Central Hamburg lies at the confluence of the rivers Alster and Bille into the Elbe river, around the Binnenalster and Außenalster, both formed by damming the Alster to create lakes. As such, the centre of Hamburg is crossed by a number of canals and waterways. The area is very scenic with several historic buildings and buildings in Hamburg's characteristic northern-German red-brick architecture. Many of these buildings were reconstructed after the destruction of World War II.
