Free (& almost free) Activities for families in Hamburg


L is for Leisure.

One thing you can be certain you'll find in Germany is a park. This is probably the case for a city in any part of the world, whether big or small there is going to be a park.

In Germany, summers are best enjoyed grilling with friends at a park, near a lake or at the beach.

10 things to do in Hamburg.
With our return to Hamburg a month and a half away I have researched things to do in the city during the summer that will keep us occupied until school starts in September. While Leisure itself can be many things, I find leisure in spending time with my family.
