Hamburg

Hamburg has achieved a rare feat – successfully reimagining its industrial harbour past into a sleek yet authentic destination, ripe for exploration. The streets of St Pauli and vast Speiccherstadt warehouse district are a perfect example of old meeting new, in a stylish and unique collision of contrasts. You can discover the infamous Reeperbahn red light district, after taking in the elegance of the new Elbphilharmonie concert hall, an architectural icon atop the Elbe river, or take your pick from the excellent selection of bars and restaurants that line the harbour.

Hamburg Town Hall continues the eye-catching design theme, this time an homage to classical German grandeur – vast sandstone pillars sit alongside sweeping marble staircases, topped with stunning ceiling frescoes, making this a must-see on your visit. From here head to St Michaelis Church – at over 106metres high, it offers stunning panoramic views across the city, while the much photographed copper Archangel Michael sculpture watches over visitors.
