About Hamburg

Germany's second-largest city and biggest port is not shy wallflower: it has long taken pride in its history of trade with the world (and the wealth that has created) since joining medieval trading association the Hanseatic League in the Middle Ages. But despite its role as a wealthy economic stronghold, Hamburg isn't a boring, sterile business port: it's lively Reeperbahn red light district is one of the world’s most popular, filled with provocative bars, shops, and prostitutes, yet very safe for the tourist practicing common sense. Its maritime spirit shines through everywhere you look: from fantastic seafood to waterfront parks, port cruise tours to the shipping warehouse complex of Speicherstadt. It's here that you can also explore a miniature model town at Miniatur Wunderland. True to German culture, Hamburg loves its open-air markets: Rathausmarkt takes place in the central square and offers visitors a taste of authentic German food (though the American hamburger had its origins here, true Hamburger cuisine tends more to pan-fried fish and the regional pastry FranzbröThen.) The city has a long love affair with music as well, being the birthplace of Johannes Brahms and an primary incubator of the Beatles. For all its charms, Hamburg has maintained a relatively low profile on the world tourist map. Yet has plenty to dig into from historic buildings to modern theater.

Exhibition Hall

Miniatur Wunderland is located in the Speicherstadt city. It has the largest CNC railway model scene in the world and was selected into the Guinness Book of World Records. Visitors are impressed by the scenes and details of railroad tracks, trains, statues and buildings. Thousands of houses and bridges, hundreds of thousands of trees and single-person statues have created magnificent scenes in a certain proportion. Tens of thousands of lights add to the beauty of this miniature railway.

Speicherstadt was once a very large comprehensive storage area in Europe in the 19th century. In 2005, it was elected into the "World Cultural Heritage" list. Its blocks are distributed with museums, design studios, dance schools, restaurants, etc., making it a new tourist attraction in Hamburg. Visitors who want to experience the bustling of the city, can take a romantic small motorboat on the Elbe River and have a look at the street or a building in the Speicherstadt building complex.
