All for one: the Hamburg Metropolitan Region in focus

It would be impossible for one company to market the city of Hamburg with more than five million inhabitants, countless businesses, diverse leisure and cultural offers, internationally reputed educational institutions and numerous other assets. This task can only be accomplished with strong partners who are pulling together to make it work.

Together as a metropolitan region

Hamburg is Germany's second largest metropolitan region.

20 administrative districts and urban municipalities in the Hamburg Metropolitan Region are partners of the Hamburg Marketing GmbH. They are important strategic partners in successfully marketing the Hamburg Metropolitan Region, one of the strongest regions in Germany and Europe. The four federal states of Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein are part of this metropolitan region, which covers a total of 28,500 square kilometres – a highly attractive economic area for businesses from Germany and abroad. Moreover, the Hamburg Metropolitan Region offers its guests numerous enticing tourism destinations and its residents a high quality of life.
