Known as the Gateway to the World, it owes its name to its motto "Tor zur Welt": Hamburg, a fascinating and vibrant city located in northern Germany! As one of the largest ports in Europe, we also see a reference to its name... The city's port activity has shaped the architecture of its streets: go through the chic Eppendorf district, with its various green spaces such as the colourful and well-maintained Planten un Blomen park or the Old Botanical Garden, a magnificent garden offering all kinds of plants. But don't forget to visit the port, and more particularly the warehouse district, called Speicherstadt, a monument in itself which is worth a visit! For a calmer and more serene place, the Alster basin is composed of two bodies of water and lush surroundings, a most pleasant walk. With its air of the Venice of the North, you won't want to miss Hamburg's network of canals, with no less than 2,300 bridges to get from one street to the next. Of course, don't leave before visiting the Miniatur-Wunderland, an incredible attraction featuring a scaled-down electric train system.
What is the history of the Hamburger Stück in Hamburg? The Hamburger Stück started out as a small sandwich enjoyed by sailors when they were passing through the city. After being exported to the United States, it gave birth to the fast-food burger!
