About Hamburg

To quote Ernest Hemingway, “Hamburg is simply the most beautiful city in the world”. For international guests, it is a pulsating metropolis with charm and style. For its residents, it is the proud pearl of the North. Hamburg has more recreational areas than any other German city, more bridges than Venice, and its cultural offerings range from musicals to outstanding operas, small clubs, and the sheer pleasure of strolling through St. Pauli. Not to mention the harbor, with this special atmosphere that cannot be found anywhere else on the globe. Hardly anyone can resist being drawn in by the fascinating mixture of a more than 1200 years lasting history and one of the world’s largest and most modern container terminals. High-tech companies like Airbus Industries are just as much a part of it as a delicious fish sandwich down at the “Landungsbrücken”. Every visitor in Hamburg ought to see and enjoy this pier in particular. There, 90 kilometers in front of the open water, you can feel and smell the sea combined with big city flair like nowhere else. From this position you also have a marvelous view of the new landmark: the Elbe philharmonic concert hall “Elbphilharmonie” with the unique acoustics designed by Yasuhisa Toyota – enjoyable for everyone in spring 2017. This alone is reason enough to get excited about this city.

The European gateway to the world is pleased to welcome you!
