Hamburg is the most popular German city when it comes to stag dos – and it’s no surprise why. With many activities centred around the world-renowned Reeperbahn, Hamburg’s very own Red Light District, lots of football-based activities and a whole host of unique bars and beer halls to get stuck into, there’s nothing quite like Hamburg’s activity offering. Hamburg on the whole, attracts stags who love beer, stripper-filled nightlife and fast-paced activities like shooting and paintballing, but who want to go a little more outside-the-box than the likes of Prague, Budapest or Amsterdam.
Hamburg has around 60 stag-friendly activities to choose from, ranging from the crazy, blood-pumping, to the beer-swilling and much needed hangover-curing. As soon as you crash land onto Hamburg turf, you need to make sure that you and the lads are well and truly looked after, so a Hummer or Limo transfer should definitely be on the cards, with a uniformed driver and a surprise stripper, of course. If it’s beer you’re after, Hofbrauhaus beer hall is where you need to be, with live Oompah bands and dancing on the benches absolutely acceptable, or you could even plump for combining a bit of local culture with your drinking, on a Holsten or Ratsherrn Brewery tour. You’ll have noticed that beer is the common theme with Hamburg stag activities – and sightbeering is no different. Walking around the main tourist attractions with a guide, learning all about your host city, with pit stops in the city’s best bars? It’s a win-win.
Hamburg’s nightlife is everything you expect and more, but we tend to find that if stags have never been to the city before, they need a bit of guidance on the very best places to party. Our guided bar crawls are extremely popular, with night club and strip club entries included, making sure that you don’t miss out on Hamburg’s top places to get smashed.
Among the most popular activities in the whole city is the beer bike – it’s the most enquired about activity in Hamburg, with a huge reputation preceding it. Even if you’re not a multitasker, we reckon you could manage sightseeing, pedalling and drinking 20 litres of beer on your stag do – it’s a great way to get to grips with the layout of a new city, whilst keeping yourselves topped up on the booze. Another extremely popular and different activity in Hamburg is the Hot Rod Tour, where you’ll be able to sightsee your host city from behind the steering wheels of these vintage, classic American cars.
If it’s fast-paced you’re after, you could go for waterskiing, hone your skills on the high ropes, get your fingers behind the triggers with a shooting package or opt for a paintball showdown. But, we’ve left our trump card until last – and that comes in the form of vehicle vandalising. We’ll provide you with all the vandalising equipment you could possibly need (we’ve got sledgehammers, mallets, the lot) and a car that you can let your anger out on. Tip: pretend it’s your ex’s new car and you’ll have it smashed to little pieces in minutes.
Bubble football is also a popular one in Hamburg. If you’ve never done it before, imagine football meets dodgems meets zorbing – this is taking a kick about with your mates to the next level. Strap your Lederhosen on tight, your Hamburg stag weekend is going to be a bumpy ride…
