2. Hamburg – Hanseatic Jewel of the North-Sea

As one of the major ports of the Hanseatic League, Hamburg has always been a gateway to the world, and is a wealthy city that takes pride in its international trade and shipbuilding history. UNESCO world heritage sites like the 18th century warehouse districts of the Speicherstadt, and the straight-forward, liberal-minded attitude of its citizens still bear witness to these times.

As Europe’s third biggest harbour and Germany’s second biggest city Hamburg remains as the heart of the country’s maritime and trade industry. While Hamburg has kept his historical appeal, it has certainly gained new qualities as well. A very young population keeps the city buzzing with life and in-line with the times. While friends of the fine arts might enjoy the works of Bach and Beethoven in the newly finished Elbe Philharmonic, party goers should not miss out on a stroll along Hamburg’s historic red-light district Reeperbahn, which nowadays is one of the most visited party locations in Germany.

5. Dusseldorf – Rhinish Hospitality

German Courses Dusseldorf

‘Dusseldorp’, as the settlement is named in the earliest sources, started out as a modest fishing village. Situated on the right bank of the Rhine, the town was subsequently secured by moats and embankments. Around 1350, a first boundary wall enclosed the approximately four hectares of the town.

Today as a city of 600.000 inhabitants Düsseldorf is known for its fashion industry, art scene and being one of the richest cities in Germany. The Rhine River runs right through its heart, dividing the Old Town, the ‘Altstadt’ on the east bank from modern commercial areas to the west facing each other as polar opposites and giving the city a truly unique flair. Whether you are looking to go shopping or dine in high-end boutiques and restaurants, take a walk through the stunning old town and visit 13th century buildings and churches, have a drink on the banks of the river Rhine or participate in the traditional Dusseldorf carnival with its colourful costumes, self-irony and cultural satire – this city has something to offer to everybody.
