Gateway to the world. The jewel of the north. The biggest sea port in Germany. It’s hard to describe Hamburg without using superlatives. This world city on the Elbe combines a global mindset with mercantile tradition. Over the last 25 years, the city’s appeal has been boosted even further by impressive urban development. With HafenCity, the biggest inner-city regeneration project in Europe, Hamburg is setting a high standard for the future of urban centres. On top of that, there are more bridges here than in Amsterdam and Venice put together – nearly 2,500 of them.
