Attractions in Hamburg

  
Hamburg Town Hall

Hamburg Town Hall was built from 810_9445.jpg
1886 to 1897 and with its impressive
architecture dominates the centre of
the city. The magnificent sandstone
building houses the city's senate and
parliament.


 
Elbphilharmonie Hamburg

The Elbphilharmonie Hamburg is truly 810_9288.jpg
building of superlatives and has set
itself the goal of becoming one of the
ten best concert halls in the world. The
fact that it has the best chances to get
there is not only due to the spectacular
architecture, but also to the
unique acoustics.

 


Port of Hamburg

About 13,000 ships from all over the 810_9170.jpg
world
 call at Europe's second largest
port. From the cruise ship terminal
to the historic 'Speicherstadt'
warehouse district and the landing
bridges to the 
modern container
port
 - aromas here redolent of
freedom and far-away lands.




Speicherstadt Hamburg

The century-old Speicherstadt, the 810_9457.jpg
world's largest contiguous warehouse
complex, is located in the Freihafen 
(free-port) between Deichtorhallen and
Baumwall. An idyll that one would
hardly imagine finding in a world port
waits there for visitors to Hamburg.
Wilhelmine brick Gothic from the late
nineteenth century, bizarre gables and
turrets which reflect the barges in
the canals.



Jungfernstieg

It is the heart of the city centre for 810_9349.jpg
many locals and tourists: the
Jungfernstieg - a diverse
connection between the Inner Alster
and the surrounding shops and
attractions.




The Fish Market

A legend and a must-see for all 810_9180.jpg
visitors to Hamburg: Since 1703, 
pretty much everything that is not
bolted down has been traded here at
Hamburg's most traditional market.
From dusty porcelain jugs to a chirpy
family of ducks, you can find just about
anything in the shadow of the 100-year
old fish auction hall.
