Monocle Travel Guide: Hamburg
If Berlin is Germany’s clubbing capital then Hamburg is the dinner party that’s as raucous as it is refined – and the guests are a varied bunch too. Stroll around this port city and you’ll brush shoulders with local fishermen on the banks of the River Elbe, world- renowned gallerists hosting cutting-edge exhibitions, and independent retailers flaunting wares that are either “Made in Hamburg” or exotic. Pull up a chair and meet the lot of them.
In 2007, Monocle was launched as a magazine briefing on global affairs, business, culture, design and much more. The Monocle Travel Guide Series reveals the editors' favourite spots in each city, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best streets for independent retail.
