Hamburg, also called the Green city is the second largest city
of Germany, which lies on the Elbe River, and has been a major port
and trading center for central Europe. Today it sports 1,400 parks,
gardens, and modern buildings having close resemblance with historic
Baroque and Renaissance architecture are a common sight. At night,
the neon lights overwhelm all-night life party animals, particularly
in the city’s notorious light district, the Reeperbahn.
The city has a vast network of canals, which are more than those
of Venice are, and many of them have been converted on two artificial
lakes that take up eight percent of its total area. History has
it say that Hamburg, the green city, founded in 810 by Charlemagne,
became the intentional port in the Hanseatic League of North German
cities, which controlled trade in the Baltic and North Seas during
the 13th and 15th centuries.
The city boasts some stunning architecture with magnificent marine
time harbour areas.
Some of the most prominent landmarks include the Warehouse district,
which has been converted into an entertaining destination offering
several attractions, Blankenese, the fishing village and many more.
Furthermore, Hamburg is the gateway to the seaside and spa resorts
of the Baltic and North Sea coastline.

all makes Hamburg a pleasant city to visit. With a heritage that
is so interesting, and the role it has played in being a chief trading
port, has highly influenced the over all development of the city.
