Ich Bin ein Hamburger

Filed under: Food, Germany, Language — Tags: , , — furtherglory @ 11:46 am

The title of my blog post today is the way that a German person might say that they live in the city of Hamburg in Germany.

In the video below, a German woman is shown, as she pronounces the name of the city known as Hamburg.

I have set the video to start at 35 seconds in, when you can hear the German woman start speaking.  She is speaking about the devastation that took place in the city of Hamburg.  Even if you can’t understand what she is saying, you can still view the photos.

In the photo below, you can see an American food that is known as a Hamburger.  American news reporters sometimes pronounce the name of the German City and the name of the American food the same way, but if you listen carefully to the woman in the video, the German pronunciation  of Hamburg sounds very different.

This is an American hamberger


  1. If you watch the video you’ll hear the nice lady tell you how fag German cops let a bunch of masked black-clad scum trash parts of Hamburg with impunity.

  5. When I lived in Germany for 20 months, while my husband was an American Army officer stationed in Germany, I learned to speak German the way that the German people spoke Germany. When I returned to America, I took a college class in German, so that I could continue to speak German, and I would not forget what I had learned in Germany.

    I soon learned that German is not spoken in America the same way that it is spoken in Germany. Near the end of the class, two of my fellow students took a trip to Germany. They learned that the German people do not speak German the way that it is taught in America.
