Germany’s second largest city
A hardworking town with interests from shipping to aerospace. Its history, shaped by trade and its role in the medieval Hanseatic League, gives it a naturally outward-looking approach. Today, this translates a remarkable number of ways, from music and culture to language and learning. Explore Hamburg and you’ll discover a port town with a heart that belongs to the world.

The History of Emigration Museum (BallinStadt Auswanderwelt) recognises the five million people who left for the New World via Hamburg – and attempts to tell just some of their stories. It’s a very human, and often moving place to come.
Must eat at:
For one of the best value quality lunches in Hamburg, head to Restaurant Cox on Greifswalder Strasse for a choice of decent international fayre and local German cuisine.
Must be there for:
Early May is time to celebrate the harbour’s birthday. Now over 800 years old, the harbour is venerated as the engine of the local economy – and the place that connects Hamburg with the outside world. Expect music on several stages, and an impressive parade of ships.
· The ZaZa Bar is good for whatever state of mind you’re in – from winding down to going out. You’ll find it in the sought-after Winterhude area of town.
· To get out of town, visit Lubeck, with its ancient walled Old Town right on the Baltic Sea. It’s chilly, but rewarding as an overnight or weekend trip.
