Hamburg is a beautiful historic port, but also a modern, thriving, city. This is a city of canals, parks, waterfront pubs and beautiful buildings. Though Hamburg is an international port and commercial city, it is also a city of culture and elegance, with opera, ballet, numerous theatres, medieval churches and museums. With 1.7 million inhabitants, Hamburg is a wonderful location in which to learn German, a city where there is always something new to see and do, always a new part of the city to explore.
