AROUND THE MADISON
Don't miss out!
Just walk out the door and you won't cease to be amazed: all around the MADISON you will find many of the most beautiful sightseeing attractions for which Hamburg is famous. Just a short stroll and you are already at the harbor and the Landungsbrücken, where both cruise liners and barges are at home. Perhaps a container ship is even in one of the docks? From here you can walk up the hill to the towering “Michel”, our main church St. Michaelis.
Walk back down the hill and you end up in the Speicherstadt, our UNESCO World Heritage Site. From there it is just a hop, skip and a jump to the HafenCity and to Hamburg’s newest landmark the Elbphilharmonie.
So you know exactly what to expect on your sightseeing tour in the neighborhood of the hotel, you will find important information on the next pages. Enjoy discovering Hamburg!
It just may have already replaced the landmark St. Michaelis Church: Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, lovingly called “Elphi”, has by now become well-known far beyond the city limits - and not only because of the seemingly never ending construction difficulties, but especially because of its unique, bold architecture.
ST. MICHAELIS CHURCH
St. Michaelis church is probably THE landmark of Hamburg and is located directly next to our hotel. Lovingly called "Michel", the church was build in 1647 and has since then become one of the most famous hostorical sites in town. Sailors from all over the world used the St. Michaelis church as their point of orientation when entering the harbor.
The Speicherstadt is the worlds largest contiguous warehouse complex and is located just a stone's throw from the MADISON Hotel. Based on its history, there are many famous museums to be found -Miniatur Wunderland, just to give an example.
You haven't been to Hamburg without visiting the harbor. From the Elbphilharmonie over to the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken and to the fish market, there is plenty to discover. Tour Hamburg's floating landmark the cargo ship Rickmer Rickmers or climb aboard of the Cap San Diego, a museum freighter and Hamburg's "White Swan".
