    Here is always something going on – bridge 10 there are many people, Harbour Cruises, the fish sandwich and a walk to the store city a great panoramic view of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall Plaza (free) enjoy - a must for photographers! I liked better, as the Jungfernstieg (to much shopping madness...)

    The port is 2nd in Europe, 15th in the world and home to hundreds of shipyards, warehouses, container yards. A very busy industry that has given Germany wealth and prestige throughout the centuries.  more »

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.
