Emigrants could stay in a special area called Veddel that was near the ships.
An Emigration Museum in Hamburg tells a lot about what emigrants experienced there.

Hi, everybody,

I'm looking for information about how people >from other countries lived,
and how they made arrangements to catch ships in Hamburg, when they started
elsewhere.

My g'grandparents DAVID and BESSIE GOLDMAN and 4 kids were >from Lithuania
but went to Hamburg to catch a ship to Glasgow and then another ship to
the US. Don't know how long they were in Germany, but it had to have
been awhile. I'd appreciate any suggestions you may have. Thanks!
