Often described as the “gateway to the world”, the free and hanseatic city of Hamburg is one of the most attractive cities of Germany. Being both, a large city and a federal state (with more than 3.5 mill. inhabitants), Hamburg represents the prosperity of the northern regions.

Its vitality, its colourful districts and its multiculturalism originate from a long maritime past that turned Hamburg into an International trade centre. The Speicherstadt, an ancient brick-built warehouse complex and nowadays the historical centre of the hard-working port district, reminds of former glory and fame. You find there an authentic hanseatic setting where one can still smell the roasted coffee and exotic spices. St. Pauli and its Reeperbahn are known in the whole world, and not just because here, the Beatles had their break through, namely in the “Starclub” in 1962.


Hamburg offers a particularly high quality of live: A lot of green spaces and recreational areas, the biggest average living space of all major cities worldwide, a wide range of cultural events (especially musicals and art exhibitions) and an aquaphil and philanthropic infrastructure with more bridges than Amsterdam and Venice put together.

Conference Venue
