  Hamburg by Leipzig
by Leipzig
 
 

Hamburg is both state and city. It has about 1.7 million inhabitants and has the largest port of Germany and Europe's second largest. In World War Two Hamburg was almost completely destroyed by Allied air raids. Today steel and glass structures dominate the city. Today Hamburg is called "The Green City" as nearly 50% of its area is marked with water, forests and farmland; therefore it is Europe's greenest city. The Neon-Light destrict of Reeperbahn gave Hamburg in the second half of the 20th century the name "Sin-City".
