Hamburg is located in Germany. The city takes its name from the first permanent building on the site, a fortress ordered built by Emperor Charlemagne in 808 AD. Hamburg is the 2nd largest city in Germany with an estimated population of 1.7 million living in the city’s urban area and +/- 4.3 million people living in the Hamburg metropolitan area. Hamburg is also the home of the 3rd largest port in Europe (behind Antwerp and Rotterdam in the Netherlands). Hamburg is definately on my list of European cities that I want to visit one day. This photo of the Hamburg skyline has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 22nd of October 2010.
