What is Hamburg known for?


stage set

scripts were used for shooting, and even the stage set was an almost identical replica of the original American set, with only minor details changed, such as paintings and bric-a-brac in German style. RTL Television gave the same treatment to ''Married... with Children''. The two shows shared the first hour on Thursdays in the prime time slot from 8:15 pm to 10:15 pm. *In 2005, the Argentinian network Telefé also made its own local version called ''¿Quién es el Jefe?'', a direct translation of the original American title It starred Nicolás Vázquez, Gianella Neyra and Carmen Barbieri in the adult roles. The black and white national colours were already used by the Teutonic Knights and by the Hohenzollern dynasty. The Teutonic Order wore a white coat embroidered (embroidery) with a black cross with gold insert and black imperial eagle. The combination of the black and white colours with the white and red Hanseatic (Hanseatic League) colours of the free cities Bremen, Hamburg, and Lübeck (Free City of Lübeck) as well as of Brandenburg resulted in the black-white-red commercial flag of the North German Confederation, which became the flag of the German Empire in 1871.

outstanding character

there, though the "80s-Myth" is dead. You can go to the Punksbar "onkel otto" or eat at the "vokü". During the time of squatting, the well known football club "F.C. St.Pauli" obtained an antifascist-fan-crowd, in opposition to right wing hooligans. The team plays in the 2nd Bundesliga, and is one of the most popular teams in Germany. The outstanding character of the area, its inhabitants and also the football club can best be pointed out by the person of the ex-club-president who is also the director of two non sex-related theatres on the Reeperbahn and a well-known figure in Hamburg's and even Germany's gay community. If you get the chance for a ticket of a match, don't miss it. Sankt Pauli is one of the most populous district in Europe and a melting pot of all different people, thousands of stories and interesting histories. As of 18 July 2009, glass bottles are banned in the neighborhood from Friday night until Monday morning. Violating the ban can apparently result in a fine up to €5000. Alcohol is still permitted on the street and vendors can still sell drinks in cans or plastic bottles. Also in the Reeperbahn area are clubs where the Beatles played at various times from 1960-1962, including the Indra club and Star Club. At the corner of Reeperbahn and Grosse Freiheit, also called Beatles-platz, there is a sculpture honoring the Beatles. Right into the pedestrian street Grosse Freiheit, there are a lot of bars and clubs - a great place to go in the evening, although it`s very crowded and it may get a bit dangerous in the weekend. On weekdays, it is harmless here - a low-budget tip is, 99 Cent Bar" which offers really many drinks for 99 cent - so basically 1 euro. On the weekend, you will have to pay an entrance fee of 1 euro but it`s still the best place to go drinking on a budget. Next to St Pauli Theater, Schmidt's Tivoli and Schmidt's Theater, on the middle of Reeperbahn there is a square called Spielbudenplatz, that is sometimes host to markets, even in the night. If you see a market here, it`s a great idea to come and maybe eat a Currywurst - they are usually very good here. Schanzenviertel thumb right Schulterblatt Street in Schanzenviertel (File:Schulterblatt-kl.jpg) This neighbourhood is situated right in between Sankt Pauli, Eimsbüttel, and Altona. Get out Sternschanze station and walk down Schanzenstraße southward to reach the vivid centre of Schanzenviertel. Students and immigrants from all around the world and young creatives give this quarter a unique and urban flair. During the last few years, Schanzenviertel became very popular among even wealthy people. This led to rising living costs on the one hand and a variety of exquisite boutiques on the other. The Schulterblatt street with the Rote Flora building and its galore of bars and restaurants represents the centre of Schanzenviertel. The Rote Flora used to be the last squatted house in Hamburg, it's now left to the squatters for free by the owner. During the week, it is turned into a café, concerts of various styles or other events may also take place. On some days there is cheap (mostly vegan) food available. You can sometimes find fantastic parties for small prices on Friday and Saturday. Karolinenviertel The Karolinenviertel (also known as Karoviertel) can be compared to the Schanzenviertel. Locals claim that the Schanzenviertel became too popular (and thus crowded). The Karoviertel is far from quiet, but populated by locals. The main attractions are unique clothing stores some of which are second hand. To get there take the HVV to either Feldstraße (Heiligengeistfeld) or Messehallen subway station. Sankt Georg Situated northeast of Hauptbahnhof ''(Central Station)'' and city centre, Sankt Georg is the lively, trendy centre of Hamburg's gay scene. Rainbow flags flutter from the balconies in summer. The streets are crowded with people shopping, having a chat, drinking coffee, or going to one of the many art exhibitions around the Lange Reihe street. Altona and Ottensen thumb Zeisehallen in Ottensen (File:HH-Ottensen Zeise-Hallen 854-h.jpg) The former Danish village Ottensen, bordered by the River Elbe in the south and the Altona Station in the east, is not unlike Schanzenviertel, a very hip place to live. In the 1970s and 1980s, Ottensen was mainly populated by Turks, working-class people, and political activists. Nowadays, it is one of the most expensive neighbourhoods. Its situation and the architecture let many inhabitants even today speak of Ottensen as a village. The Fabrik, an alternative concert hall, is situated at Barnerstraße. Only a few blocks away lies Zeisehallen, a formerly occupied fabric hall, nowadays home to a movie theatre, a gallery, a restaurant, and a bookshop. Ottenser Hauptstraße and Bahrenfelder Straße, crossing at the Spritzenplatz, offers a huge variety of small shops and bistros. Blankenese Blankenese was a fishing village on the Elbe to the southwest of Hamburg. It lies in a valley between two of the only ridges in the area that runs straight down to the river. This upbeat suburb of Hamburg has more millionaires than any other German city. On pretty weekends, the place will be full of Hamburgers there to enjoy the tiny beaches, the winding streets, and the charming houses. Blankenese is among the most picturesque parts of Hamburg. To get there, take the S1 to Wedel or the S11 to Blankenese. The train station lies at the top of the valley, on Bahnhofstraße. Go straight across Bahnhofstraße and your will find the banks, an Italian gelateria and café, the market square (markets open early and close at 1PM on W, F, and Sa), the bakeries, grocery store, and post office. Eppendorf Eppendorf is the oldest "Dorf" (town) of Hamburg. In Eppendorf you will find a lot of well cared for 19th century houses making the quarter an eye-catcher. As a good alternative to the city center you will find in Eppendorf a nice collection of shops - a lot of them very individual. Focus is on clothes and shoes. Don't miss the "Isemarkt" - Europe's longest open market, every Tuesday and Friday 8am-2pm under the U3 subway driveway between Hoheluftbrücke and Eppendorfer Baum between the two lanes of the Isestraße.

energetic campaign

. Ordered to hold the city at all costs, Davout launched a characteristically energetic campaign against a similar numbered Army of the North made up of Prussian (Kingdom of Prussia) and allied troops under the command of Count von Wallmoden-Gimborn (Ludwig von Wallmoden-Gimborn‎), winning a number of minor engagements. Neither force was decidedly superior and the war ground to a halt and resulted in a rather stable front line between Lübeck and Lauenburg and further south along the Elbe river, even after the end of the cease-fire of the summer 1813. In October 1813 a French column's movement towards Dannenberg resulted in the only major engagement in the North of Germany, the Battle of the Göhrde. The defeated French troops retreated back to Hamburg. '''Anugama''' is a German (Germany) spiritual musician born in Cologne, Germany. He is most renowned for his healing music.

Hamburg

thumb Official logo of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg (File:Hamburg-logo.svg) thumb Hamburg, seen from the International Space Station (File:HamburgFromTheISS.jpg) '''Hamburg''' ( It is also the thirteenth largest German state (States of Germany). Its population is over 1.8 million people, and the Hamburg Metropolitan Region (including parts of the neighbouring Federal States (States of Germany) of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein) has more than 5 million inhabitants. The port of Hamburg, on the river Elbe, is the second largest port in Europe (after the Port of Rotterdam) and tenth largest worldwide.

The official name reflects its history (History of Hamburg) as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, as a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, a city-state, and one of the 16 states of Germany. Before the 1871 Unification of Germany, it was a fully sovereign state. Prior to the constitutional changes in 1919, the stringent civic republic was ruled by a class of hereditary grand burghers or Hanseaten (Hanseaten (class)).

Hamburg is a major transport hub and is one of the most affluent (Affluency) cities in Europe. It has become a media and industrial centre, with plants and facilities belonging to ''Airbus'', ''Blohm + Voss'' and ''Aurubis''. The radio and television broadcaster ''Norddeutscher Rundfunk'' and publishers such as ''Gruner + Jahr'' and ''Spiegel (Der Spiegel)-Verlag'' are pillars of the important media industry in Hamburg. Hamburg has been an important financial centre for centuries, and is the seat of the world's second oldest bank (List of oldest banks in continuous operation), Berenberg Bank. There are more than 120,000 enterprises.

The city is a notable tourist destination for both domestic and overseas visitors; it ranked 17th (Mercer Quality of Living Survey) in the world for livability in 2012.
