Altstadt & Neustadt

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Welcome to Altstadt & Neustadt

The Old Town and New Town are true jewels of Hamburg. The historic centre of the old town is characterised by many traditional buildings such as the Hamburg Town Hall and the Chamber of Commerce, as well as alleys and bridges that extend as far as HafenCity. In the Neustadt between Laeiszhalle and Jungfernstieg you will find elegant promenades with famous fashion designers and gallery owners - with a view of the Alster.

Hamburg Michel St. Michaelis Church

Hamburg has many large churches - but only one "Michel": On its platform 106 metres high, there is a fabulous (and breezy) view of Hamburg, the port and the surrounding countryside - one that should not be missed!

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Altona & Ottensen

For strolling, having a coffee, taking a walk or having some delicious food – situated directly at the Elbe and traversed by parks, Altona & Ottensen are considered to be charming and diverse districts with character. Brick walls create a rather rough atmosphere in Altona, while it is lively and colourful in Ottensen.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Eimsbüttel & Eppendorf

Here, one can find magnificent old building façades, local and exquisite restaurants as well as fancy boutiques and owner-operated shops. While Eppendorf is rather fancy, one can feel the hanseatic serenity in Eimsbüttel. Both districts offer much green and water and are hence with good reason very popular neighbourhoods in Hamburg.
