travel42 Port Guide: Hamburg

Hamburg travel42 Port of Call Guide

With more than 32 mi/53 km of canals and more than 2,300 bridges, the cosmopolitan port city of Hamburg, Germany, has an independent, entrepreneurial spirit.

Germany's second-largest city is proud of its status as a "city state" and a "Free and Hanseatic Town."

The city has established itself as a media and advertising center, but shipping is still a major industry, as it has been for more than 800 years.
