Alternative: Luggage storage at museums and galleries in Hamburg
With more than 50 museums and something unusual to experience at every corner, this North German City has a very active and diverse cultural life. It might be more difficult to enjoy it, though, if you find yourself unable to enter a place you’ve been dying to visit because of your trolley. We’ve made a quick list of all the main tourist attractions in Hamburg and their locker situation so that you’re up-to-speed:
- Miniatur Wunderland – smaller items can be stowed in the lockers provided, while larger ones need to be taken to the cloakroom for €0.5
- Hamburg Kunsthalle – you can leave their luggage in the cloakroom but are allowed with a small handbag inside
- Elbe Philharmonic Hall (Elbphilharmonie)– security checks all bags at the entrance and items larger than a purse, baby carriages, wheeled walkers, walking-stick umbrellas, backpacks and suitcases have to be left at the cloakroom, for a fee of €1.5
- Panik City – there is no possibility to leave your bags on location
- Museum of Art and Industry (Museum für Kunst und Gewerbe Hamburg) – There is a cloakroom in the foyer and lockers in the basement. You can also get a carrier bag for your valuables free of charge.
Most hotels do offer to keep your bags for a few hours before your check-in or after checking out. Your best bet is to simply ask. If your hotel is a bit out of the way from your sightseeing itinerary or means of transportation, you’d want to consider a luggage storage service that is more conveniently located.
