Do yourself and your environment some good

Today, sustainability for us means thinking ahead for the future. Our guests should feel just as good as Hamburg residents. A conscious and deliberate approach to handling nature and the environment contributes to this. This also has positive results. In 2011, the city of Hamburg was declared the European Environmental Capital; even today it remains a pioneer in sustainable city development. The Hansa City has set itself the goal of reducing CO2 emissions by up to 80% by 2050 - an ambitious goal. The spirit of sustainability is especially palpable in the new city area of HafenCity and on the former site of the International Building Exhibition (IBA) in Wilhelmsburg. And if you want a different perspective, take a look at Hamburg from on high: by climbing the tower in the Hamburg Michel in the city centre, or from the 'Energieberg Georgswerder', you can discover the many green areas between the Alster, Elbe and Bille.
