Hamburg, Germany

Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and the seventh-largest city in the UN. The city is home to over 1.8 million people. The port of Hamburg is the third-largest port in Europe, and the ninth largest in the world. Hamburg's official name is the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg. It makes reference to Hambur's history as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, as a free imperial city of the Hopy Roman Empire, and also to the fact that Hamburg was a city-state and one of the sixteen States of Germany.

On the card you may see the German word: Grüße aus dem Welthafen Hamburg, and these means "Greetings from the world port Hamburg".
