24 hours in Hamburg

It was not my first time in Hamburg. I have been traveling to this city many times before and I have to say we have a love-hate relationship: Lovely to visit, but not a place where I want to live. Nevertheless, there are a few places in Hamburg that are definitely worth a visit, so make sure check them out when in Hamburg ☺
For shopping go to Jungfernstieg (Alster Arkaden), which is at the artificial lake Binnenalster. Binnenalster is a lovely place to sit, enjoy some ice-cream and watching the boats. Directly at the Alster is the hotel Fairmont Vier Jahreszeiten. It is simply beautiful! The Speicherstadt is a district of warehouses from the 1900s. It is at the southern end of Alte Deichstra├če and a must-see when in Hamburg. At Speicherstadt you can also find the world's largest model railway layout, the Minatur Wunderland, which is pretty cool for nerds like me ☺ Near the Speicherstadt is a relatively new quarter of the city with is called HafenCity with modern architecture including the new and finally opened Elbphilharmonie (first picture) that I absolutely recommend visiting, the design and its construction is truly amazing.
In summer I love making boat trips from Landungsbr├╝cken, but those can sometimes be quite pricey. So, make sure that you have a HVV ticket that includes free boat rides. You either hate or love the district Sankt Pauli. I personally do not loke this place, but I still recommend visiting it once. The best places to eat in Hamburg are Schanzenviertel, which offers well vegan food, or Karolinenviertel where locals like to eat. 
Have you ever been to Hamburg? Where are your favorite places in the city?
