The proximity to the sea can be felt everywhere in the northern German port and trading city of Hamburg – whether along the numerous waterways, whose height is even influenced by the tides, in the brick-dominated Speicherstadt, at the fish market with its market criers or at the extensive harbor.
Everywhere there is a hint of salt in the air, spiced with a pinch of wanderlust. At the same time, the city is surprisingly green and offers the deep blue Alster, a reservoir surrounded by cafés in the middle of the city center. The pearl on the Elbe is also architecturally not stingy with sights. One of the most famous landmarks of Hamburg is the main church St. Michaelis from the 18th century.
