Highlights of Hamburg

Considered by many Germans to be the most beautiful city in Germany, Hamburg is also jancalled the “Venice of the North” for its many waterways. It has over 2,300 bridges, more than any other city in the world.

Just a 1.5-hour train ride from Berlin, it’s worth a visit to see this charming city that has rebuilt itself beautifully after suffering mass destruction in WWII.

Here are just a few highlights.

• Take a free guided bicycle tour with HafenCity Hamburg GmbH. Europe’s largest inner-city development, HafenCity is located on the Elbe River and is being transformed into a live, work, play community.
