It may be Germany’s second largest city, but Hamburg is often overlooked by travelers who prefer Berlin’s storied history and vibrant nightlife or Munich’s whimsical Bavarian charm. Nevertheless, a few days’ stay in the port city once dubbed “Gateway to the World” and you’ll unearth a heady mix of unpretentious attractions and edgy fun among its gregarious, open-minded residents. The northern suburb of Eppendorf, situated near Hamburg’s international airport, has plenty of leafy parks and riverside walks that provide a more serene option for a vacation stay than in the busy city center. Here are 10 of the best Airbnb vacation rentals in the area.

1. Gorgeous rooftop apartment with river view (from USD 83)

This gem of a rooftop loft ticks all the right boxes: Gorgeous decor, alluring river vistas and easy reach for public transport to Hamburg’s city center. A five-minute walk from the suburban center and subway station, the loft exudes a homely charm with its shelf-full of books, well-stocked kitchen, and lovely balcony garden. Its bedroom for two offers a great view of the Alster river channel that cuts through Eppendorf. If you can beat the urge to stay snug inside this loft, you can take a gentle stroll down the Alster, or walk to the cafes, restaurants and fashion shops along the suburb’s main road, the Eppendorfer Landstrasse.

3. Private room close to public transport (from USD 31)

Source: Airbnb

Like most German cities, Hamburg is well-served by its public transport. Buses and subway trains will connect you to most parts of the city without much fuss. So it would be a good idea to look for lodging options near these transport services, such as this cozy private room in west Eppendorf, which is just a minute’s walk away from the bus stop and 10 minutes from the subway station. From there, you can conveniently make your way towards attractions like the Hamburg Dungeon or the Minature Wunderland, both of which are located in the southern part of Hamburg’s city center.
