Hamburg is not my favorite city in Europe. Perhaps I am being too hard on it by comparing it to the likes of Amsterdam, Vienna, Budapest, etc. But, it's important to know before booking a trip. Things you can get out of Hamburg: serious nightlife (if you're looking for a backdrop for your stag getaway, Hamburg is for you), *some* greenery/pretty architecture (although, in my opinion, other cities fare far better), good location to travel to Benelux or other German cities (if you are backpacking, you could stop by for a quick visit). I apologize if this sounds harsh, but those are probably the best qualities. Things you might not get from Hamburg: the same sense of European splendor that you may get from other cities, cleanliness (this city is not as clean as other cities in Europe), peace and quiet in the evening (see note on nightlife), greenery/canals (at least, not as much as other cities). If it sounds like I am saying that Hamburg is a sub-par Amsterdam or some other great European city, that's probably because I am. Not my favorite. But-maybe it's your gem!
Hamburg is one of my favorite cities in Germany. Beautiful architecture, nice people and plenty of really good restaurants.
People in Hamburg call their city: city of bridge. Because there are more than 2500 bridges in this city. Some of venice and London's bridges are in this city too. Most of the tourists in this city love to swim and visit the person who built this bridges.
Hip, beautiful city. Don't forget a rain or wind jacket, a weather like that is on the daily schedule. Also wear good shoes- you won't be able to stop exploring this exciting place.
