The climate of Hamburg (Germany)
Hamburg is the biggest port in Germany. The city is located on the banks of the Elbe River which is linked by canals to the Baltic Sea. Hamburg is one of the most important ports in Europe and has always been an important city in European trade. The most important function of the port is storing freight containers. Large container vessels dock here on a daily basis to unload their freight which will be transported to other regions in Europe from here. Hamburg is a lively metropolis. Mainly because of the dock workers Hamburg has an exuberant nightlife without closing time. Hamburg has a tolerant character. Lonely sailors can visit the red light district. A more innocent passing time can be found in the streets Neuer Wall and Lange Reihe. Nice shops with the latest fashion and boutiques with top designer brands are situated here. Hamburg has a maritime climate strongly influenced by the Elbe River. A maritime climate type is characterized by small differences in temperatures between summer and winter and four distinct seasons. Precipitation figures are highest during fall. Winters are cold with temperatures remaining above freezing point. During spring temperatures slowly start to rise. During the summer temperatures are around 20 degrees Celsius (68 degrees Fahrenheit). Temperatures reach tropical values during only a limited number of days.
