A child-led tour of Hamburg in Germany
Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and has a busy container port situated on the River Elbe, about 100km from the North Sea. Zoe is 9-years-old and lives and goes to school very near the River Elbe. Zoe discusses with her classmates the differences between Hamburg and a town they visited in England. The discussion is illustrated by images of the river, tunnels, river traffic and the port and harbour side with its warehouses and landing stages. Zoe and her friend experience the thrills of the famous ‘Hamburger Dom’ fair, and we see views of the famous Christmas market, plus the inland lakes and canals created by the damming of rivers Binnen and Alster.
