Things you always wanted to know...

Hamburg has the most bridges of any city in the world.
When looking at cities with many bridges, most think of the charming islands of Venice or the beautiful canals of Amsterdam. But, in fact, Hamburg has more bridges than any other city in the world.

The Lake Alster swans have a father.
The beautiful Lake Alster in the heart of Hamburg is known for its game of over 100 swans. These birds are looked after by the Schwanenvater – literally, “the swan father.”

 

Reeperbahn - 1 km long - clubs, bars, ...
The Beatles-Platz is directly located on the party street of Hamburg. Here, life-sized figures of The Beatles members are displayed. It was named in honor of the band who started their career and became famous in the clubs around the Reeperbahn.

Johanna's recommendation for a trip outside the city center:

 

 

Övelgönne - just a short boat trip away from the city center. Beautiful walk  by the river Elbe at the so called "Elbstrand", where you get a fantastic view over the harbor. Beach feeling guaranteed. Typical and regional food: Enjoy your fish roll in a  relaxed atmosphere.
