Port of Hamburg, Hamburg

#1 of 16 in Parks in Hamburg
Often called the country's Gateway to the World, Port of Hamburg is Germany's largest port and one of the world's busiest. The harbor covers about 74 sq km (26 sq mi), taking advantage of the branching Elbe River. Visit the port, which is almost as old as the city itself, to see how many of the old warehouses have changed into contemporary museums, bars, shops, restaurants, and hotels. Ultramodern buildings stand right next to well-preserved pearls of 19th-century architecture.

    Whatever the weather it is a magical place that remains: warehouses, cranes and contemporary architectural... A beautiful Alchemy which reminds that in Germany also we have an idea of the sea.

    We have made a harbour cruise and looked at the Elbe Philharmonic Hall. The concert hall is a new landmark of the city and a "heritage for all". Must you have looked at.

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.
