Tradition and style in a modern harbor

Hamburg’s historic origin is the river Elbe and its natural harbor, but now, life there pulses on every street as a small but buzzing metropolis. Many believe that the city is laid-back and even boring, yet a visit to the Reeperbahn’s tantalizing nightlife will quickly change one’s mind. A mixture of classes in the city give Hamburg an interestingly appealing diversity – there’s something to be discovered by everyone. The city is bustling and energetic, beloved for both its contemporary scene as well as for its cultural offerings.
