is the gateway to the world
What springs to mind when one thinks of Hamburg: more bridges than Venice, hundreds of canals, a huge ocean-going port, the Speicherstadt district, the inner and outer Alster lakes, the nightlife in St. Pauli, the Elbphilharmonie concert hall, St. Michael’s church and much more.
Hamburg has always been a commercial centre thanks to its location and the Hamburg business guild’s many travels. The maritime economy still plays a key role. Today, however, the city is also home to the aviation and consumer goods industries. The service sector is focussed on insurance and banking, media and tourism. The oldest German chamber of commerce founded in 1665 has over 160,000 members, and 12 of the 100 largest German companies have their headquarters in Hamburg.
