Hamburg -A proud port in northern Germany
Hamburg, gateway to the world. From the river Elbe, Alster lake and HafenCity to the warehouse district, fish market and Reeperbahn – every day there's something new to discover. Hamburg is modern and cosmopolitan, elegant and chic – a city full of contrasts. Each part of the city has a different look and a different feel and yet everything blends together harmoniously – from wild St. Pauli and the Reeperbahn, the world's most decadent mile, to the well-heeled Blankenese district with its luxury mansions.
Hamburg's city centre, meanwhile, is the only one in Germany situated on the shores of a lake, the Alster. The Outer Alster, the larger part of the lake at 160 hectares, is a paradise for sailors and rowers.
For many, the old town is Hamburg's main attraction. It takes visitors back to the time when rich merchants made their fortune with coffee, tea and spices. The area is also a host of excellent restaurants and bars – the perfect setting to reminisce about the good old days.
Congress Center Hamburg - CCH
The CCH is one of the most advanced conference centres in Europe, in an ideal location at the heart of Hamburg. It hosts more than 350 different events each year.

walk to the port, to Lake Alster or the Reeperbahn. CCH is located in Planten und Blomen, an oasis of park landscape in the middle of Hamburg.
