The Downtown rebuild in about 1843 after a big fire wiped out 1/3 of the city and Hamburg was wealthy enough to rebuild it in style! Still today you can see the Alsterarkaden with expensive stores from the city hall, which you can recognize by the big arcs. At its end you will reach the Jungfernstieg, which is the oldest paved road in Hamburg and boards directly on the Alster, the big inner lake of the city, on which you will find tour ships as well.

Hamburg: Second largest city of Germany, situated in the north at the river Elbe, because of the seaport well known as a city of merchants. Because of the nearby sea, you will always have some fresh breeze while you are walking through the streets with nice private town-houses or while you are floating along aboard an “Alsterdampfer” on the river Alster.
