With an impeccable attention to details, the many interactive models here will keep you hooked. Next up, make your way to the Speicherstadt - a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Just before lunch, visit the Church of St. Michaelis. One of the largest churches in northern Germany, this church is built in a baroque style and is considered as a symbol of the city. If you have a few extra minutes to spare, we suggest you climb up the tower to see the city from above. After a hearty lunch at one of the nearby restaurants, make your way to the Alster Lake.
