Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany, and also has the second largest European
Port. The city lies at the junction of the rivers Elbe, Alster and Bille, roughly mid-way between
the North Sea and the Baltic. Its population in 2007 was about 1.8 million. Hamburg was heavily
bombed during World War 2 with many civilian casualties.
