Maritime flair in the Hansa City of Hamburg
Hamburg is a chic city with a very relaxed edge. Abundant water, entertainment and shopping opportunities characterize this north German city.
Combining maritime chic and an easy-going ambiance typical of north Germany, Hamburg, the metropolis on the River Elbe, captivates its guests. Countless boutiques and well-known designer stores lure shoppers to Hamburg’s Neustadt district. Close by you’ll find the Steigenberger Hotel Hamburg, making it an ideal starting point for a shopping trip. Head to the elegant Hafencity to enjoy the easy-going north German mood over a coffee with a view of the water. From here you can begin sightseeing in the historic Speicherstadt warehouse district. The Landungsbrücken piers are a must-see, where you can catch a boat to inspect the enormous ships in the nearby Port of Hamburg. If you want to relax, head to the Planten un Blomen park close to the Messe exhibition site. In the evenings the popular illuminated fountain concerts regularly take place here.
