Hamburg is a sea port city. Because of this it was devastated in the war. It was rebuilt well, but does not have that European charm or flair that travelers like. The first time I was here I didn't think much of it. All I saw was a new city that was pretty dirty. Well, this time around, I'll give this party town more credit. Hamburgers know how to party! That's for sure. From the infamous Reeperbahn where you can pick up a prostitute and browse through sex shops, to the very "Brooklyn" Sternchanze neighborhood. I was able enjoy myself by taking it in as a local, instead of seeking out the "sites" (of which there are few). Go on a weekend for guaranteed good times!
There was an MTV concert going on when I was there the first night. The streets were even more packed than this.
Fisch Markt early Sunday Morning... and the party still goes on...
Feldstrasse Neighborhood was closer to the TV tower.
Some street markets, but Sternchanze
takes the cake for coolest neighborhood
