The picturesque houses were built in the 18th century and have miraculously survived the Great Fire of 1842, the renovations waves of the early 20th century, and even World War II. Revel in a piece of Hamburg's rich history, and stop in at one of the many traditional restaurants and boutiques that line the Nikolaifleet port.

    These pretty buildings used to be ancient warehouses with the canal running on one side and a street at the back. Now they are upmarket blocks of flats. A piece of Hanseatic history  more »

    Can't miss a souvenir picture of these beautiful houses on the river! Sounds like a pretty picture, walking a bit to the narrow streets.

    Nice spot to relax on a terrassje in the street but don't forget to take a walk through to go and the pontaons the back of the facades of the buildings with the last 16 and 17 century in Hamburg. The street is now a leading up to the visitors to the Elbfhilharmonie and riute that makes it even cozier. But you have to be from the busy city.

Where to stay in Hamburg

The most dynamic part of the city is the St. Pauli area, also known as Kiez. This is where tourists and locals brush shoulders among the many bars, shops, and sites. Jungfernsteig, or Neuer Wall, is an upmarket area with brand name shopping and luxury dining. Consider a stay in the bohemian quarters of Altona or the Sternschanze/Schanzenviertel. These areas burst with character and offer out-of-the-ordinary shopping and dining experiences at lower prices.
