An apartment in Hamburg is like your own private piece of heaven. Hamburg offers everything you need: vibrance, history, a thriving social and cultural scene, beautiful architecture, great transport, and so much more. Visually, the city is stunning. It is a curious hybrid of the ultramodern (like the Elbphilharmonie concert hall) and ultra-classical, with buildings and streets hundreds of years old.

The entire city of Hamburg is built around the Alster Lake, and around the lake is where the best neighbourhoods are to be found. 

    • Altona
      • Altona is a vibrant, colourful part of the city which is known for being a bit hipster. The abundance of independent coffee shops and stores make it a treat during weekends, and its easy connection to other neighbourhoods makes it perfect for families and young adults who like to move around in their spare time. 
    • Eimsbüttel
      • A little out from the city centre, Eimsbüttel is close to the action without being subject to the chaos of the city! There’s an air of class to Eimsbüttel, but it also offers plenty of green space and playgrounds for young kids! Perfect for family accommodation in Hamburg, Germany!
    • Sternschanze
      • For anyone who’s lived in Berlin, Sternschanze is like it’s little brother. There is tonnes of edgy street art, vegan eateries, trendy bars, and a real hipster vibe. The area is incredibly popular in the summer but great fun all year round. 
    • Winterhude
      • Winterhude is an affluent and popular area among families and single professionals. Bordering on a range of canals and the Alster Lake, and also containing the wonderful Stadtpark - the largest park in Hamburg - it is a peaceful quarter, with enjoyable (but not rowdy) entertainment and nightlife. Many of the best business apartments in Hamburg will be found here. 
    • Hafencity
      • More interested in the supermodern city centre than the residential suburbs? Hafencity is a magnificent blend of the old (with the harbour area and canals) and the brand-new with towering offices sprouting up all over. The stunning Elbphilharmonie is here, as well as many of the new apartments in Hamburg, Germany.
    • St Pauli
      • This is the party and nightlife centre of the city. Host to the famous Reeperbahn, this is the perfect area for partygoers, boutique shoppers, theatre, and having a great time! It also borders the harbour, a stunning and popular destination for tourists and locals alike.


Sightseeing and landmarks in Hamburg

Hamburg’s enormous port - the self-acclaimed “Gateway to the World” - is home to many of the city’s most popular attractions, but none more than Elphi: Hamburg’s recently-completed concert hall is a stunningly modern creation of red brick and glass. 

There’s St Nikolai church, with its 76-metre viewing platform overlooking Hamburg’s centre, Kunsthalle Hamburg for the art lovers, the two artificial lakes Inner and Outer Alster, even the legendary Fischmarkt - there is a virtually unlimited amount of incredible sights around Hamburg. Apartments for rent in Hamburg, Germany, are never far from the action!


Eating, Drinking, and Leisure

St Pauli and Sternschanze are both lively areas which are great for a few drinks! If you prefer the quiet, Ottensen and Winterhude are charming neighborhoods. Winterhude also boasts a delicious range of classy restaurants, but Sternschanze is the kingpin here: its streets are lined with stalls, cafes, restaurants, and holes-in-the-wall. Food lovers flock here every weekend for cuisine of every kind! 

For those who like to party a little more, Hamburg apartments in Reeperbahn puts you in one of the most renowned nightlife streets in Europe!
