Hamburg – “A ripe property location for investors”

Overview
Market trends & outlook

Hamburg, with a population of 1.79 million people (4.3 million including the metropolitan area), is Germany's second largest city. Hamburg, a city-state of its own, is the cultural and commercial hub of Northern Germany, achieving the second highest GDP per capita among German cities.

Being home to the largest seaport in Germany, many global businesses are located in Hamburg, positioning itself as a new global hub for life science, media and technology, in particular for the aviation and logistics industry.

The transformation of Hamburg into an international hub is well-reflected in the total number of people with a migrant background, which accounts for 34% of the total population. 631,246 foreign nationals come from more than 180 different countries.
