Hamburg is one of Germany’s most attractive cities combining urbane sophistication, maritime flair, the open-mindedness of a metropolis, and high recreational value. With its wide range of cultural and sports offerings, Hamburg is never boring. As the second-largest city in Germany, it has traditionally been seen as a gateway to the world. Its port is not only the largest seaport in Germany and the second-largest in Europe, but a residential neighborhood with leisure, recreational and educational facilities. Hamburg is a very special place. A green city criss-crossed by waterways, it is upscale and elegant around the Alster and the main shopping streets, and creative and youthful in the *Karolinenviertel* and *Sternschanze* neighborhoods. Sunset over the Elbe, cinemas, musicals, and concerts of an evening, restaurants, bars, and clubs at night, the Fischmarkt at daybreak, sailing on or walking by the Alster lake or the Elbe river, jogging in the Stadtpark – Hamburg has it all.
