Gateway to the World
As the country's biggest port and one of the busiest in all of Europe, Hamburg has a well-deserved reputation as Germany's Gateway to the World. A city-state of sorts, it enjoys a large degree of independence from the rest of the country. Hamburg is one of the most affluent cities in Europe. A center of media, industry, and finance, the city is the seat of one of the world's oldest banks. It's also home to more than 10,000 private businesses. Often cited as one of the friendliest and most livable cities in Europe, Hamburg is a popular vacation spot for both domestic and foreign visitors. Its proud mercantile background is reflected in the architecture of warehouses-turned-museums, such as the International Maritime Museum and Museum of Hamburg History. Hamburg is an open city that has never been shy of its success. Explore the vibrant neighborhoods near the water, known for their multicultural eateries, thriving music scene, and array of things to do. Plan your visit to Hamburg and other destinations in Germany using our Germany day trip planner.
