I have had this question twice already, so I will add a post to answer to all other potential applicants:

Hamburg is Germany´s second largest city, and is in the far north of Germany, very near the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. It is the largest shipping port in Europe after Amsterdam, and is (much like Amsterdam and Venice) a city of canals, rivers and lakes. The weather is very similar to San Francisco or Portland or Seattle. Rainy in the Fall and Winter, beautiful in the summer. Although Hamburg is as far north as Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, the proximity to the Ocean and the Ocean currents keep Hamburg between 30 degrees fahrenheit and 80 degrees fahrenheit all year, rarely if ever outside that scope. We rarely see snow or winter, and hot days are so rare that no buildings have air conditioning.

Check googlemaps for views on our location in Germay or for a better breakdown of our average monthly temperatures.

Please also note that the "€" symbol represents the Euro, the currency in most of the European Union. The Euro is currently trading at about € 1= $ 1.57
