Known for its red light district, Hamburg is Germany's answer to Amsterdam. True, this city boasts an incredibly vibrant nightlife that includes innumerable bars, clubs and, yes, strip joints but there's a lot more to Hamburg than what goes on down on the Reeperbahn every night. This is a city with a diverse collection of neighbourhoods including boho Schanzenviertel and Altstadt, which is home to some of Hamburg's top sights. There are plenty of cultural attractions to be enjoyed in this city too, and Hamburg also boasts lots of natural beauty, from parks like Planten un Blomen and the Stadtpark to the city's impressive lakes. One of the most popular destinations in Germany, Hamburg really does have something for everyone.
