Hamburg is a real pearl – with the Speicherstadt and Kontorhausviertel, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, countless rivers, canals and canals, it has a very special city flair. It is not for nothing that Germany’s second largest city is always at the top of the list in worldwide comparisons of quality of life. Nature in the surrounding countryside and on the waterfront, culture in the city: Harburg’s mountains, Elbe meadows, Elbe Philharmonic Hall and musical theatre are not the only things waiting for visitors who are looking for relaxation. One of the world’s largest transhipment ports and the international airport impressively demonstrate how a major logistics, transport and traffic hub creates the best connections. Oh yes, and a lot is also happening here for business, science and research: not only in the fields of aerospace engineering, over 75,000 students at 19 universities are preparing for their careers.
