Hamburg Travel Guide June 25 Jon Singleton Astros Jersey , 2012 | Author: marushastewartsenovich | Posted in Travel and Leisure
Hamburg is Germany’s second-largest city. Its grand merchants’ houses and magnificent promenades, international musicals, shopping malls and St. Pauli district give Hamburg a cosmopolitan feel. A touch of the exotic clings to the warehouse district and the city’s trademark canals. With its many parks and gardens, Hamburg is also Germany’s greenest city.
The port is the second-largest container terminal in Europe and Hafencity is Europe’s largest urban construction project. The river Elbe, where the port is located, has been vital in shaping the city’s development throughout history. The Alster lake is a recreational area in the heart of the city. Blankenese is an exclusive residential suburb; the baroque church of St. Michael is Hamburg’s most famous landmark. The Speicherstadt warehouse district is the world’s largest former warehouse complex – and last but not least there is the Reeperbahn, the renowned “red light district”.
Hamburg has more than 50 museums offering an informative, fun and educational experience, from the Museum of Art and Craft to special exhibitions in the Bucerius Art Forum to the miniature railway wonderland in the warehouse district. From Ernst Barlach House to the Hamburg Dungeon Jeff Bagwell Astros Jersey , there is no limit to art in Hamburg.
