Favorite thing: Hamburg is Germany's largest port - and Europe's second largest. (I think Rotterdam is #1.)

Statistics: every year 12,000 ships load and unload some 70,000,000 tons of cargo here.

A moderate bluff rises above the old port buildings, giving an excellent view of the bustling harbor. Yes, those are grape vines planted on the hillside!

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
