Hamburgers are one of the most popular foods in the world.

Schanzenviertrel is the quirkiest and most hip part of the city so be sure to check it out when you visit Hamburg. This part of town is filled with graffiti making it look like a giant painting. Numerous bars, eateries, and small stores can be found all around and there is someone playing music at every corner. It is the best place to look for souvenirs and taste a wide variety of food.
If you are looking to stay up all night and party then the neighborhood of St. Pauli will be perfect for you. This portion of the west side of Hamburg is filled with 24-hour establishments. It is like a part of the city that never sleeps. If you don’t like low-key bars full of young people, St. Pauli is also where the Reeperbahn, Hamburg’s Red Light District, is located. Here in Reeperbahn you can find nihtclubs, beerhouses, and strip clubs.
The Warehouse district is the best part of the city to have your pictures taken. The long, old brick warehouses will serve as amazing backgrounds for your photos.
