Hamburg – seaside metropolis
Although it is close to a hundred kilometers from the sea, Hamburg took over the role of the main European port. He became a German window on the world, the gateway to the cultural and moral diversity.
Silhouettes of giant ships, cranes, floating effortlessly containers the size of the house, damp smell of the water. The constant movement of the flag from the remotest corners of the world, an endless river of goods. Port of Hamburg acts as a magnet, hypnotizing and preaching to observe almost without end.
Hamburg, after Rotterdam, is the second largest port in Europe. For centuries nailed here adventurous sailors, having free time and a penny in his pocket. In this way the district St. The country’s Pauli and the Reeperbahn became famous. This place associated for years with the “red light district”. Although today the famous sinful Herbertstrasse admission only men (inform the board at the beginning of the street), the St. Paula is a place for everyone. This is where paths lead Hamburg partygoers, where waiting for a small, cozy bars and clubs didżejskimi events and concerts.
With the district St. Pauli is associated not only crazy nightlife, but also the Beatles and the cult and the original football club FC St. Pauli. The St. Pauli is the Beatles museum, the square and the monument. In the museum Beatlemania, on the 1300 meters gathered memorabilia of the legendary group, from their beginnings in Hamburg until dissolution. On the square of their name You can find 5 monuments.
If you are not afraid to get up early, I suggest You a trip to the Hamburg fish market, working on Sunday from 5 am to 9.30 am on the waterfront of St. Pauli Fischmarkt. At dawn the sidewalk is filled with hundreds of crates of fish and seafood exposed for auction. Apart from the commercial hustle and bustle here you drink freshly brewed cup of coffee or a beer at the cheerful music. Coming on a Sunday fish market is regarded by the locals not only as an opportunity to go shopping but this is primarily an opportunity to free chats and meetings. At the Hamburg market, you can also try the local specialty – hot fish fed on a bun. You can try it in other places but only here it tastes so special.
The city center is a remarkable town hall square with the Town Hall, where the fair is held. Town Hall is a necessary point on the route sightseeing, due to its size, architecture and taste with which it was designed. Sights are also ancient churches scattered throughout the city center, including the tallest building in town – the church of St. Nicholas.
Hamburg is another place worth a visit which can not be from just a few words to say. Everyone likes something different – one selects the port and someone else “Miniatur Wunderland”, the Museum of Spices, Automobile Museum “Prototype” or Alster Lake.
