• Enjoy the mercantile history of the beautiful city of Hamburg

    2010-03-16

    Germany's second largest city, Hamburg is an amazingly versatile city with a fascinating past and much to see and do. The city itself is located on the Elbe River, giving the town a rich mercantile history that has helped establish the city as not only one of the most influential ports in the world, but also as a key trade city for international consumers.

    One of the first stops when visiting the city should be harbor area at the southern end of the Alte Deichstraße. The area boasts a row of historic warehouses dating back to around 1900 and provides an excellent backdrop for photos. The region also boasts touristy sites like the Hamburg Dungeon and the Miniatur Wunderland - the world's largest model railway layout.

    The harbor area also hosts a Sunday fish market - an open-air fresh market that gives travelers a chance to pick up fresh seafood and listen to live bands performing jazz, skiffle, country and Western music.

    Travelers interested in shopping might also enjoy a trip to the Mönckebergstraße area just west of the central railway station, where rows of local and designer shops provide a fun pathway to the majestic town hall and several historic churches.
