Hamburg sits on the River Elbe and is Germany’s largest port. It is known as the ‘Tor zur Welt’ – Germany’s gateway to the world. So when visiting Hamburg you must take a cruise around the harbour, exploring the old canals of HafenCity, the docks and shipyards and the busy container port. You can see Germany’s exports in action, last year their exports rose to a record 118.2 billion euros.
That’s enough economics lets get back on track – sightseeing and drinking German beer.
