Hamburg, the Gateway to the World

There are good reasons why the green city on the river is said to be one of the most beautiful cities in Germany. Whether Elbe, Alster, HafenCity (PortCity), Speicherstadt (Storehouse City), Fish Market or Reeperbahn – something new can be discovered, experienced and marveled at every day. With 1.8 million inhabitants, Hamburg is the second biggest city in Germany and it offers singular features to its guests: Arts and culture at its finest, worldwide successful musicals, superior and entertaining theatre, a great variety of hotels, excellent restaurants, exquisite shopping possibilities, exciting night life and loads of historical landmarks that were left by the 1200 years old history of the city. Hamburg is young, modern, friendly and open to the world – and a city full of contrasts at the same time. On the one hand, the colourful and simultaneously poorest quarter of the city, St. Pauli with its Reeperbahn, the most sinful mile in the world. On the other hand the rich and tidy quarter Blankenese with its numerous villas and romantic-beautiful views from the Elbhang and the lower beaches of the river Elbe. Each corner of Hamburg looks different but nevertheless everything joins together harmonically. And in the Port of Hamburg, in the heart of the city, ships from all over the world land. A selection of interesting visits and tours will be presented to delegates in the frame of the social programme.
