One of the richest European cities, Hamburg is an historic city, with a beautiful centre of neo-Gothic red brick buildings, half-timbered houses and medieval relics. It is also a trendy city, home to many young professionals in banks and insurance companies. On the Hamburg skyline, skyscrapers and façades of steel and glass counterbalance the spires of old churches. Situated on the banks of the river Elbe, Hamburg is dominated by water, its 2,428 bridges, at least 1000 of which span water surpasses even Venice. The Alster Lake in the heart of the city, dotted with the white of sailboats and flanked by green parks, is its showpiece. The harbour, where ships and loading cranes throw up a geometrical pattern against the skyline, and the network of narrow canals dissecting the city define its nautical character. Hamburg is also a city of parks. Over 6000 acres of green spaces provide oases of calm and natural beauty amidst the throb of city life. It is a media city, home to a large number of the country's principal newspapers and magazines, press agencies and public relations firms. It is a city of museums, with at least 45 museums and over 100 galleries. And it is a city with style.
