Cosmopolitan and vibrant …
… yet smart and eco-minded, Hamburg offers visitors a unique experience. Germany’s second largest city has long served Northern Europe as gateway to the world. Today it is at the height of its transformation into an exciting metropolis where modern life is merged with century-long tradition.
Thanks to its rich Hanseatic legacy Hamburg has the business vibe as well as the infrastructure to empower innovation in technology and urban development. Like a kaleidoscope the city unfolds its many charms across a colourful spectrum of classic culture, contemporary art, dazzling entertainment, food for every taste and fashion from luxury to independent labels. Rising above the waves of the Elbe river, at the crossroads between UNESCO World Heritage Site Speicherstadt and the newly built HafenCity, the Elbphilharmonie has become symbolic of Hamburg’s forward-looking spirit.
When it comes to food, fun and entertainment Hamburg leaves visitors spoilt for choice. Lovers of local and international cuisine are served in style – from dockside bars around Fish Market to fine dining further down the banks of the Elbe river to countless eateries in the heart of the city. After hours the party continues throughout the clubs and cultural venues of the legendary Reeperbahn and beyond.
