Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany. With a population of more than 1.5 million people, 14% of the city is green, and the word “Hamburger” originally actually came from Hamburg. The city is a center for culture, education, science and research.

The city has so much to offer, and many places to visit and spend time, which is why it is important to plan your trip ahead so you know where to go. One of the most popular places in the city is the Fischmarkt, a market that has been running since 1703. At the market you will find live pop German music and a variety of foods like bananas, kumquats, cherries and much more!

One of Hamburg’s most beautiful buildings is the Chilehaus; the building is shaped like an ocean liner with curved walls meeting in the shape of a ship’s bow. It is a great example of German expressionist architecture.
