The mercantile background of the city is reflected in its architecture with only one palace being built which is used as the town hall.

When you reach the city there are many things to see and do, for instance the city center is jam packed with attractions. The area located at the west of the city’s central railway station is a very active shopping area, it is called Monckebergstraße and you can find the churches of St. Jacobi and St. Petri on it.
The Hamburg city hall or Rathaus is an impressive building, built in 1897 in a neo-Renaissance style out of sandstone. One of its characteristic features is a 112 meter tower as well as some magnificent halls used by the German representatives.
One interesting building to visit while on your trip to Hamburg is St. Nikolai church. While all the city’s five churches were damaged during World War II bombardment this was the only one that was not re-built in exchange its ruins were turned into a memorial against war.
Since the harbor is so important, the harbor area has several locations deemed worthy to be visited.
