A few words used to describe Hamburg have been vibrant, colorful, interesting, alive and enlightening.

After moving to Germany, I have asked nearly every one of my clients was their favorite city in Germany is and at least 80% reply with Hamburg.

They say it is a city that is breathtaking with its many canals, lakes, old architecture and harbor.

 To make things even better, this city is very green and has many parks. The side streets and old houses are painfully adorable. The city has so much history and we will get a sense of it as we walk around the streets.
