Washington, the national capital, is situated 130 miles (209 kilometers) southwest of Hamburg, while Lancaster is 40 miles (64 kilometers) to the southwest.
Hamburg isn't the only spot in Southeast Pennsylvania worth seeing; visitors can also head off and experience the magic of the nearby landscapes, communities and cultural attractions. If you'd like to find even more ways to enjoy the region, head to the Kutztown Fairgrounds and Kutztown University of Pennsylvania in and around Kutztown, which lays 11 miles (18 kilometers) to the west of Hamburg.
Reading, is another interesting place to head to. It is about 15 miles (24 kilometers) from Hamburg and offers a number of interesting visitor attractions, such as VF Outlet Center, Reading Public Museum and Greater Reading Expo Center. Blue Marsh Recreation Area, Berkshire Mall and FirstEnergy Stadium are also well-worth investigating while you are in Reading.
Visitors with an interest in history won't want to miss the region's traditional villages.
When the weather is right, make like a local and head to Southeast Pennsylvania's cooling waterways for a day of tubing or canoeing.
For those who plan on arriving and departing by air, it's handy to remember that the closest major airport is Lehigh Valley International Airport, 30 miles (48 kilometers) to the east of Hamburg.
