Attractions in Hamburg

  
Hamburg Town Hall

Hamburg Town Hall was built from
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
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 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
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 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 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.
