GLS***95There are many exciting things in Hamburg, and this fantastic tunnel is at the top of the list. Hamburg made me appreciate the beauty of industry and this stretch of tiled and lit road really is beautiful. Open 24/7 it's probably best enjoyed late at night.
GLS***95Hamburg's fine art museum, on display, is a substantial collection of European and German art that spans centuries. Plenty of heavy-hitters like Claude Monet and Ernst Ludwig Kirchner as well as lesser-known artists, at least to me. We really enjoyed ourselves here.
Pippa BatesThis attraction is worth visiting possibly if the weather is bad outside, as it was when I was in the city, and you want to do something fun indoors for a few hours. The Dungeon's are a fun way to learn a little bit about the history of the city, the interesting and alternative parts of the history, which you may not hear on a walking tour. The actors and actress are great, and really get into character, involving the audience and picking on certain members to participate.

St. Michael's Church Hauptkirche Sankt Michaelis colloquially called Michel is one of Hamburg's five Lutheran main churches (Hauptkirchen) and one of the most famous churches in the city. St. Michaelis is a landmark of the city and it is considered to be one of the finest Hanseatic Protestant baroque churches. The church was purposely built Protestant unlike many other Hamburg churches which were originally built by Roman Catholics and were converted to Protestantism during the Reformation. It is dedicated to the Archangel Michael. A large bronze statue, standing above the portal of the church shows the archangel conquering the devil. The 132-meter high Baroque spire totally covered with copper is a prominent feature of Hamburg's skyline and has always been a landfall mark for ships sailing up the river Elbe. The present church building is the third one at this site. The first one was built from 1647 to 1669. It became the church of the new town (Neustadt), which was created in 1625 inside the new city walls, and which grew steadily since. In 1687, the Michel became the fifth chapter church (Hauptkirche), as the new town (Neustadt) became a parish. That church was destroyed on March 10, 1750, by a lightning strike. The original church has been replicated and built in 9 different cities around the world.
In 1786, a new construction following the design of Johann Leonhard Prey [de] and Ernst Georg Sonnin [de] was completed. This is the church as we know it today. It was reconstructed twice in the 20th century: after catching fire in 1906 during construction work and after the bombings of 1944 and 1945. After the 1906 fire, the photos of Wilhelm Weimar were used to help recreate the church.Since 1983, renovation is ongoing: first the spire and then the roof.
The composer and pianist Johannes Brahms was baptized on May 26, 1833 in this church and confirmed at the age of fifteen by Pastor von Ahlsen, who had married Brahms's parents.
#mynovgetaway Hamburg, a major port city in northern Germany, is connected to the North Sea by the Elbe River. It's crossed by hundreds of canals, and also contains large areas of parkland. Near its core, Inner Alster lake is dotted with boats and surrounded by cafes. The city's central Jungfernstieg boulevard connects the Neustadt (new town) with the Altstadt (old town), home to landmarks like 18th-century St. Michael’s Church.
One of Germany's 16 federal states, it is surrounded by Schleswig-Holstein to the north and Lower Saxony to the south. The city's metropolitan region is home to more than five million people. Hamburg lies on the River Elbe and two of its tributaries, the River Alster and the River Bille.
The official name reflects Hamburg's history as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League and a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire. Before the 1871 Unification of Germany, it was a fully sovereign city state, and before 1919 formed a civic republic headed constitutionally by a class of hereditary grand burghers or Hanseaten. Beset by disasters such as the Great Fire of Hamburg, North Sea flood of 1962 and military conflicts including World War II bombing raids, the city has managed to recover and emerge wealthier after each catastrophe.
Hamburg is Europe's third-largest port. Major regional broadcaster NDR, the printing and publishing firm Gruner + Jahr and the newspapers Der Spiegel and Die Zeit are based in the city. Hamburg is the seat of Germany's oldest stock exchange and the world's oldest merchant bank, Berenberg Bank. Media, commercial, logistical, and industrial firms with significant locations in the city include multinationals Airbus, Blohm + Voss, Aurubis, Beiersdorf, and Unilever. Hamburg is also a major European science, research, and education hub, with several universities and institutions. The city enjoys a very high quality of living, being ranked 19th in the 2019 Mercer Quality of Living Survey.
Hamburg wouldn't be the economic force it is today without the river Elbe. At about 100 km from the North Sea, the Elbe, at least since the days of the Hanseatic League, has been the city's gateway to the planet. It's fair to say Hamburg owes this mighty river its ethnic vibe and worldly character.
At the Hamburg Red light district in Germany. You definitely should go and have a stroll in the red light district even if you’re not into these kind of activities. The place is huge, several streets of bars, clubs, pubs and restaurants. The drinks are bery affordable too considering that it’s in the city proper. German beer is definitely one of the top for me so it’s a must try. Would definitely come back if I get the chance.
A sail ship during the Hamburg Port Anniversary. This Extraordinary maritime event is celebrated yearly in the month of May. Huge crowds visit Hamburg to join the fun. There are parties and all sort of events all around of Hamburg.
Visited Beinhaus St. Joseph Kirche in Hamburg, Germany. Beautiful baroque church in the middle of the red light district. It’s location is very intriguing and good to see that religion and businesses can co-exist in harmony.
Normally, the harbour festival is the biggest festival of the year in Hamburg. Not this year, so this might be the closest to it: The return of the Peking, the big sail ship. It was built here, but funnily, it didn't go to China very often. It mostly served trade routes between here and South America .
