Tradition and style in a modern harbor

Hamburg’s origin is the river Elbe and its natural harbor, but life there now pulses on every street, unexpectedly. Many believe that the city is laid-back and even boring, forgetting that the Reeperbahn is probably the most sinful mile in the world. Poverty amidst great wealth give Hamburg an interestingly appealing diversity – there’s something to be discovered by everyone, experienced and marveled at every day. The city is bustling and energetic, beloved for both its contemporary scene as well as for its cultural offerings.

Where lullabies still live

Stay Editor's Note

The Johannes-Brahms-Museum, part of the Beyling foundation, displays an array of keepsakes from the composer’s life and work. Letters, photographs, concert programs and other important documents are here to discover.

While discovering more depth into the live and music of Brahms, visitors to this area can also take in Panten un Blomen park, as well as the Museum of Hamburg’s History. The whole area of Peterstraße is in fact, one giant historical street, well worth the time and effort.
