Hamburg is located in the north of Germany, near the North and Baltic Seas. It is bordered by the states of Schleswig-Holstein and Lower Saxony. The city is divided into seven boroughs, each with its own unique identity and attractions.

Hamburg has a long and rich history. It was founded in 810 and became a major trading port in the Middle Ages. It was a member of the Hanseatic League, a powerful trading alliance of German cities. Hamburg was an important port during the Age of Discovery, and its port was the site of the first German East India Company. In the 19th century, the city experienced rapid industrialization and became a major port for emigration to the United States.

During World War II, Hamburg was heavily damaged by Allied bombing raids. After the war, the city was rebuilt and has since become a major center of commerce and culture. It is home to many universities, museums, theaters, and other cultural institutions.
