Sustainable tourism in Hamburg

For Hamburg, sustainability is an issue close to our hearts - as a travel destination, for conferences and meetings, and in Hamburg Tourismus GmbH as an organisation. Together with many partners in the city, we are committed to making tourism more sustainable and fit for the future.

Global Destination Sustainability Movement

We have been part of the Global Destination Sustainability Movement since 2023. More than 100 city destinations worldwide are part of the network and are assessed annually in the only global index for sustainable city tourism. The index and the exchange with the destinations help us to continuously improve our own sustainability measures.
