Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is the second largest
city in Germany with its 1.7 million inhabitants. With 755 square
kilometers, the city area is seven times bigger than Paris and two
and a half times bigger than London. As a result, Hamburg's living
and housing standards are particularly high. As much as 14% of the
city area is made up of green spaces and recreational areas. Hamburg
has 2,302 bridges - more than Venice and Amsterdam combined. With
over 90 consulates, Hamburg is second only to New York City in the
world. As a trade centre, Hamburg has always been outward-looking,
and this has shaped the mentality of the inhabitants of Hamburg.
Hamburg's facilities range from the Kunsthalle Art Museum and the
State Opera to music clubs on the Reeperbahn. Hamburg boasts 31
theatres, six music halls, ten cabarets and 50 state and private
museums. Of the 4,000 restaurants, 2,400 offer foreign cuisine.
The banks of the Elbe and the Alster rivers are ideal for a stroll.
The port sight-seeing trips are impressive and they offer a special
perspective on the panorama of Hamburg.
