I am going to visit Hamburg next week. I have booked tours to the Airbus factory and the apron tour of Hamburg Airport May I know where can I find plane models in Hamburg? Particularly Herpa 1:500 collections?
There are many shops in Hamburg that offer a certain number of herpa wings products.
Slightly off the beaten track but with a very large number of aircraft available is Hobby-Haus Hartfelder, Bramfelder Chaussee 251, 22177 Hamburg. As I do no longer live in Hamburg, it has been a while, so you better check with them in advance via e-mail, telephone etc.
Besides the mentioned shops (hartfelder is great by the way esp. for older models) there is another one downtown called wede. It is primarily a bookshop specialized in ships, planes and cars but it also stocks the latest herpa releases. See the link for further details:
Thanks for all the advice. Hamburg is a dream place for aviation enthusiastic!
I highly recommend the Airbus tour to everyone! It is so great and you got a chance to view the manufacturing process of Airbus A320s. The guide has a lot to tell us and it is fun and enjoyable. Luckily we are able to book a tour in English. It is an once in a life time experience!
I am so lucky to experience the take off of the Beluga!!
The miniatur wunderland is a must go too! the models are just speechless. let the photos speak
I have joined the Apron tour of Hamburg airport too. Unfortunately it was on Sunday so the traffic is not significant in the Airport. Moreover, because of the snow and heavy rain, it is not easy to take good photos. Nevertheless it was a good experience too
Lucky enough to witness the take off of EK B777-300ER, one of the biggest jet that serve Hamburg.
For buying models , i missed Hobby-Haus Hartfelder since it is quite far away from the city center and i didnt have time to go there However, I still get models from Wede and Miniatur Wunderland While you can buy a limited number of Herpa from Miniatur Wunderland (which is in good bargain), Wede maily sells the newest Herpa release.
