It’s hard to believe that Hamburg, Germany, has been almost completely rebuilt since WWII as it still retains that charming old-European city feel. You can easily play all day and party all night in this hub of entertainment and attractions – you name it, you can find or do it in Hamburg. Situated on the river Elbe, Hamburg is one of the largest ports in the world and the port is celebrated with a festival featuring some of the world’s largest cruise ships, steam boats, and warships every May. The Hamburger Dom is another great festival which features a huge funfair and regular fireworks displays; it’s held three times a year so try and book your hostel to coincide with it. And then there’s the famous Christmas Markets – the best one’s held in the city centre, outside the impressive town hall – don’t miss the Christmas parades held every Saturday during Advent.
