Water gives life – people strive for proximity to water – and find this in Hamburg as nowhere else.
This city on the water is incomparable and of unique character. Almost 2.500 bridges – far more than in Amsterdam,
London and Venice combined – cross the innumerable watercourses between Elbe, Alster and Bille. Its maritime flair, clean air and Hanseatic openness to
the world make Hamburg the finest city in the world for many people. With the North Sea and the Baltic not far away, the Hamburg metropolitan region is
seen as one of Germany’s favourite vacation areas.
Hamburg has been renowned for its bold urban planning for over a century. Such striking architectural designs as
the Chilehaus dating from the 1920s or today’s HafenCity Hamburg also set new yardsticks for living and working in a big city.
