|Travel and City Guides in Hamburg|
Hamburg lies in the North of Germany and is the second biggest city after Berlin. It spreads a cosmopolitan feeling also thanks to his background in Hanseatic trading. Still today Hamburg harbour plays a dominant role in the city’s economic situation, although over the recent years Hamburg has developed into a major media centre where many leading German and international publishing houses have their head offices. Culturally Hamburg has a lot to offer but the cultural taste differs quite from the South German customs. People are in general very modest, open-minded and helpful. The city is very compact and it is easy to get around also thanks to the well constructed transport system. Nevertheless, Hamburg is not a traditional touristy city with many sights. There are only a few landmarks and only the red-light district of St. Pauli has a so-called iconic status as it is known across the borders of Germany. Although nightlife has developed immensely in this region, the old reputation of its wicked existence still sticks to the area. During the weekend the streets around the Reeperbahn are filled with life and activity. But as one of the city’s characteristics is the water and the harbour it is recommendable to make a boat trip and explore the parkland fridges.
