Abbreviation for Hamburg, Germany


Strangely enough, Hamburg has for many years been almost totally overlooked by the majority of Norwegians looking for a nice long weekend destination.

After all, we are talking about a destination that only has an hour and a half travel time by air from Eastern Norway. And there are several airlines that bring you directly to this old Hanseatic city, SAS / Lufthansa, KLM and Norwegian.

Hamburg is a port city which is also situated on two idyllic lakes. A number of canals have meant that the city has more bridges than Venice itself.

Hamburg offers Gothic architecture and old medieval timber buildings, cathedrals and green parks. The city also has a modern site, with skyscrapers and trendy steel-and-glass buildings that house several of Germany’s largest companies.

The weather can be unpredictable in the north of Germany, but you always have plenty to go to in the country’s second largest city, whether you are traveling for a romantic weekend, looking for culture or want a nice family holiday.
