Hamburg is Germany's main manufacturing center, where the Airbus planes are assembled, as well as the country's fashion and media capital. A tributary of Elbe River runs through it, before meeting the North Sea 65 miles away. Thanks to the river and the channels stemming from it, Hamburg has even more bridges than Venice! HafenCity, Europe's largest urban development project is also taking place in the city's former customs-free port area. The latest addition to the collection of ultra-modern buildings here is the brandnew Elbphilarmonie, the city's main concert hall and event space that also includes a chic hotel. Do not forget to pay a visit to the western suburb of Blankenese, a former fishing village that is now the city's wealthiest neighborhood. The former red-light and entertainment district of St. Pauli and the street of Reeperbahn −made famous by the Beatles who lived and played here in the 60s− also worths a visit.
