In continuous transformation, this “Venice of the North” unites a large port to the charm of the Jugendstil historic centre – a place where you can breathe liberty and pride in the air.
For everything that Hamburg is, it is also the contrary. It’s not just a city, but it’s a city-state, literally a “free and Hanseatic city”, independent and proud to come from the late Medieval period. It’s the second biggest port in Europe and the second biggest city in Germany, but it’s also the richest in the country and has the most bridges (2,300). The beauty of green spaces and the slowly flowing rivers with swans add to the charm of this industrial port and the Levantine character of its seamen.The historic centre, L’Altstadt, is a perfect “Venice of the North”, with romantic houses on the water and old art nouveau-style buildings that alternate along the shopping streets such as Jungfernstieg, Neuer Wall e Spitalerstrasse. They stand amid crowded boutiques, restaurants and theatres. This is, however, also a modern metropolis that never stops and knows how to be reborn from its ashes, like the great urban renewal project HafenCity – once in the outskirts, now a second centre for city dwellers with its newly opened l’Elbphilharmonie by Herzog & de Meuron. With AVDM and our city editor, many more fascinating places in the centre and the blooming new fashion quarters are still to be discovered.
