Oh, the joys of an English website! Hamburg has one. Yippee! So, any time of year, go there and see what’s going on before you plan your trip.
This year, check out the Port Festival. No, not Port wine, but may be just as fun as the Hamburgers celebrate their port’s 821st birthday (and I thought I was getting old!). Check out the details on the website and note that parking is limited, so plan on taking a train or taxi into town.
