Hamburg my pearl,
you beautiful city

you are my home, you are my life
you are the city I can count on, I can count on.*

*song: Lotto King Karl – Hamburg, meine Perle

Hamburg my pearl!

Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany. The city is crisscrossed by hundreds of canals, some of which are called Fleete, and also has extensive parks and green spaces. Because of the number of canals, Hamburg is also known as the Venice of the North. No other city in Europe has as many bridges as Hamburg: 2485.
Boats sail on the Binnenalster near the city center, and numerous cafés are located around the reservoir.

The Jungfernstieg connects the New Town with the Old Town, where landmarks such as the main church of St. Michaelis from the 18th century are located.
