Hamburg is located in the northern part of Germany. With approximately 1,750,000 inhabitants, it is Germany’s second largest city, but the parks, lakes and canals spread across the city give it the ambience of a small town.
Summer is the best time to visit Hamburg; the average temperature is 16.9° C. July is the hottest month and also the rainiest. Winters are cold with some snowfall and ice, the average temperature is 1.2°C. Fog is a frequent occurrence.
Hamburg came up around a castle that was built in the area in the early part of the Middle Ages. Soon it became an important trading port. While World War I resulted in Hamburg losing most of its trade, air raids during World War II almost completely destroyed it.
Today, Hamburg has regained much of its past glory and is Germany’s largest harbour and a thriving commercial centre.
