Germany’s ‘Gateway to the World’ may seem like a bold claim for most but Hamburg’s legacy as an international trading hub and home to one of the world’s busiest harbours have put this buzzing city on the map.
Lying at the head of the funnel-shaped estuary of the River Elbe, this northern German city is second only to Berlin in size and population and manages to maintain its idyllic charm despite being such a big city --a difficult task no doubt. Hamburg has become one of Europe's most important cultural and commercial centers, as well as a major tourist destination.
Take a stroll down to the Warehouse District and reminisce the continuous lines of tall rustic red-brick buildings once used to store tobacco, coffee, dried fruit, and spices. If that doesn’t do the trick, Hamburg is also for its musical spirit so stop by the Elbphilharmonie, Hamburg’s new concert hall and watch one of their many music shows many of which feature artists from all over the world.
Hamburg is a historic city with streets filled with wonderful stories just waiting to be discovered.
