Hotel Reservations in Hamburg
Step out from your luxury hotel in Hamburg into one of the most affluent cities in Europe. The port of Hamburg is the basis for the city's historical wealth, but the tourism, media, and transportation industries have helped to maintain that status.
Start your tour of Hamburg at Alster Lakes. The Lake divides the city into two, Binnenalster at the south (Inner Alster) and Aussenalster (Outer Alster). Binnenalster is comprised of high-end commercialism like luxury hotels, shopping, and cafés. Aussenalster is abundant with private mansions and lush gardens.
An architectural tour of the city sends you to Harvestehude where you can see the world's tallest building from 1874 to 1876. The Church of St. Nikolas (St.-Nikolai-Kirche) is in ruins due to the air raids of World War II, but it is still standing. In Mönckebergstraße you will the Rathaus (city hall), a beautiful neo-Renaissance style building. For a modern landmark, the Chilehaus, resembling a ship's prow is a stunning example of Brick Expressionism.
With half of the newspapers and magazines, as well as radio and television broadcasting based in Hamburg, the city is the heart of Germany's media industry.
To gain an understanding of Hamburg's maritime achievements, the warehouse district along the canal and the harbor promenade (Landungsbrücken) are worth a visit. Docked at the Hamburg cruise terminal is the Queen Mary 2 - the largest ocean liner ever built.
