About Hamburg

Germany's second-largest city and biggest port is not shy wallflower: it has long taken pride in its history of trade with the world (and the wealth that has created) since joining medieval trading association the Hanseatic League in the Middle Ages. But despite its role as a wealthy economic stronghold, Hamburg isn't a boring, sterile business port: it's lively Reeperbahn red light district is one of the world’s most popular, filled with provocative bars, shops, and prostitutes, yet very safe for the tourist practicing common sense. Its maritime spirit shines through everywhere you look: from fantastic seafood to waterfront parks, port cruise tours to the shipping warehouse complex of Speicherstadt. It's here that you can also explore a miniature model town at Miniatur Wunderland. True to German culture, Hamburg loves its open-air markets: Rathausmarkt takes place in the central square and offers visitors a taste of authentic German food (though the American hamburger had its origins here, true Hamburger cuisine tends more to pan-fried fish and the regional pastry FranzbröThen.) The city has a long love affair with music as well, being the birthplace of Johannes Brahms and an primary incubator of the Beatles. For all its charms, Hamburg has maintained a relatively low profile on the world tourist map. Yet has plenty to dig into from historic buildings to modern theater.

Lake
The Alster Lake is divided into the inner lake and the outer lake, and is known as a pearl embedded in Hamburg. The bridge between the two lakes is a great place to see the panoramic view of Hamburg. The inner Ulster Lake is located to the east of the Town Hall Square. Many swans are on the lake, with ancient churches and shopping streets on the banks. Although the outer lake is a man-made lake, it is a great place for sailors.

What fun is there in the northern part of Germany where few people have traveled?
There may not be as romantic as the Bavarian town, perhaps without the prosperity of Munich, perhaps without the industrial modernization of Cologne and the southwestern city of Frankfurt, but this place with a long history, for thousands of years, the mountains and the sea , has lived a simple life. If you like to explore new destinations, eager to learn about some non-popular attractions, or love nature and love human history, then choosing to come to North Germany is a vacation choice in your leisure time.

Hamburg: Germany's second largest city, also the largest port city, has a long history and is estimated to be numerous. The leisurely travel mode is integrated with the increasingly fast-paced work life of local young people.
Bremen: The birthplace of the Grimm Brothers fairy tale, street musicians are the symbol of this small town, suitable for a day-round exquisite German city.
Harts Mountain: Walking through countless exquisite and well-preserved fairy-tale towns, the legend of the witches is constantly spreading in this mountain, the undeveloped virgin forest park, the old castle town, the big size The small mountain lake makes it the most famous minority resort in North Germany.
Berlin: The capital of Germany, countless historical monuments are worth visiting. The museums on the island are worth a day or two to visit, and there is also the name of Bear City, which can be robbed. Search for the statues of the bears on the street.
