Stormarn belongs to the Hamburg metropolitan region consequently it combines some of the most varied aspects of a rich and full life. Thanks to the convenient transport systems there is practically no difference time wise to visit the "Gateway to the World" from a Hamburg outer suburb or from the Stormarn province. Hamburg provides a wide variety of varied recreational activities: Whether it is strolling through the fish market or the Reeperbahn, a round-trip cruise in the harbour, maybe visiting the Michel-church, opera, cinema, theatre, museums, or perhaps shopping in the Mönkebergstreet – you can be sure everything is within easy reach.
The fish market, with approximately 5 million visitors per year, is one of the most popular sight seeing attractions of Hamburg.
The Reeperbahn is another major Hamburg attraction. There you can find the famous Davidswache – and close by the St. Pauli Theatre, Schmidt Theater and Schmidts Tivoli.
One of the best ways to see the Hamburg is a cruise on a barge.
