Information about Hamburg

Relocation Service in HamburgLocated between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea on the Elbe, the city-state of Hamburg is the true international gateway of Germany, its seaport makes it a major transport hub in Northern Germany and in Europe. At the heart of the city and Hamburg's symbol, it has given it historic attractions such as the Reeperbahn, which developed as a sailors' pleasure paradise, or the famous Fish Market, or the historic Speicherstadt, the world's largest warehouse complex.  Hamburg’s nearly 2,500 bridges — the most in Europe — also have a special charm.

The closeness to water is probably what gives the 1,77m “Fischköpfe” - “fish heads”, as Hamburg residents are affectionately called – their famous cool-headedness and laid-back attitude. Hamburg is the second-largest city in Gemany and the sixth-largest in the EU. 30% of residents have a migrant background, originating from 180 countries. The city's population is steadily growing: around 73,000 newcomers make the city their new home every year.

Working in Hamburg

Hamburg is without a doubt a boom town. It has Germany's highest GDP, despite a few setbacks in the recent economic crisis. The city's most significant employer is the seaport, which ranks second only to Rotterdam in Europe and 9th worldwide. Hamburg is the third largest civilian aircraft center in the world after Seattle and Toulouse with Lufthansa Technik and Airbus Deutschland, the aircraft construction company. Other important economic sectors the media, IT, telecommunications, tourism and health. Of Germany´s 500 most profitable companies, 36 are in Hamburg, including well-known names such as Beiersdorf, Hapag Lloyd, Helm, Shell, Otto Versand, Panasonic and Tchibo.

HafenCity, Hamburg's whole new district and one of Europe's largest inner city development scheme – and where where the old port warehouses are being replaced with offices, hotels, shops, official buildings, and residential areas – will augment the inner city area by 40%, and create around 40,000 jobs.

Living in Hamburg

The range starts between €5.33 and €7.44/sq m for relatively simple housing in pre-1948 apartments, and goes up to €15.00/sq m for exclusive apartments in top locations.
