Hamburg is currently the fastest growing German city in terms of visitor numbers, leaving behind notable contenders such as Berlin and Munich. Everyday Hamburg life revolves largely around its waterways: built on the river Elbe, the city also has the picturesque Alster lake and a network of inner-city canals. It is telling that the Hamburg daily travel pass covers water transport as well as road and rail transport. It is also a green city, with almost 20% of its acreage taken up with parks and other green spaces. Its best-known tourist site may be the infamous Reeperbahn, but Hamburg has much, much more to offer. Above all, it is a city of contrasting neighbourhoods, ranging from the smart Neustadt shopping area to the bohemian St Pauli district and from the 19th century Speicherstadt warehouse district to the future shape of Hamburg in the form of the HafenCity.
Restaurant Whispers
Eisenstein  Website Trip Advisor Page A trendy restaurant housed in an old 19th century factory which made ship propellors. Serves Italian and some international dishes and is regarded as the place in Hamburg for pizza. The food, while not the cheapest, is well above average. It is a busy restaurant with a bustling atmosphere, but the friendly waiting staff do not rush you and the restaurant’s rustic, bare-brick look encourages you to linger and enjoy the ambience. ( Friedensallee 9, 22765 Hamburg ) Il Buco  Trip Advisor Page A small (but with some outside tables), family-run Italian restaurant near Hansaplatz in the Georg area of central Hamburg. There is no menu - the waiter/waitress will come to your table and describe the menu for you. The food is simply wonderful and the staff are perfectly friendly and charming. You will have a most relaxing and enjoyable time here. Strongly recommended. ( Zimmerpforte 5, 20099 Hamburg ) Opitz  Website Trip Advisor Page A delightful traditional German restaurant in the north-east of the city centre, near the Aussenalster lake. Entering the pristine yet atmospheric restaurant is like stepping into the past - in good way. The waiting staff are jovial and very keen to ensure that you are enjoying yourself. The food is first class and there is plenty of it. Pricewise, while not cheap it will certainly not break the bank. Well worth a try. ( Mundsburger Damm 17, 22087 Hamburg )
Hotel Whispers
Europaischer Hof  Website Trip Advisor Page The Europaischer Hof is a fine hotel located just opposite the main Hamburg railway station. It is in no way expensive considering what is on offer: spacious, comfortable rooms, well-appointed public areas and a lavish breakfast to set you up for the day. There are two restaurants in the hotel - the Hamburger Restaurant (naturally!) and Paulaner’s, which is a theme pub/restaurant. The hotel staff are universally courteous and helpful; nothing is too much trouble for them. Guests qualify for a free three-day city travel pass and have the use of the hotel’s spa and health club facilities, which include a sauna, jacuzzi, indoor pool and a fitness suite.
