Why a stay in Hamburg?

Hamburg is one of the most beautiful cities in Germany and in North Europe. Just a few hours away by train or bus from Berlin, Hamburg is the perfect destination for a weekend away from the capital. The Speicherstadt is Hamburg’s symbolic neighbourhood. The name, when translating it, simply means “city of the warehouses”, heritage from the late 1800 when the engineer Franzi Andreas Meyer was commissioned the construction of 17 red brickwork buildings, between seven and eight meters high, leaning on pillars of wood, like ancient stilts. This city inside the city was necessary to reach customs arrangements with what at the time was the German Empire, of which Hamburg constituted an independent reality. With the time the function of stock houses was lost, and the zone has become one of the most exclusive in the whole city, base not only of the new Elbphilarmonie but also of luxury residences and high-level commercial activities. Exactly in this frame are the two hotels of our contest: the AMERON Hamburg Hotel Speicherstadt and the PIERDREI Hotel HafenCity Hamburg.
