Rent Office Space in Hamburg: Germany’s Port City
The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, as it is officially known, is the second largest city in Germany and a highly attractive business location for local and international companies alike.
With its population of almost 1.9 million people, the city is one of the most important trading and economic centers in Northern Europe, thanks to its invaluable deep-sea container port – the second largest in Euorpe. Hamburg is one of the world’s leading locations for trade and logistics, and has often been referred to as a « gateway to the world » by the many import and export companies representing the sector in the city’s metropolitan area.
However it doesn’t stop there. Approximately 35,000 global enterprises are also represented in Hamburg in areas such as banking, insurance, civil aviation and media.
Competitive business environment across a range of sectors
Hamburg is also one of the most competitive regions in Germany and in Europe. The strong economic conditions not only make Hamburg a favorable business location, but create a positive impact on the entire area of northern Germany, by providing three-quarters of the jobs around Hamburg.
The Mönckebergstrasse, the Neuer Wall and the Jungfernstieg, as well as traditional quarters of the city such as St. Georg or the Schanzenviertel, are close to the city center and are visited by many travellers each year.
Although trade and logistics dominate Hamburg’s success, the city has a strong retail services sector and has also become an important location for innovative software, gaming and online companies.
According to the KfW Entrepreneurship Monitor 2019, Hamburg has the third highest start-up rate in Germany and offers a variety of inspiring and affordable office spaces in numerous business centers across the metropolitan area.
