The best campervans and motorhomes for hire in Hamburg
As Germany's largest port city, Hamburg has earned the nickname "gateway to the world" (Tor zur Welt). When you take a campervan or motorhome hire from Hamburg, the city will be your gateway to an incredible Northern European road trip experience.
Hamburg is one of Germany's most famous cities. Located on the Elbe River, it's a bustling hub of culture, commerce, history, and stunning architecture. Nearby access to the North and Baltic Seas, neighbouring Denmark, and a host of historic towns and cities make the port city an excellent starting point for an unforgettable campervan adventure around Schleswig-Holstein and beyond.
Campervan or motorhome hire is one of the best ways to experience Hamburg's fantastic outdoors. With so much to experience, the only challenge is trying to fit it all in.
The Hamburg Wadden Sea National Park , a UNESCO biosphere reserve, offers an incredible mix of islands, sandbanks, dunes, salt marshes, and more. The nearby Schleswig-Holstein Wadden Sea National Park also provides unparalleled campervan access to unspoiled nature, with seals and porpoises, some of the wildlife you can see.
Of course, these are just two of the region's incredible national parks. The Jasmund, Muritz, and Harz National Parks are all accessible from Hamburg. Between them, they make up essential stops on any campervan or motorhome hire trip around Central and Northern Germany.
Hamburg and its surrounding areas are rich with rivers, lakes, waterways, and preserved coastlines. Hiring a campervan or motorhome is an excellent way to access these natural attractions.
Hamburg is built on the River Elbe. You can follow the Elbe in a campervan or motorhome all the way to Germany's North West. For an alternative route, you can access the banks of the Baltic Sea and the German Riviera. Or, try this scenic Northern German road trip that takes in the enchanting Bremen, the beaches of Warnemünde, and the ornate palace on Lake Schwerin.
Those sites are just a taste of what you can see in a campervan or motorhome hire in Hamburg. The Alster Lakes near the city are unmissable. Ukleisee, Kleiner Bullensee, and Dümmer See are all iconic lakes that are well worth visiting on your own campervan or motorhome route.
There are lots of great campgrounds in the Hamburg area, but it's worth booking ahead to ensure there is space for your campervan or motorhome hire. Once you know what type of hire vehicle you want and your itinerary, you can check which campgrounds are on the way.
The Campsite Klausdorfer Strand is close to the Fehmarnsund Bridge that leads to Denmark. The campsite has excellent facilities, including motorhome power points, hot showers, saunas, and playgrounds.
East of Hamburg, the Ostsee-Camping Ferienpark Zierow sits on the Baltic Sea. It offers modern facilities for you and your campervan, including a swimming pool. Further east, you can find Wellness Camp Düne 6. The awarding-winning site has WiFi, sanitary facilities, saunas, and lots of activities for the kids.
Finally, if you are heading west, you can't miss the Wohnmobilstellplatz Hemenswarft an der Nordsee. While it might lack the sanitary facilities or comforts of the other camps, the pitches here give you access to the wild and rugged North Sea at a competitive price.
