About Hamburg   Hamburg today is an elegant, modern city and a cultural center, widely known for its opera, theaters, magazine and book-publishing houses, radio and television broadcasting centers, and film studios. At its center are two lakes, the Binnenalster (Inner Alster) and the Aussenalster (Outer Alster). The St. Pauli district, with its well-known street, the Reeperbahn, includes numerous places of entertainment. Hamburg is the seat of a university (founded 1919), several museums, and medical and technical institutes. There are extensive zoological and botanical gardens. Noteworthy buildings include the baroque St. Michael's Church (1750–62), rebuilt (1907–12) after a fire; the Church of St. Jacobi (begun in the 14th cent.); and the Renaissance-style city hall (1886–97). Felix Mendelssohn and Johannes Brahms were born in the city. Hamburgh Stadium Volksparkstadion is the home ground of Hamburger SV and was one of the 12 stadia used in the 2006 Football World Cup, which hosted four group games and a quarter final. Through a sponsorship deal the stadium is officially named Imtech Arena, and has previously been called the AOL Arena and HSH Nordbank Arena. Due to UEFA regulations on stadium sponsorship, the stadium is referred to as the Hamburg Arena for European matches.
