NORTHERN GERMANY Hamburg 1


While in Hamburg, be sure to stop by the city’s neo-renaissance style city


hall. T e building is one of a few in Hamburg untouched by World War II, and it was the site of Nazi commander-in-chief Gerneral Woltz’s


surrender to the British Army in


1945. T e lobby of the building is open to the public, and there are tours available in English throughout the day.


Next head off to a sightseeing tour by boat.


T ere are a wide range of cruises by steam boat that depart frequently, and most tours last from one to three hours. Once back on dry land, hop back on the S-Bahn to the St. Pauli


district


to see where the Fab Four got their start. Beatles-Tour Hamburg leaves at 4 p.m. and 6p.m. from the front of the Beatle Mania Exhibition on the Reeperbahn.


2 3 Aſt er a hearty meal at the market, travelers can take the S-Bahn


across the river to the Ballin Stadt or Port of Dreams Emigration Museum. T e museum is on the site of the emigration hall where Germans leſt for the “New World” from 1850 until 1938. Be sure to check out the genealogical research center in Building No. 1, where visitors can see if their relatives passed through the halls and even what boat they leſt on.


Hamburg is Germany’s second-largest city. Located on a busy port and full of green spaces and attractions, it is much less “touristy” than other German cities.
