it’s free! Curious to more pictures? Check out my blog filled with photos of the new Elbphilharmonie building in Hamburg.

Fat Unicorn Sweets


I mean, what’s not to like? In between the shopping streets from Hamburg, you’ll find Fat Unicorn Sweets. The little one can create their own cupcake. And there are way too many choices. This is a chocolate cupcake with nougat buttercream, chocolate sauce, and 3 different toppings. We left this place in a sugar high, but it was worth it all.

Photo automat


I’m sure you’re taking lots of photos during your city trip in Hamburg, but are you ever in the picture? I rest my case. We love the old photo automat you can find them everywhere in the city of Hamburg. It will cost you 2 euro for a series of 4 photos. Be warned, it takes long for the machine to take the photos, so keep your smile!
