A port city bridging tradition and modernity

Hamburg is a city state in Germany with approximately 1.7 million inhabitants. The city’s port, the largest in Germany, and its location as the headquarters of countless big companies, such as Beiersdorf AG, mean that Hamburg is one of country’s most important industrial hubs.

Culture-lovers also get their money’s worth thanks to the city’s countless museums and more than 60 theatres.

In 2015, the Speicherstadt warehouse district and the neighbouring Kontorhausviertel were declared World Heritage sites by UNESCO.
