With the river Elbe as its major artery and Germany’s largest and most modern German seaport, Hamburg offers a potent mix of high maritime quality of life and a powerhouse economy. The more than 1,000-year-old Port of Hamburg is not only a tourist highlight, but also the heart of Northern Europe's most important trade and economic hub, which focuses primarily on the logistics, aviation, renewable energies and life sciences clusters.

In addition to global players such as Airbus and Beiersdorf, young entrepreneurs also appreciate this environment. Hamburg is one of the hotspots of the German start-up scene. And as the smartest city in the country, it is at the top of the list of locations for many companies.

HAMBURG: BETWEEN maritime pearls AND ECONOMIC ingenuity

Hamburg Maritime Perle Hamburg Maritime Perle
Ships’ horns, Elbe beaches, theatre, musicals, trendy neighbourhoods, stepping-off points to the world – it is not for nothing that Hamburg repeatedly appears at the top of global rankings of liveability. With a positive atmosphere, a casual and unhurried lifestyle and lots of greenery, Hamburg attracts people from all over the world. The major element of the city is its water features. From the numerous harbour basins with their canals to the Outer Alster – if you want to sail, stroll or drift comfortably, you will definitely find the right place. Did you know that Hamburg has more bridges than Venice? The new flagship of the city’s maritime way of life is the modern and still growing HafenCity, which is equally popular with Hamburg’s citizens as well as visitors and investors.

Hamburg is considered the “smartest” city in Germany. The digitalization of cities, businesses and buildings is progressing particularly dynamically here. Above all, the SmartPort, in which all processes now run digitally and which has thus taken on a pioneering role worldwide. In addition, the city is investing in the digital expansion of the airport, the 5G network, supporting companies in digitalization and creating optimum conditions for tech start-ups. Hamburg is also focussing on innovation in real estate. Germany's first two-storey logistics property will soon be built in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg. And the EDGE ElbSide is just one example of smart, sustainable and energy-efficient office properties that are being built primarily in HafenCity.

Hamburg Residential Market 2021

As a gateway to the world and a city on the water, Hamburg combines an urban lifestyle along with plenty of nature. In times of change, the northern metropolis on the banks of the Elbe is also reinventing itself, but never forgetting its roots as a traditional port and merchant city.
