Hamburg Alster Lake

With 1.8 million inhabitants, Hamburg is the second-biggest city in Germany and it offers singular features to its guests: Arts and culture at its finest, worldwide successful musicals, superior and entertaining theatre, a great variety of hotels, excellent restaurants, exquisite shopping possibilities, exciting night life and loads of historical landmarks that were left by the 1200 years old history of the city.
Hamburg is young, modern, friendly and open to the world - and a city full of contrasts at the same time. On the one hand, the colourful and simultaneously poorest quarter of the city, St. Pauli with its Reeperbahn, the most sinful mile in the world. On the other hand the rich and tidy quarter Blankenese with its numerous villas and romantic-beautiful views from the Elbhang and the lower beaches of the river Elbe. Each corner of Hamburg looks different but nevertheless everything joins together harmonically. And in the Port of Hamburg, in the heart of the city, ships from all over the world land.
The "Altstadt" (Old City) really is the oldest quarter of Hamburg and the main attraction for many tourists. The most well-known are probably the Chilehaus (Chile House) and the Kontorhäuser (Office Buildings) at Burchardplatz but also Sprinkenhof, Mohlenhof and Messberghof are popular destinations for tourists.

At some places the "old Hamburg" can be pictured very well, e.g. in Cremon street. Here, you could formerly find store and residential houses with a loading canal and a street front so that trade goods could be transported by land as well as by sea. Deichstrasse (Dyke Street), an old traders' street with store and residential houses from the 17th to the 19th century also reminds of old times. Numerous excellent restaurants and pubs invite you to stay.
