What’s seems so special about Hamburg? What does Hamburg offer what other german cities doesn’t?
My answer is quite simple: it is water. Water is everywhere in and around the city. The airport near the city center and a great harbour which could make Rotterdam jealous. More than a million inhabitants who are super cool and relaxed and speak with a cute German accent. Although they seem to be uncommunicative at first sign, it is not like that. They are very kind and lovely.
Also, the nature. From the airplane you will see more green places than the city itself. Of course the famous nightlife district which is also a world of pimps and prostitutes.
And did you know that Hamburg has the most bridges in Europe? Yups – more than Venice, Amsterdam and London TOGETHER! Unbelievable right? Yes, that’s Hamburg Ladies and Gentlemen.
My personal highlights of Hamburg & sign seeing spots.
Have a look at the harbour by night. The best option is to be at the Elbchausee or if it’s not possible for you then: Pamaile near the town hall.
Romantic walk around the Elbstrand.
If you love to go shopping or going out the St. Pauli District will be perfect for you!
