#6 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Hamburg
Neighborhood Landmark
Take a stroll along Deichstrasse, the oldest street in Old Hamburg. This canal-side street dates back to the 14th century and sits adjacent to the Speicherstadt, the city's warehouse district. 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.

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.
