Hamburg is Germany's largest port, a cosmopolitan center of culture, and a thriving metropolis that is a major hub of media, industry, education and commerce. It also is somewhat "off the tourist track," in that it's not yet perceived as having the same attractions of say Munich or Berlin. IMHO, this works to Hamburg's advantage, in that here you are less likely to run into package tourists and guidebook slaves.

Be assured - there are no rats in the Rathaus!

    You have taken nice photos of Hamburg. I used to live there for a few years and its actually a nice town. The first HP picture must have been taken from the Harbor hotel there.

    I only know of D.O.C. on Italian wine bottles, where it means Denominazione di Origine Controllata. So maybe they're trying to imply that they have good Italian wines. Interesting new tips here!
