Perhaps though it's the city's contrasting quarters and how it manages to contain such diversity that makes Hamburg so unique.

Whether travelling to Hamburg for business or leisure, there's so much to explore in the neighbourhoods surrounding your luxury apartment.
Your Hamburg hotel can be found in Rödingsmarkt in Hamburg's Mitte district, placing you in the heart of the action. Travelling for business? You're in the centre of Hamburg's CBD and close to the offices of some of Germany's and the globe's top companies. Once the business day is over, however, you won't lack for a variety of things to see and do.
One of the best ways to see the city centre is on foot. From your luxushotel in the Hamburg CBD, turn left and cross the Alsterfleet canal to Neustadt (New Town). For upmarket shopping, turn right onto Neuer Wall and take in the nighttime vibe. Walk up Neuer Wall to Inner Alster Lake (Binnenalster) to Alex Hamburg along the foreshore - an ideal place to relax and enjoy some people watching over a coffee and a meal with great views of the lake. On the Altstadt (Old Town) side, check out the Rathaus - Hamburg's impressive Town Hall - and head south to the Speicherstadt warehouse district and shop the UNESCO World Heritage site's boutique shopping and galleries.
A city in which the ancient and the modern exist side-by-side, Hamburg’s incredible blend of architectural styles, fascinating landmarks, and many bridges make it one of the most photogenic places you could visit. Find out about Hamburg’s most Instagrammable spots.
Hamburg's abundance of lakes and waterways make for some spectacular scenery and urban wandering, and much of Hamburg's daily life revolves around the inner and outer Alster Lakes. Step outside your luxury serviced apartment in the Hamburg CBD and take the Rödingsmarkt U-Bahn one stop north to Rathaus station. During the summer months, grab a kayak or Stand Up Paddle Board and try your skills on the water, then spend a lazy few hours in one of the numerous lakeside cafés. The Lombardsbrücke (bridge) is an ideal place to grab an Instagram-worthy holiday snap.
In many respects, Hamburg is a city defined by water. The city has more canals than Amsterdam and Venice combined, and more bridges straddle its waterways than any other city in the world. It's no wonder then that getting around by boat is one of the best ways to see Hamburg. The city's ferries are one of the easiest and most convenient ways to get on the water - the HVV public transport ticket works for all ferries as well. The 30-minute trip to Finkenwerder island takes in Hamburg's top sights from the water and provides a sense of the industry and activity surrounding the harbour.
Close to your apartment in Hamburg in Neustadt you'll find the St Pauli Landungsbrücken (St Pauli Piers). One of the best things to see and do in Hamburg, the piers are a hub for harbourside life, dining and entertainment. Many ferries leave from the piers daily, and the site is also the best place to start when exploring notable nearby attractions including the old Elbe tunnel and two museum ships, the Rickmer Rickmers and the Cap San Diego.
The nearby Hamburg Fischmarkt is not only one of Hamburg's top attractions but also the place locals go to buy their fish, fruit and catch up with friends. The Sunday morning crowd is a mix of early risers and those that decided to skip sleep altogether. It's just as acceptable to chow down on a local fish sandwich with a coffee as it is to enjoy a beer or three. The atmosphere crackles with the noise of morning revelry, from the shouts of the market barkers proclaiming their wares to the cacophony of live bands and morning partygoers. From your hotel in the Hamburg CBD, take the U-Bahn to Landungsbrücken then the ferry to Fischmarkt.
St Pauli in Neustadt is where Hamburg - and a goodly bit of Europe - comes to party. Reeperbahn, Europe's longest nightlife strip is a beautiful and eclectic neon mess, and it's utterly enchanting. Reeperbahn is awash with restaurants, bars, clubs and some more colourful additions.
St. Pauli doesn't really come alive until midnight, but it's easy to start 'early' at bars like Glanz & Gloria or Christiansen's Fine Drinks & Cocktails on Pinnasberg. Getting to St Pauli from your Hamburg hotel is easy - take the U-Bahn from Rödingsmarkt to Landungsbrücken then transfer to Reeperbahn on the S1 S-Bahn line.
The people of Hamburg have been brewing beer for more than 1,000 years, and that fine tradition is being continued by breweries large and small. The city is a top German destination for beer-lovers, and no visit is complete without exploring at least some of those establishments. Read our blog and discover Hamburg’s best breweries.
