In Hamburg, 1,319,700 residents are eligible to take part in Sunday's State Legislature elections. The expected outcome up there in the north differs from the usual election results in the rest of Germany.
Hamburg is the next federal state within Germany to hold elections for its legislative assembly. The wind of change is reaching the north too. On February 23rd, 2020, the Greens might overtake the Social Democrats, for the first time ever.
In the summer of 1960, The Beatles performed in Hamburg for the first time. Now, 59 years later, there are no Beatles and there is hardly any commemoration in the city that made them famous. But next year, a Beatles Festival is scheduled to take place in Hamburg.
