The central part of Hamburg is crossed by a number of a number of canals and waterways, as it lies at the confluence of the rivers Alster and Bille into the Elbe river. The Binnenalster and Au├čenalster are artificial lakes, formed by damming the Alster river. The Jungfernstieg is the most famous waterfront in Hamburg. It's facing the Binnenalster and together with the Neuer Jungfernstieg is a very high end and elegant area of the city with a number of high end shops, restaurants and hotels. The many streams, rivers and canals are crossed by over 2300 bridges, more than London, Amsterdam and Venice put together. Hamburg has more bridges inside its city limits than any other city in the world and more canals than Amsterdam and Venice combined.
