 FACTS:
The famous Harbor of Hamburg is the largest port in Germany, and the second-largest port in Europe after Rotterdam in the Netherlands. The deep, wide waters of the Elbe have allowed the city a location that is unusually far inland. This makes it ideal for delivering goods deep into the heart of the country, and made the city the second busiest port in Europe. It's not only warehousing, industrial and logistic center but also a backdrop for modern culture and the ports history. About it's history there are various museum ships; musical theaters, bars, restaurants and hotels - and even a floating boat church. It covers an area of more than 7,200 hectares, and it was founded on May 7, 1189. Hamburg celebrates this date with the "Hafengeburtstag", a big funfair.
