Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany after Berlin. It is also the eighth largest city in the European Union.

It sits on the river Elbe at the confluence with the Alster and Bille.

Hamburg has been awarded the "European green capital" for 2011.

Hamburg has Europe's largest red light district, The Reeperbahn.

Alsterwasser [a shandy made with beer and lemonade].

American Hamburgers also originate from here, Frikadelle, a pan-fried patty (usually larger and thicker than the American counterpart) made from a mixture of ground beef, soaked stale bread, egg, chopped onion, salt and pepper.
