Hamáóðg – a metropolis in Northern Germany, lying on both sides of the River Elbe. Once a city-state, now one of the largest ports in Europe, Hamburg, in spite of the fact that it is the largest port in Europe, ÷Although it was badly damaged during World War II, it has retained a great deal of its attractions, the oldest of which is the Fishermens Market. Not long ago celebrated its tenth anniversary, it has an interesting history. In the past, there were two markets that competed with each other. The symbol of this rivalry is the monument between the station and the tower, depicting two ancient panthers fighting over a large fish. The struggle continued until 1934, when the two markets were united into one. Now its a kilometer-long, narrow market that stretches along the entire side of the Elbe River, a huge market with an assortment of poultry, vegetables and fruits, candy and souvenirs, in addition to fish. But it wasnt the fresh produce that brought the market the glory, it was the products set up by the market stalls that tourists from all over the country came to see. The market hours are limited to 5-10 a.m. in the summer and 7 a.m. in the winter.
Another feature that has made the city famous is the Reiterbahnstraße, or The Three Points Mile. This street is home to more than four dozen sexually oriented institutions, of which there are currently over a dozen.

On top of that, you can find: arcade halls, theaters, museums (of waxworks and art), cafes, pubs, bars and restaurants, hotels, movie theaters, clubs, and discotheques. Local prostitutes offer their services not only in bars, but also in the streets and on the Berbertstraße – an analogue of the Red Fronts Street in Amsterdam, where girls are in the gateways and women are not allowed to enter the street. And the history of Reaperbann Street is as follows: it was once the site of the first shipboard cable factory, which gave it its name, as Reaperbann means – &là;cable-raquo; in the translation of the word. The sailors who came ashore after the swim required settlements, which the local people were not willing to provide. Thats how the development of this street began.
