Hamburg is located in the North of Germany and is the second-largest city in the country with a population of almost 2 million. The city is incredibly green with an abundance of trees and parks.
Hamburg is an important harbor town on the Elbe river. The Alster river and numerous channels run directly through the city center. In fact, Hamburg has more bridges than London, Amsterdam and Venice combined! In addition, the city has numerous museums, theaters, cafés, bars and clubs. The weather is typically warm in late spring/early summer, allowing you to sit outside and enjoy a meal in one of its 103 districts. The Speicherstadt (warehouse district) and HafenCity have seen many changes in recent years with modern apartment buildings, offices and restaurants popping up—certainly worth a visit!
Although Northern Germans can at times come across as distant, they warm up once you get to know them. We have compiled some important information about life in Germany and will provide this to all participants.
