The old St. Pauli Piers, built in the early 20th century, are also the starting point for cruises on the Elbe and from where you can venture out into Hamburg from one of its historic districts, now full of trendy clubs. Hamburg is a vital and very beautiful university campus. Its streets and canals are a riot of eateries and bars that know their stuff when it comes to food. The city, the second most important in Germany, developed around the port of Hamburg and its industrial activities, crossed by canals and dotted with parks. Visit the Speicherstadt warehouse city, where you can enjoy the specialties of the local cuisine without straying too far from the port. The bistros and restaurants on the quayside serve formidable burgers and steaks of all kinds. Visit the houseboats of the Eilbek Canal and the “Das Feuerschiff LV 13”, a bar restaurant aboard a fire engine.
Not to miss during your trip to Hamburg:
• Warehouse District of Hamburg
