Central Hamburg lies at the confluence of the rivers Alster and Bille into the Elbe river, around the Binnenalster and Au├čenalster, 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.
