Talk of the town

Why Hamburg locals love their home.

Hamburg is loud, colourful and highly diverse! In our series of interviews, Hamburg originals tell you what makes the city especially liveable for them. Take a look now!

Anne Carls - Owner of Via Stella

"I think it's great that Hamburg is a port city. It brings cosmopolitanism and this special mixture of cultures - and has done so for centuries."

Hubert Neubacher - Owner of Barkassen-Meyer

"You can feel the wide world everywhere and still find quiet corners if you want to retreat. You can experience a big city feeling like a village. If that's what you want."

Rita Strate - CEO KomponistenQuartier Hamburg

"I think Hamburg is the most beautiful city from from the water side! Rent a boat, paddle through the canals, experience nature and glide through the water."

Tjorven Melletat - Actress

"There are a lot of great theaters in Hamburg. The Deutsches Schauspielhaus, for example, is beautiful on the inside. I like being there."

André Frahm - Co-owner of Michelle Records

"What I love about Hamburg is the fresh air and even the typical Hamburg summer!"

Petra Ahrens - St. Pauli-Fan

"What I love about Hamburg are the open-minded people, the Alster and the Elbe. I like the cityscape and of course FC St. Pauli."

Ingrid Osthues - Owner of Ernst Brendler

"Labskaus is a part of Hamburg. Just like a little bit of rain."

Reinhard Otto - Chairman Stadtpark Verein

"The diversity and the water, but also a walk in the woods belong to Hamburg."

Marion Göttsche - Owner of Veddeler Fischgaststätte

"The perfect way to explore Hamburg? Climb the Michel, from there to the Portuguese Quarter and then down to the harbour. This is a pleasure."

Alexandra Luetkens - Film Funding Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein

"Großstadtrevier - Hamburg at its most!"

Dagmar Prüter - Cashier at EDEKA Niemerszein

"What Hamburg could improve? Essentially, there is nothing there. I love Hamburg the way it is."

Marcel Meyer-Landgrebe - Stage Theater Neue Flora

"I like that Hamburg is a green city!"
