Why Choose Our Destination?

Cosmopolitan and vibrant, yet smart and eco-minded, Hamburg offers visitors a unique experience. Germany’s second largest city has long served Northern Europe as gateway to the world. Today it is at the height of its transformation into an exciting metropolis where modern life is merged with century-long tradition. Thanks to its rich Hanseatic legacy Hamburg has the business vibe as well as the infrastructure to empower innovation in technology and urban development. Like a kaleidoscope the city unfolds its many charms across a colourful spectrum of classic culture, contemporary art, dazzling entertainment, food for every taste and fashion from luxury to independent labels. Rising above the waves of the Elbe river, at the crossroads between UNESCO World Heritage Site Speicherstadt and the newly built HafenCity, the Elbphilharmonie has become symbolic of Hamburg’s forward-looking spirit. Plan your next event here – the Hamburg Convention Bureau will be glad to assist.

Local Attractions

Port and River Cruises

The River Elbe has always been a lifeline and major traffic route for Hamburg. It provides direct access to the North Sea about 100 kilometres away and has formed the basis for the development of Hamburg’s port. Huge container ships arrive in Hamburg with the rhythm of the tides and bring goods from overseas, the majority of which is distributed to Central Europe, Scandinavia and the Baltic States by shuttle boat, rail or road. Visitors to Hamburg can best experience the hustle and bustle of the port handling terminals on a traditional harbour boat trip or bus tour. Credit: / bcs Media

Maritime beauty meets lakeside charm

What distinguishes Hamburg from other waterfront cities is a lacework of waterways that shape most of its metropolitan area. Ships and bridges set the scene, starting from the harbour along numerous rivers and canals some of which flow into the two Alster lakes, presenting scenic views to be enjoyed anytime day or night.

Culture making waves in Hamburg

Culture from Hamburg hits the right notes – and they ring out far and wide. The North German city has a longstanding reputation as a leading centre for dance, music and theatre, with only New York and London beating it to the position of the world’s most successful city of musical theatre. It is not just the city’s many thrilling musical productions that are making waves, the Hamburg State Opera, Laeiszhalle, Thalia Theatre and Deutsches Schauspielhaus theatre also offer outstanding cultural experiences. Hamburg is pioneering new musical paths. Visible evidence comes in the form of the concert hall Elbphilharmonie – a cultural landmark for the city and a beacon for the world. Architecturally and acoustically brilliant, the venue will host top international performers from the worlds of classical, jazz, pop and world music. In addition to these world-class offerings for the ear, the treasures and exhibitions of the Metropolitan Region’s over 300 museums have plenty to delight and fascinate the eye.

UNESCO Speicherstadt

Historical landmark
The Speicherstadt is more than 100 years old and is considered the world’s largest contiguous warehouse complex. In 2015 it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Situated in the former free port, the red-brick building ensemble with its thick walls, copper roofs and blocks and tackles was built on oak piles between 1883 and 1888 and is among Hamburg’s main attractions. On an area that was once used for storing coffee, tea and other spices, visitors can now marvel at the Miniatur Wunderland, the world’s largest model railway, or experience spine-chilling tales of Klaus Störtebeker, the famous buccaneer, at the Hamburg Dungeon. The Speicherstadt’s spice museum provides insights into the history of the warehouse complex and the lives of stevedores at the time, while the adjacent wine cellar serves as a venue for parties. Restaurants, cafés and quaint historic warehouse floors offer unique event venues. Credit: / Andreas Vallbracht
