Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and the sixth largest city in the European Union.
Home to around 1.8 million people, its name is from the first permanent building on the site, a castle built in 808 A. D by Emperor Charlemagne.
It has a total area of 755 square kilometers having warm climate in the month of June, July and August. The coldest months are December to February.
If you do not want to go without dinner, you need to go the restaurants no later than 19.30. The only alternative if you arrive late is to go to the train station where there are various places to eat. Hamburg is very easy to get to from other Hanseatic cities with public transport.
The suggested time to visit is during spring, when you can enjoy the many outdoor cafés which are lively at night and beautiful during the day. Hostels are comfortable and clean. It's a little-known alternative to the very popular Berlin. The harbour and canals are stunning.
