Hamburg, Germany’s second largest city, enthuses visitors with its individual charm and traditional Hanseatic hospitality. The numerous waterways and canals resemble Venice in Italy.
The Hanseatic city of Hamburg, on the banks of the river Elbe and often known as the "Venice of the North", offers North-German charm, metropolitan flair and a fair dose of serenity. A canal tour along Hamburg's 23 canals displays the mysterious side of the city. Meanwhile, seven centuries of art, from medieval to contemporary, are waiting to be explored by art lovers in Hamburg's Kunsthalle. In contrast, the Portuguese quarter - a rarity in Germany - provides an Iberian atmosphere, with delicious food and a unique flair.
As soon as the night draws in, Hamburg’s vibrant nightlife begins. The city’s Reeperbahn is an entirely different part of the city. Here the night turns into day 365 days a year. The clubs of St. Pauli and the Reeperbahn make anyone feel young at heart. Between quaint bars and ‘ladies of the night’, much of Hamburg's sinful street offers a wicked ambience. On the other hand, the Schanzenviertel opens its arms to anyone who would rather enjoy a relaxed night out in a bar.
