A mixture of modern and old, cosmopolitan and bold, Hamburg offers more than just maritime heritage. A beautiful waterfront with a bustling port, sound of gulls, and smell of fresh fish wafting through the air, it’s impossible not to latch onto the maritime spirit. Just as it boldly claims to be the “gateway to the world”, Hamburg is definitely not shy with its vibrant yet dauntless Red Light District. Along with its lively and open culture, this city has a richly decorated town hall with neo-renaissance buildings that will leave you in awe. At night, be captivated by the spectacular views of the city with its dazzling, brilliant-yellow harbour lights, while during daytime, wander around its shiny modern buildings and you may also find plenty of gems along its narrow cobblestone streets. With such diversity in its architecture and culture, this beautiful metropolis is bound to take your breath away.
