* Hamburg crops up a bit in the works of [[DichterAndDenker Heinrich Heine]], most notably in ''Deutschland, ein Wintermärchen'', which describes a journey through northwestern Germany (starting in Aachen on the western border) to Hamburg not long after more than a third of the inner city was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1842 and which ends with a tête-à-tête between the author and Hammonia, the female personification of the city. Heine lived in Hamburg for a time in his youth near his rich uncle, the banker and philanthropist Salomon Heine (who later also financially supported his nephew). Because Hamburg had a more lenient censorship than most other German states of the era, this was where most of Heine's works were published during his lifetime.

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg has been Germany's second-largest city ever since Vienna no longer belongs to Germany (i. e. 1866). This position was cemented when Hamburg (north of the Elbe river, built around the Alster river), Altona (west of Hamburg), Wandsbek (east of Hamburg) and Harburg (south of the Elbe river and Hamburg) were united by the Groß-Hamburg-Gesetz (Greater Hamburg Law) of 1938. Hamburg also is the second largest city in Europe (behind St. Petersburg) that is not a national capital. Although it is technically not a coastal city and a good 60 miles away from the North Sea, it has a quite maritime flair, also due to being a traditional MerchantCity and former part of the HanseaticLeague, and Europe's second-largest seaport because big sea-faring ships can sail up the Elbe river.

Hamburg was founded early in the 9th century as the seat of a bishop to bring Christianity to the territories to the Slavic people in the east and the Scandinavians to the north; the most famous among the bishops of Hamburg was St. Ansgar, the "Apostle of the North". However, this did not make the town popular, and it was burned down a few times during the following years by Vikings coming up the Elbe and by Obodrites from Mecklenburg, and the seat of the bishop was moved west to Bremen. During the Middle Ages Hamburg gradually achieved de facto independence from the bishop and the count of Holstein, and it has been a self-governed state of its own ever since, with a few minor interruptions (from 1811 to 1814 it was officially part of France, for instance). As a small state, it was not able to "make history" of its own, so the big events in the city's history tend to be its major disasters, notably the Great Fire of 1842 (which destroyed over a third of the inner city), the Firestorm of 1943 ("Operation Gomorrha", which after World War 2 led to a macabre rivalry with Dresden over which city had suffered more), and the storm flood of 1962 (which first brought [[TheChancellorsOfGermany Helmut Schmidt]] and his competence for managing a crisis to national attention).

* On the same street but more to the east, the church of St. Nikolai [[MonumentalDamageResistance of which only the tower remains]] after the WorldWarII bombings. It was another one of the five main churches and the tallest building in the world from 1874 to 1876. Somewhat ironically -- since it was destroyed by Royal Air Force raids -- it was built by a British architect in a neogothic style after the original medieval-baroque church was destroyed in the Great Fire of 1842.
