The North Sea port of Hamburg is a city of contrasts. The neon-lit, red light district of Reeperbahn at night is a remnant of a thriving port city and explains where the famous St Pauli Girl beer derives its name from. The Alstersee, a lake in the city centre, shows the elegant side of the city, boasting some of the finest parks and historical buildings in Germany. Nicknamed the 'Venice of the North', Hamburg can be explored by foot along the many canals.

Culture is an important aspect of Hamburg and the Kunsthalle is the leading art museum in northern Germany. The museum boasts a fantastic collection by German painters, and houses religious artefacts and modern works of art. Don't miss the stunning altarpiece painted for the St Peri Church in 1379 and a centrepiece of the museum's collection. The modern art collection is also impressive, with a whole wing dedicated to contemporary art; pieces in the collection include art by such greats as Warhol, Klee and Kandinsky.

For some history, visit the Museum für Hamburgische Geschichte (Museum of Hamburg History), which showcases Hamburg's turbulent history from the 8th century to the present day. Many scale models illustrate the changes the city has undergone,from a merchant port to the raids during World War II.

Hamburg lays claim tobeing the greenest city in Europe: nearly 50 per cent of its area is made up of water, woodlands and farmland, and the city has 1,400 parks and gardens. The Carl Hagenbeck's Tierpark is the main zoo in Hamburg and is a great visit for those with children.

The Alsterpark is a favourite among locals. Located on the northwest banks of the Alstersee, the park covers175 acres and boasts wonderful gardens, as well as a panoramic view of the Hamburg skyline. To see wildlife, visit the Hirschpark (deer park), which has a game enclosure. The Stadtpark in the north of the city has 32 kms of walking trails and many recreational facilities. For garden enthusiasts, the Planten und Blomen, boasting the largest Japanese garden in Europe, is a must.

For some shopping, don't miss the two oldest and most prestigious shopping streets: Grosse Bleichen and Neuer Wall. A less expensive range of shops can be found if you stroll along the Spitalstrasse and Mönckebergstrasse.
