Hamburg is a watery
city, geographically, historically and atmospherically.
It is Germany’s second largest city and
lies on the Elbe River, for centuries a major
port and trading centre for central Europe. T
he city has a network
of canals that rival those of Venice (it is said
to have more bridges than Venice) and is centred
on two artificial lakes that take up eight percent
of its total area. Probably because of all the
water, Hamburg is also known as Germany’s
'green city', sporting 1,400 parks and gardens.
Modern buildings sit
cheek by jowl with historic Baroque and Renaissance
architecture, and by night the neon lights dazzle
all-night revellers, particularly in the city’s
notorious red light district, the Reeperbahn.
