Hamburg is one of the most attractive business locations in Northern Europe.
Although its economy is dominated by the services sector, Hamburg is also an important industrial centre and its port has one of the world’s largest container terminals.
In addition to the logistics related business sectors expected of a vibrant port city, Hamburg is also host to a number of innovative growth sectors such as life sciences, aerospace, media and IT. Renewable energy and trade with Asia, especially China, are also important commercial activities. The Hamburg Metropolitan Region has a centuries sold tradition of overseas trade, and its location, infrastructure and comprehensive range of logistics services have made it a central commercial hub for northern Europe. By any measure, Hamburg is among the most interesting German markets for commercial real estate investment.
