Hamburg is a lovely city. It’s easy to find your way around the city either by foot or with the U-Bahn. The city is a mixture of historic and modern architecture. As always the German people are very friendly and although their English is not the best they are still welcoming and giving a very good service. If you are interested in naval history Hamburg is a great place to visit. The city was once described as the gateway to Germany (and maybe Europe) and the ships have brought in lots of goods for centuries – they even brought The Beatles who had their first real gigs on the street Große Freiheit in the Reeperbahn area from 1960-1962.
If you haven’t visited Hamburg yet I would highly recommend you doing so.
