Voyage to the Gateway to the World

One of the most important harbours in Europe, Hamburg is proud of its mercantile roots.

It was a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, and has been doing business with the world ever since. It is both the wealthiest city in Germany, and its greenest, with many parks and nature reserves, a diverse collection of museums (from the working-class life of the St. Pauli district to the spooky Hamburg dungeon) and galleries (from famous masters to erotic art).

Hamburg is also a gateway to Berlin, capital city of a reunited Germany, and home to major monuments and Cold War relics, including a section of the Berlin Wall and the infamous Checkpoint Charlie.
