Local legend Lotto King Karl sings in his catchy soccer hymn “Hamburg, my pearl, you beautiful city…” – and you don’t have to be a fan of the local club HSV to feel what he means. The quality of life in the Hanseatic city is simply incomparable, because it never gets boring here.
Green and blue
There is a lot to discover in Hamburg and the water and nature are never far away. Whether on the Alster lake, in the city park, on the Elbe river, along the Alster canals, in the botanical garden “Planten Un Blomen” or in one of the numerous district parks – everyone will find their favorite spot in the greenery, the perfect jogging route or a water sports spot. After all, the city consists of 14% green space and has over 2,300 bridges – more than Venice!
Your Style – Your Neighborhood
From Art Nouveau neighborhoods like Eppendorf and Eimsbüttel to magnificent mansions in Blankenese and Harvestehude, Nordic red brick buildings in Barmbek and Eilbek to the clean and modern facades of HafenCity – Hamburg’s neighborhoods couldn’t be more different. So there’s something for everyone, and exploring away from your own neighborhood is always worth it.
Party? We can do that!
What would study time be without partying all night? Hamburg is famous for the Reeperbahn on St. Pauli. But the city has a lot more party options and a diverse gastronomic scene to offer. For example, in the Schanzenviertel, in the Lange Reihe or in the Grindelviertel. But sometimes the best party simply takes place in the kitchen of a fellow student.
Shopping tours for every taste
A Saturday stroll through the city also takes you past the numerous shop windows. Luxury on Neuer Wall, high street on Mönckebergstraße or individual boutiques in the city districts. Here, every style and every wallet will find what they are looking for.
