Hanseatic city of Hamburg: your Coworking h(e)aven
With a population of more than 1.8 million, the Hanseatic City of Hamburg is Germany’s second-largest. Despite its size, it was among the top 20 most livable cities in the world, according to the 2019 Mercer “Quality of Living City Ranking.” But it is also attractive as a business location. In fact, the Chamber of Commerce report “Hamburg Economic Figures” attests that the port city contributes a full 3.6% of Germany’s economic output. Between 2000 and 2016, the report continues, performance increased by a significant 44.4% in gross value added.
The massive port on the Elbe furthers Hamburg as an economic power, and it is impossible to imagine Hamburg without international foreign trade. Nevertheless, about 45% of the workforce belongs to the service industry, and digital media and video games, in particular, have established themselves as mainstay industries.
The fact that the metropolis, with its many trendy neighborhoods, is also a start-up stronghold is well known – even during the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, 218 new start-ups call Hamburg home, which puts the city behind only Berlin and Munich in a national comparison. Here you will meet media people, creatives, founders, and business representatives in multiple industries and in companies of all sizes.
The port city on the Elbe is an irresistible business location
Hamburg is equally well positioned in terms of tourism. Locations such as Monckebergstrasse, Neuer Wall, and Jungfernstieg offer superb retail spaces and attract thousands of visitors every year. The same applies to traditional districts near the city center such as St. Georg, St. Pauli, and the Schanzenviertel. Attractions such as the fish market, the Reeperbahn, the Landungsbrucken, the Hamburg Michel, the “Miniaturwunderland,” and the Elbphilharmonie all play a part in making Hamburg one of the country’s tourist magnets.
It goes without saying: All these facets make Hamburg a sought-after place to live and work.
