Hamburg is a major German port which lies on the Elbe on the Jutland Peninsula. It is a city with a long and turbulant history which suffered severe bombardment in WW2. Much of the centre was destroyed and it was several decades before the redevelopment was completed. Hamburg is a very pleasant city with very few high rise buildings. The skyline is marked by the spires of several churches including St. Nicholas, which claimed to be the world's tallest building in the nineteenth century, and St. Michael, St. James and St. Catherine. The city is a great centre for culture with over forty theatres, sixty museums and more than one hundred music venues. Hamburg is also a good destination for a shopping spree. Monckebergstrasse is the main retail area. The city lies at the confluence of the Elbe, the Alster and the Bille, and with the additional streams and canals that cross the town, there are a total of two thousand five hundred bridges. Hamburg is known as a very green city as there are large swathes of parks and gardens. The Planten un Blomen is the most famous of the parks and there are often concerts, theatrical performances and choreographed water shows throughout the year.
