Another impressive building is the town hall with its richly decorated facade, located at the market square. Around here traffic free zones with lots of shopping arcades and streets make Hamburg a shoppers’ paradise.
Most famous are Hanseviertel Arcade, Jungfernstieg, Mönckeberg street and Neuer Wall street with the luxury arcades.

Tourists love the city for its cultural scene, made of world-class museums and a variety of musicals. But nevertheless, one of the biggest attractions of Hamburg is the famous red-light district Reeperbahn in Sankt Pauli.
Even those not interested in strip shows usually head for a trip to the Reeperbahn, just to see what it’s all about. The so called ‘Kiez’ is a collection of bars, sex clubs, variety acts, restaurants and pubs awaking every night, but don’t worry, it is also an usual and touristic place where people just go for dinner, enjoying theater and musicals.
