Endorsed by more than 1,200 years of history, Germany’s second most populated city currently continues to be the prosperous maritime enclave which has given it its fame for centuries. Hamburg, the Free Imperial City of the Roman Empire, it is the country’s maritime gateway, open to the sea of Frisia through Lake Alster and the river Elba. One of the marvels of the hotels in Hamburg is to admire the bridges and canals that define the urban landscape and appreciate the perfect harmony of this port setting.
Hamburg its own lifestyle. This is what often occurs with those cities whose strong personality has been maintained since its origins. Accustomed to being a key entry and exit point for travelers and goods, the city has successfully taken advantage of this contact with the outside world to be enriched not only from the economic point of view but also in the cultural layout.
Some of Hamburg’s main points of interest include: numerous theaters and auditoriumsuch as the Theater im Hafen or the State Opera House. Not surprisingly, the city is considered the third musical metropolis in the world, along with New York and London, making it possible to take advantage of a holiday in Hamburg to attend one of the many international festivals that take place throughout the year.
Those who enjoy more than the outdoor activities have a great option for enjoying a stroll and discovering the charms of the “City of Water”. Neither the bridges of Amsterdam and Venice would exceed the more than 2,300 bridges that the city has to offer and are essential to cross the city’s canals. It is precisely the bridges that give access to some of the most emblematic areas of Hamburg, such as Krameramtswohnungen (the idyllic area where the traditional houses from 17th century merchants are preserved), the Neo-Gothic church of San Nicolás or the City Hall, with its popular tower measuring 112 meters high.
A visit to the city can also take place by boat taking some of the lines that set out from the moorists of Biennenalster and which, apart from the tour, usually offer tasting sessions of typical dishes such as Bohnen und Speck (pancetta, beans and operas) or the Rote Grütze (a dessert of cherries and swim cream).
Hamburg is The perfect destination for those seeking exclusivity. An eclectic city full of contrasts that, from the lake-side mansions to the alternative district of St. Pauli, seduces its visitors with its original leisure, gastronomy, shopping and culture options.
The stay in a designer accommodation at the Barceló Hamburg hotel visitors will never miss out on the authentic insight into the city founded by Carlomagic. This spontaneous blend of past and future is also evident in the architecture of Hamburg, ranging from the most modern and luxurious hotels to the charm of its popular buildings or the beauty of its regal mansions. Spending a few days immersed in these contrasts with the Barceló Hotel Group is the best way of understanding the transformation that the city has yet to experience and form part of this interesting change with all types of luxury.
