Hamburg, Germany’s gateway to the world
The one thing everybody knows about Hamburg is the party and red-light district near the harbour, St. Pauli. You will find this mix of legendary clubs and bars between brothels and theatres between Reeperbahn and Große Freiheit. The Beatles famously played for 2 years here for up to eight hours per night, before they became a worldwide phenomenon.
History, harmony and fish
Hamburg is also rich in much older history as a member of and the most important city in the Hanseatic League, a powerful federation of German cities during the late medieval period. A whole inner city of storage houses, called „Speicherstadt“, is a part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage today. Here you will also find the new concert hall „Elbphilharmonie“, which is a highlight for both friends of classical music and modern architecture alike. The most famous landmark of Hamburg is the St.Michaels cathedral, called “Michel”. It is built entirely of red bricks like many buildings in northern Germany. The high tower had been used by seamen as an orientation point, you can still climb up and see for miles over the city and the surrounding flat landscape. The classic to-do’s for the Hamburg tourist is a boat tour through the harbour and a stroll over the famous fish market. Try the typical „Fischbrötchen“, a bread roll filled with different kinds of fresh fish. Whether you want to party, see historic monuments or go on a shopping tour, Germany’s second biggest city Hamburg offers it all.
