Hamburg’s world famous red light district stretches along either side of the Reeperbahn, the charmingly kitsch backbone of the proudly alternative St. Pauli. The ‘Kiez’ took shape right on the city limits, a home for outcasts and vagabonds who had nowhere else to settle. The legendary nightlife that makes it so popular highlights the tolerance of a neighborhood that has seen (and survived) it all: riots, prostitution, drugs, organized crime, world wars, booms and busts. Discover this quarter and the harbor that forms the heart of the city during a 2-hour guided walking tour.

As the country's biggest port and one of the busiest in all of Europe, Hamburg has a well-deserved reputation as Germany's Gateway to the World. A city-state of sorts, it enjoys a large degree of independence from the rest of the country. Hamburg is one of the most affluent cities in Europe. A center of media, industry, and finance, the city is the seat of one of the world's oldest banks. It's also home to more than 10,000 private businesses. Often cited as one of the friendliest and most livable cities in Europe, Hamburg is a popular vacation spot for both domestic and foreign visitors. Its proud mercantile background is reflected in the architecture of warehouses-turned-museums, such as the International Maritime Museum and Museum of Hamburg History. Hamburg is an open city that has never been shy of its success. Explore the vibrant neighborhoods near the water, known for their multicultural eateries, thriving music scene, and array of things to do. Our Germany trip planner allows you to schedule your trip to Hamburg, learn about its attractions, and find out about where else to go during your holiday.

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.
