Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
There is no shortage of things to do in Hamburg. Scenically set around rivers, lakes, and canals, this city is a maritime metropolis in every sense of the word. A major economic force throughout the Middle Ages, Germany’s still-prosperous harbor town, nicknamed “the gateway to the world”, continues its legacy of international trade to this day. Hamburg’s port has greatly contributed to the city’s diverse history and heritage. Neighborhoods range from historic to hipster, each a unique biome connected by the common thread of warm, welcoming locals. Though much of the old city was destroyed in fires and feuds, centuries later, its storied past is still very much tangible in the Gothic spires towering over trendy restaurants, neo-Renaissance landmarks, and 17th-century townhouses. But nowhere is the relationship between old and new Hamburg more evident than the extravagant Elbphilharmonie concert hall, a futuristic brick-and-glass architectural wonder perched atop an old warehouse on the Elbe river.
