Things in to see and do in Ahrensburg
Ahrensburg, a beautiful town just north of Hamburg, offers plenty of culture and leisure activities for travellers. Holiday-makers who rent a car in Ahrensburg shouldn't miss out on a drive to the historical Schloss nearby. This beautiful Renaissance castle with glistening whitewashed walls dates all the way back to 1595. Visitors can immerse themselves in the castle's history with a trip to the museum and a walk around the adjacent church. For those looking to experience the thrill of a bigger city, a car rental in Ahrensburg can facilitate a short drive to Hamburg (only 30km south) or even Berlin, the capital of Germany. In Hamburg, visitors can find a range of historical and cultural places of interest. The stunning Hamburg Rathaus, a quintessential gothic state building, should be the first port of call. There's also the fascinating Hamburg Museum, the Elbe Philharmonic Hall and the Maritime Museum. In summer, be sure to factor in a visit to one of Hamburg's many outdoor spaces, such as the modernist Heide Park of the beautiful Tierpark Hagenbeck. Rail enthusiasts will relish a visit to Hamburg's Miniatur Wunderland, the world's largest miniature railway.
