* Parts of Hamburg seem like a CityOfCanals. All buildings in the Speicherstadt (Storage Town) have one canal side and one street side. The Alster river is mostly a canal or system of canals in Hamburg except for the artificial lakes Binnenalster and Außenalster. Further canals extend from the Außenalster. It's no wonder that Hamburg has more bridges than Venice, Amsterdam (two rightful [[CityOfCanals Cities of Canals]]) and [[LondonTown London]] combined.

* Residential areas in Hamburg range from concrete ghettos (Steilshoop, Mümmelmannsberg, Kirchdorf-Süd etc.) to luxury quarters (Blankenese, the Elbchaussee, but also the areas around the Außenalster). That said, housing in Hamburg is always expensive. Not [[BigApplesauce Lower Manhattan]]-expensive, not [[LondonTown City of London]]-expensive, but expensive. Constant gentrification of attractive and formerly comparatively cheap [[CultClassic cult quarters]] with old, unmodernized houses (Schanze, St. Georg) doesn't help, nor does the construction of new residential zones which almost always end up in the premium class. At the same time, Hamburg has 1.4 million square meters of vacant offices, and new office buildings keep popping up everywhere.

* Hamburg speaks its own [[GermanDialects German dialect]] named Missingsch which is described as "when a native Low German speaker tries to climb up to High German/Standard German but keeps sliding down into Low German." The latter (a.k.a. Plattdeutsch) is known in Hamburg, too, with a variety of subdialects. In fact, the Ohnsorg Theater has its own Plattdeutsch dialect.

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 [[UsefulNotes/TheChancellorsOfGermany Helmut Schmidt]] and his competence for managing a crisis to national attention).

* Further famous landmarks around the harbor area include the Elbphilharmonie ([[{{Vaporware}} finally opening]] in 2017), the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken, the [[Disney/TheLionKing Lion King]] musical tent and a few times every year the ''[[CoolShip Queen Mary 2]]''. Landungsbrücken and ''Queen Mary 2'' are often used for the EiffelTowerEffect on picture postcards. An entire new residential district is also under construction, imaginatively called the [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin HafenCity]]. (There were plans to dedicate some of its area to Olympia 2024, but the plans for application were turned down by a narrow margin on a public vote.)
