STAYING IN HAMBURG
Ask any Hamburger - as locals proudly call themselves - about what makes Hamburg so special and you'll get a different answer from everyone. Perhaps though it's the city's contrasting quarters and how it manages to contain such diversity that makes Hamburg so unique. From its Hanseatic mercantile past to the contemporary urban design of the futuristic HafenCity on the harbour, Hamburg offers plenty to see and do.
Germany's second-largest city has a wealth to offer for those travelling for business or leisure. Only a short walk away from your luxushotel in Rödingsmarkt, Speicherstadt is the ideal place to experience Hamburg's heritage. HafenCity is the beating heart of urban innovation, and also where you'll find a wealth of restaurants, museums, shopping and the Elbphilharmonie - one of the largest and most acoustically tuned concert halls globally. Party all night in St Pauli, home to Europe's longest party strip with plenty of bars, restaurants and late-night venues. Close to Hamburg Central Station, St Georg is a place to catch up with friends, go shopping, and hang out in the parks around the shores of Lake Alster.
