Hamburg - Where Water Rules
Hamburg is a river city, straddling the River Elbe, and that means river walks, cafes and restaurants and a buzzing nightlife! Boasting one of Germany's largest populations, Hamburg is also one of the wealthiest cities in Europe and it shows - the city is in a state of constant rebuilding and the place is clean and well-kept. Even the notorious Reeperbahn is relatively tidy!
Hamburg comes alive during summer. This is when the beach and riverside bars and restaurants throw open their doors and entertain their guests royally. That said, short breaks in Europe are ideal anytime!
There's plenty to see and do in Hamburg, including the opulent Rathaus, the Chile Haus, the Reeperbahn in St Pauli and river cruises galore. Hamburg is an easy city to get around and if you're up for it, hiring a coupe of bikes is the way to go. The city is relatively flat and there are cycle ways everywhere.
Eating can be an adventure for those curious about traditional German cuisine (such as eel!) and you'll find plenty of restaurants that challenge you! Ideal fare for romantic breaks? We dare you!
