Hamburg Sightseeing Drive and St. Michael's Church
In need of retail therapy after your tour? Your guide can advise you where to go in search of that "must have" souvenir to take home. Be sure to have some local currency and a backpack for all your great buys. As in many cities, keep your wallet or purse secured and leave the bling behind. Flat shoes make walking on cobblestones much easier.

Welcome to Germany's "Gateway to the world" - its busiest port and largest, wealthiest city. It's truly an international city, which you'll discover as you travel through its distinctive neighborhoods, from the scenic harborside to the seedier red light district
The religious core of Hamburg is defined by its myriad churches, including St. Nicolas, which for a brief moment in the 19th century was the world's tallest building. St. Michael's was rebuilt twice, a testament to the city's devotion to the church's namesake patron saint.
On the other hand, there's the Reeperbahn, home to strip clubs and sex shops. But it's also been a hub of the city's music scene, one that's dispersed to other districts and chicer venues in places like the Speicherstadt (the Warehouse District) and the HafenCity, the modern new quarter along the harbor. Who knows, maybe the next great world band will come out of Hamburg, and you might hear them playing on one of the city's street corners.
The Beatles were born in Hamburg, and one died there
From 1960 to 1962, The Beatles (pre-Ringo) were based in Hamburg, performing in clubs and polishing their performance skills. It's where they made their first recording, which brought them to the attention of their uber manager, Brian Epstein. Stuart Sutcliffe, their original bassist, died in Hamburg after suffering a brain aneurysm that same year.
