Living in Hamburg: discover your new city!

Looking to rent a Placed apartment in Hamburg? The metropolis centred around the Elbe and Alster rivers has a lot to offer! Famous and infamous in equal measure is, of course, the Reeperbahn. Situated in the south-east of the city, the boulevard is almost one kilometre long and is best seen after nightfall. That’s when Hamburg’s neon-lit party world really comes to life. If the water is more your thing, there’s plenty to discover at the Elbe beach, where the section between Övelgönne and Hindenburgpark is a party hotspot, especially in summer. On warmer days, there’s plenty going on here until late in the night. A little further along the Elbe towards the centre of Hamburg is the historic fish auction hall in the east of Altona. The fish market is held here every Sunday from 5 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. – snack on a fish sandwich or grab some specialties to take with you, you can’t get any fresher!

What would Hamburg be without the Alster and Elbe rivers?

Renting an apartment in Hamburg also means: a whole lot of water! Continue along the Elbe from the fish market and you’ll come across the St. Pauli Piers, where you can take in the hustle and bustle of Hamburg’s harbour. The piers were built over 100 years ago and are made from floating pontoons. This allows them to counterbalance the tidal range, which is still felt in Hamburg despite being 100 kilometres away from the North Sea. The Old Elbe Tunnel takes you underground and through to the other side of the river. The tunnel is accessed via a lift that takes you 24 metres below ground. Dock and shipyard workers once used the tunnel to get to work. The Elbphilharmonie, fondly referred to as “Elphi”, is located on the outskirts of the nearby historic Speicherstadt, which was made a world heritage site in 2015. The concert hall is surrounded by water on three sides, making it all the more impressive and a perfect spot for photos. World-class artists have held concerts there since 2017. Anyone wishing to take a look around Elphi can book a tour. St. Michael’s Church, or simply “Michel”, is another landmark just a short distance away. And not far from here is a real highlight for engineering enthusiasts: the International Maritime Museum, which is entirely dedicated to shipping and ship building.

Holiday vibes in Hamburg: Planten un Blomen

The impressive parks that make up Planten un Blomen encompass the former Old Botanical Garden, the historical ramparts and the grounds of the 1973 International Horticulture Show. The entire area covers around 47 hectares. The most popular sections include the rose garden with its 300 different rose species as well as the tropical greenhouses and the Japanese Garden. From here, the small Inner Alster Lake is just a stone’s throw away. It sits adjacent to the shops, office buildings and luxury hotels that line the Jungfernstieg, Hamburg’s main boulevard. The Outer Alster Lake is somewhat larger, with one circuit covering a distance of almost eight kilometres. Anyone looking to explore the lake can jump aboard the Alster steamboat or rent a pedal boat. Sailing is also allowed. As you can see, no matter where you go, the Hanseatic city has plenty to see and do! And Placed makes renting an apartment in Hamburg easy.
