Hamburg is the so-called “Germany’s gateway to the world”.  If I am not mistaken  the biggest port in Germany   is located here. We had a short 2-hours sightseeing  in this city which is not really enough to see many sights. Oh well, I was glad that I was there  even just for a short time. Our final destination that time was in the Baltic states.

Hamburg, officially Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, is the second largest city in Germany and the sixth largest city in the European Union. It is also the thirteenth largest German state.  I am hoping to visit this city again.

The city is a major tourist destination for both domestic and overseas visitors; Hamburg ranked 17th in the world for livability in 2012, and, in 2010, the city ranked 10th in the world.
