In a prosperous corner with 1,200 years of history and deep-rooted marine tradition, criss-crossed by beautiful canals, Hamburg reveals itself as a city different from any other. In fact, the 2,300 bridges that intersect the city of Hamburg equal more than all the bridges of Amsterdam and Venice put together; these can be enjoyed from Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Hamburg. Its port, founded in 1189, is the second busiest in Europe and a great showcase of unique products, people and ways of life, capable of surprising even the most experienced visitors.
Hamburg’s architectural heritage impresses at first sight, from the 112 m Neo-Gothic St. Michael’s Church tower to the Krameramtswohnungen or the traditional 17th century merchant houses. Stroll through streets such as Reeperbahn, where the night life is just as buzzing now as it was in the 1960s when the Beatle’s international career was launched.
Hamburg is a bustling and modern city, with 40 theatres, 60 museums and 100 music venues which, like the third musical metropolis, are up there with those of New York and London. As well as being one of the country’s most powerful financial centres, it is also one of the few places in Germany where fish and seafood reign supreme, and can be savoured in the restaurant at Barceló Hotels & Resorts in Hamburg as well as at the city’s market.
For those who enjoy the outdoors, Hamburg is an ideal place to stroll along bridges and canals. An equally charming activity is a boat trip around the port, following the trail that led travellers to the New World centuries ago. A destination – and hotels – tailored for those who want to enjoy the essence of the journey.
