My Perfect Day

What to do in a place like this if you only have 24 hours?

I would recommend the following schedule:

9:00 Breakfast at Reichsof Hamurg, Curio Collection by Hilton hotel. Try the multi-nuts cereal with mixed fresh fruit.

10:00 Walk out to Central Station right outside the hotel’s doors to the Mönckebergstraße shopping district to explore. From there, head straight to the City Hall of Hamburg, to take one of the tours provided on an hourly basis. Admire the interior of the gorgeous building as well as the picturesque views inside and outside on Jungfernstieg.

11:30 Bus transfer to Speicherstadt where people used to export and import merchandise, herbs and spices. Nowadays, they use this area for a showroom, office and warehouse.

12:30 Take a coffee break at Die Rösterei Cafe at Speicherstadt. Sustainability and fair trade comes first to them.

13.30 Continue to the next discovery at Landungsbrücken. It is well known that Hamburg has many bridges, so it is where you can see the true beauty of Hamburg.

14:00 During a walking tour of Landungsbrücken, take time to have lunch on the harbor, where they serve all kinds of seafood dishes.

16:00 Next to the Landungsbrücken, visit the famous Fishmarket at Dockland, where the 6th floor offers a beautiful view of the harbor and Hamburg.

17:30 Take your time getting back to Hamburg Center, but from the other side of the harbor. Enjoy St. Pauli and Repeerbahn, the world-famous nightlife spot for all ages.

19:00 Once back in the hotel, have a refreshment at Bar 1910 as well as a nice shower.

20:30 Enjoy dinner and musical entertainment by the chef at the slowman Restaurant.

22:30 Time to party at Clouds Bar, with a skyline view to truly enjoy Hamburg’s light up skyline by night.

Reichshof Hamburg, Curio Collection by Hilton

Reichshof Hamburg, Curio Collection by Hilton, combines an ideal location and a charming, historic building for an exciting guest experience. The hotel, which has been completely renovated, was built in 1910, and features an Art Deco design highlighting the style of the 'golden twenties.' Combined with that are modern design elements and technology. Located in the heart of Hamburg, Germany, the hotel is near the main train station and many attractions. Within walking distance are Alster Lake, the Rathaus (city hall), shops, restaurants, museums, and galleries.


Reichshof Hamburg, Curio Collection by Hilton is incredibly charming due to the combination of classic and modern styles. The designers did a great job in terms of creating a modern feel while preserving the classic touch.

In my opinion, the overall quality of the hotel is stupendous, not only the interior but also the perfect quality of the services that are provided. As a student of International Business and Sustainability, a main factor for me is to recommend to my readers where to stay or what to wear with an emphasis on sustainable products.

Overall, it was a great impression and it felt like home because of the kindness and professionalism of the team.

Dining at slowman Restaurant -- I felt like I jumped into a time machine and went back to the 1920s but with a modern spin. When I visited the slowman Restaurant in the hotel, it immediately reminded me of a Gatsby party. During dinner, I was surprised how they value their concept of food, as well as regional sourcing and sustainability. No chemicals are used in the process of growing vegetables, meats or other ingredients. I was so impressed with slowman Restaurant because it’s not easy to provide such quality and locally-sourced food on a competitive level, but the chefs succeed in making it happen.
