HAMBURG - MODERN, URBAN, HANSEATIC
As one of the most important port cities in Europe, Hamburg presents itself as cosmopolitan, liberal and utterly modern. At the same time, however, Germany's "gateway to the world" has still retained a touch of maritime nostalgia and cultivates its tradition as a Hanseatic mercantile city. In recent years, the city on the Elbe has become more and more popular with visitors from Germany and abroad. A special milestone was the opening of Elbphilharmonie concert hall at the beginning of 2017, which convincingly resolved a major problem of Hamburg tourism, namely the lack of an unmistakable landmark building. What also charactertizes the Hanseatic city is the unique diversity of its districts: Historic sights and shopping in the city centre, alternative lifestyle in the trendy "Schanze", St. Georg and St. Pauli districts, elegant boutiques and upscale gastronomy in the chic residential districts around the Alster or relaxed strolling and ship watching at the harbour fringe or in the noble Elbe suburbs: Hamburg shows its visitors a different face at every corner.
