Hamburg New Year

Hi all

I'm thinking of spending New Year in Hamburg. Main question is- is it a good place to go?

I don't want crazy partying, just to have a couple of drinks and see some fireworks.

Any thoughts?

Please don't go to Landungsbruecken. It is really dangerous. People are incredibly drunk and throw fireworks into the crowd. They also throw glass bottles, there are fights, etc. I have been there and would never in my life go again.

Agree wirth Gernereiserin!!!

DO NOT GO any crowded place!!!

Hamburg is the most dangerous on any New Years Eve!!! I am not kidding or exaggerating!!!

Avoid the underground stations!!!

Too many drunk people and especially stupid kids firing crackers inside the underground station!!!!!! It's super loud and dangerous, too!!!

Also very dangerous on the "Jungfernstieg" (City Centre in whole actually)... There are those idiots, who fire firework rockets HORIZONTALLY directly into the masses of people!!!

Even if there are little children..

If you want to enjoy NYE in Hamburg find a quiet place!

Try to stay INSIDE and enjoy the view!

Maybe book a table in one of the restaurants on the Elbe river in the harbour of Hamburg.

As much as I love Hamburg.. I truely hate it on New Years Eve!

do you think it is a good idea to buy tickets to a party beforehand or just rock up in hamburg on new years and then decide? i just dont want to buy a ticket for a place where i am not even sure if it will be any good. and it will be really cold too so not sure how long we would be able to last outside.

Hi, there, I`m gonna spend New Year Eve and first 3 days of Jan. in Hamburg too. I`m a 25 years old girl, I can hardly speak German and I`m traveling alone... I`m leaving Hamburg for Amsterdam 3Jan to meet some friends but have absolutely no idea what to do alone in Hamburg before it. I guess, all the museums are gonna be closed, I`ve checked Hadag, they don`t have any more tickets, everything is sold out... What to do/ what to see/where to go? Any advices, please-please-please-please? marianna_ael@yahoo.com
