When visiting Germany at any time of year, always dress in layers.

Make sure you have some lined winter boots and a warm coat with an attached hood. Since they will take up a good amount of room, you can wear the boots and coat on the plane. You might even consider long underwear, which you can get in silk from retailers like LLBean. It takes up almost no room in your luggage and can dry overnight.

Hamburg is a very classy city. Restrained, but classy. Regarding behavior in the cold, even then lots of Hamburgers are out and about, including standing outside at little drink kiosks along the Alster or sitting outside with lap robes at Starbucks and other cafes.

Essentially, what you would wear in Penna. in September. Since you will probably be doing more walking, have asolid pair of shoes that are water resistant and also some rain gear.
