Hamburg City Hall

Erected in 1897, this impressive Neo-Renaissance town hall is a symbol of Hamburg's wealth and autonomy. The striking turquoise roofs of the imposing edifice have become a defining landmark of Hamburg's skyline. Its magnificent north facade is dominated by a huge tower decorated with bronze statues of past German Emperors. The interior contains some 650 different rooms, of which the Bürgersaal, Kaisersaal and Turmsaal are the most opulent. The fantastic Große Festsaal, with its bronze and marble decor, is still used for celebrations and below the ground, 4,000 oak columns support the building. Hamburg Rathaus continues to operate in an official governmental capacity even today, incorporating the meeting rooms and office of the senate and the mayor respectively.

St. Michael's Church

One of Hamburg's major landmarks, the Lutheran church of Saint Michael was originally built in the early 17th Century. It still stands today, though it has seen many reincarnations since the original church was built. The building was destroyed by lightning in 1661, which led to its baroque-inspired reconstruction in 1786. In 1906 the burnt down church was rebuilt and then was heavily damaged in both World War I and II. Constructed in the honor of Archangel Michael, the entrance of the church is ornamented with a spectacular statue depicting Archangel Michael's victory over the Devil. Despite its tumultuous history, the church's tower continues to offer incredible views of the city and still plays host to a 300-year-old tradition, whereby a trumpet player plays a hymn facing north, then south, then east and west.

Speicherstadt

Built at the end of the 19th century, the Speicherstadt, literally the "City of Warehouses, is the world's largest warehouse complex. The warehouses, many of which are up to eight stories high, are all made of brick while the copper roofs and small towers serve as decorative features. Interestingly enough, the historic Speicherstadt still serves its original purpose - everything from spices to carpets are stored in the huge warehouses erected by local merchants over a century ago. Some of the rooms of the warehouses have even been converted into museums for visitors who are curious about the warehouse district and its history.

St. Nicholas' Church

While the Gothic St. Nicholas' Church, Hamburg or St.-Nikolai-Kirche, may stand in ruins, its beauty still shines through the black soot facade. St. Nicholas has been the patron saint of these grounds since 1189, though the church itself has gone through many reincarnations over the centuries. The tower that stands today was constructed in 1874 and won the title of the tallest building in the world. While it has been surpassed by many buildings around the world since then, it is still one of Hamburg's tallest structures. During World War II, the tower's height ultimately led to the church's destruction. Today, visitors to the church ruins can take an elevator to the top of the tower and wander through a memorial to those who lost their lives in World War II.

Treppenviertel

Treppenviertel is a quaint, charming riverside neighborhood in Hamburg. The reason for its popularity is the uneven elevation, the whole area can be traversed by a series of stairs, with rustic, thatched houses on both end. The area ends at the river Elbe, where people engage in leisurely activities. Offering panoramic views of the region, it is said that there a total of 5000 steps in Treppenviertel, making it an unmissable attraction.

Neuengamme Concentration Camp Memorial

The former concentration camp at Neuengamme is both a museum and memorial, which serves as a reminder to future generations. You can learn about the fate of more than 100,000 people who were imprisoned here between 1938 and 1945. Communists, socialists, homosexuals, Jews, Roma, Sinti and criminals were used as forced labor to produce bricks for the nearby brickworks. In 1940, Neuengamme became an actual concentration camp and from 1942 it was used as an armament factory; 55,000 people died here. In addition to a visit to the museum, you can walk around the grounds alone, or go on a guided tour.
