Moin from Hamburg. Hello!

The “Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg” is the second-largest city in Germany after Berlin, with a population of over 1.8 million. Its official name reflects Hamburg’s history as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League. Before the 1871 Unification of Germany, it was a fully sovereign city state. Beset by disasters such as the Great Fire of Hamburg, North Sea flood of 1962 and military conflicts including World War II bombing raids, the city has managed to recover and emerge wealthier after each catastrophe.

Hamburg’s Speicherstadt and Kontorhausviertel were declared World Heritage Sites by UNESCO in 2015. The city rivers and canals are crossed by around 2,500 bridges, making it the city with the highest number of bridges in Europe. Aside from its rich architectural heritage, the city is also home to notable cultural venues such as the Elbphilharmonie and Laeiszhalle concert halls. St. Pauli’s Reeperbahn is among the best-known European entertainment districts. (Source: Wikipedia).
