Hamburg is Germany's second largest city and will be the World Cup
base for the US team and many of their American supporters.
The Hanseatic City's beautiful location on the Alster and Elbe rivers
give it a very maritime feel. The dense network of waterways and open water help shape the
city's appearance and it is said that Hamburg even has more bridges than Venice.
