Its location alone – in the heart of Hamburg and yet right next to a large park – sets the CCH apart. The ICE train station is right on the doorstep, it's just a 15-minute taxi ride to the airport and there are 20 four-star hotels within a ten-minute walk. The city centre with its shopping arcades, theatres, galleries and museums is only around 500 metres away.
In addition to its unique location, the CCH offers a range of modern congress facilities – including award-winning technology, 23 rooms that can be flexibly arranged and provide seating for 12,500 in total, and a 7,000m² multi-functional exhibition hall right next to the conference area. All in all, the CCH has more than 10,000 square metres of exhibition space. Together, Hamburg Exhibition Centre and the CCH provide two highly professional venues for the trade fair and congress sectors, and they can be easily used in conjunction with each other thanks to their close proximity.
Around 280 events are held at the CCH every year. Forty large-scale events for a total of more than 240,000 participants have already been booked for the period up to 2016, including the World Lions Convention and the Protestant Church Conference in 2013.
