I had an amazing time at the Maritime Museum in Hamburg! It was a delightful surprise with a vast collection of ship models. The staff was incredibly friendly, and I was pleasantly surprised to find discounted entrance in the afternoon. The only minor hiccup was that everything was in German, but it didn't diminish the overall experience. Would definitely recommend, A must-visit for maritime enthusiasts! ⚓?

The museum is huge so you should be ready to spend there at least 3 hours. I really liked that you can interact with objects. So if you are usually bored in museums it can entertain you. You can also grab a coffee in the middle of the exhibition.

Amazing museum! We went to Miniatur Wunderland before, and it was a welcome reprieve. There are 10 floors (decks) of exhibits to see and every bit of it was fascinating! My favorite sections were the U-Boat, history of world Navies, and the gold and ivory (art) section. The whaling and off-shore drilling sections were also interesting! Honestly, it's hard to pick a favorite part. Didn't take too many photos because I felt so immersed in every exhibit. A highlight was the really nice employee that scanned our tickets! He was so friendly and funny! I would definitely come back.

Huge museum! Make sure you have good shoes on! This is how museums should be! Well designed,loads to see,huge variety of objects. Every floor brought new themes to explore. Definitely plan more than three hours for this must see museum. Staff were very friendly and helpful. As a British visitor was grateful for many information points written in English,but would have liked more. If you visit Hamburg this should definitely be on your to-do list!

One of the best museums ever visited. Ideal for those who appreciate the evolution of a technology from early ages to the modern day. Goes without saying how the past world wars have had a huge push in these innovations and developments. The museum has more than 7 floors of all interesting showcases, need to budget enough time to visit.

Broch of Gurness

The Broch of Gurness is an Iron Age broch village. Settlement here began sometime between 500 and 200 BC. At the centre of the settlement is a stone tower or broch, which once probably reached a height of around 10 metres. Its interior is divided into sections by upright slabs. The tower features two skins of drystone walls, with stone-floored galleries in between. These are accessed by steps. Stone ledges suggest that there was once an upper storey with a timber floor. The roof would have been thatched, surrounded by a wall walk linked by stairs to the ground floor. The broch features two hearths and a subterranean stone cistern with steps leading down into it. It is thought to have some religious significance, relating to an Iron Age cult of the underground.

The remains of the central tower are up to 3.6 metres high, and the stone walls are up to 4.1 metres thick.
