Hamburg is not easy to describe in a few words. There are, for example, the Elbe, the harbor, the Speicherstadt, numerous bridges, the Elbphilharmonie and over a hundred city districts, all of which exude a unique charm. Hamburg is one thing above all: diverse. Hamburg-Mitte in particular impresses with almost endless possibilities in terms of leisure activities, living and working.
If you visit the old town, you will first and foremost remember the magnificent town hall directly on the Binnenalster, which resembles a castle. A few minutes’ walk away you will reach the Kontorhausviertel with its impressive brick office buildings. You can find even more sights in the New Town. Whether the Michel, the Hamburg State Opera or the Jungfernstieg: in this lively district you will experience pure culture.
Probably everyone knows it: the Reeperbahn. However, the amusement mile with its numerous neon signs next to discos, clubs and pubs is not the only thing St. Pauli is known for. The harbor with the Landungsbrücken, also known as Hamburg’s water station, inspires young and old with its incomparable flair. Further north is the 279.2-meter TV tower, which is Hamburg’s tallest building and serves as a popular landmark. Real estate in St. Pauli comes in all varieties – from lofts and modern apartments to houses with neighborhood character and apartments in Art Nouveau style.
Modern architecture, urban city life and a wide range of cultural and leisure activities: Hafencity is Europe’s largest inner-city urban development project and is convincing all along the line. In particular, the Elbphilharmonie with its glass wave architecture reflects what the entire Hafencity stands for: a combination of maritime tradition and spectacular innovation. Right next to the new district is the Speicherstadt, which, together with the Kontorhaus district and the Chilehaus in Hamburg, has been named Germany’s 40th UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In the west of Hamburg is Eimsbüttel, a part of Hamburg-Mitte that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of the big city. In Eimsbüttel you live surrounded by idyllic green spaces in imposing Gründerzeit villas and red brick houses. Here you can relax in Wehbers Park, Unnapark, Lindenpark, Eimsbütteler Park or on the Kaiser-Friedrich-Ufer – the ideal relaxation from everyday life.
