Business Development Corporation co-ordinates civic contacts
Not only the locals, but also many national and international investors and companies regard Hamburg as Germany’s most beautiful city. The great diversity of urban scenes, and waterfront locations with high identification power create spaces for a variety of needs. Genuinely international and cosmopolitan, Hamburg is the cradle of creativity, with a climate unique in Germany. By developing new locations, particularly at HafenCity, Altona’s (new) centre, or Harburg’s Inner Port, Hamburg further expands this position.
