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.
