With more than 1.7 million inhabitants, the free Hanseatic city of Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany. During a city tour you will see the town hall, a magnificent sandstone building in neo-renaissance style and the St. Michaelis church, called Michel in the folk mummy, the landmark of Hamburg and most important baroque church building in northern Germany. The six, seven or even eight floors of the Speicherstadt tower like Gothic cathedrals. Until recently, Speicherstadt was the largest connected warehouse complex in the world: 373,000 square metres of warehouse space and 30,000 square metres of office space. Besides millions in coffee, tea, cocoa, tobacco, spices, rum, carpets and much more, an exquisite residential area has developed here. Apartments in converted warehouses and modern new buildings give the Speicherstadt an interesting touch. Passing historic houses in the new town, you will reach the Alster, where you can enjoy the view of Hamburg from the beautiful viewpoint.
