The city of Hamburg, Germany is a thriving port city which traces its roots back to Emperor Charlemagne
, who ordered the castle Hammaburg built in 808 AD. The castle and the rest of the city grew between the River Alster and the River Elbe. Modern day Hamburg wears the official title "Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg" as a badge of honor, as it affords the city the status of a province. Historically, Hamburg has always leaned towards being more of an international city, and this gives colorful depth to the city.
