Hamburg Among the World's Top Ten Fun Cities

Online survey evaluates more than 1,800 cities all around the world in regard to fun criteria

Hamburg stands out from cities such as Barcelona and Las Vegas. In terms of fun, the Hanseatic city is one of the most attractive cities in the world. This is the result of an analysis of the multi-mode travel platform GoEuro and the online tour booking platform GetYourGuide, which compared 1,800 cities around the world on the basis of online reviews along various criteria available for entertainment, variety and fun. The comparison clearly shows: Hamburg is the number six of the world’s top ten “Fun Cities”.

Eleven factors analyses

In their worldwide comparison, GoEuro and GetYourGuide analysed and compared eleven factors. Activities on offer, clubs, clubs, bars, erotic offers,, shopping, museums, concerts, sport clubs, closing times of restaurants, and the beer price index were criteria evaluated in the comparison of cities. “Our evaluation is based on reviews in prestigious platforms such as Yelp or TripAdvisor”, said Robin Wilfert, Creative Director of GoEuro.

Hamburg scores with nightlife and culture

The evaluation showed: Hamburg can easily keep up with other world cities in regard to the fun factor. “Especially with a thriving nightlife, the Elbe city scored excellent points”, said Wilfert. Assets were also Hamburg’s varied cultural scenes and broad cultural offerings. “Hamburg offers visitors a lot of culture and diversity. This catapulted the city to the top ten by world standards.”
