Hamburg, Germany's second largest city, is one of the most important ports in the world, a fact which has long guaranteed its economic and cultural independence.
Nikolaifleet is a canal in the Altstadt of Hamburg, which was the original branch of the Alster estuary. It separates the Cremon island from the mainland. First mentioned in 1188, the Nikolaifleet is considered one of the oldest parts of the Port of Hamburg.
