Dear Sir or Madam,

Hamburg is Germany’s most international city: for centuries, local merchants have established business links all over the world. This has shaped our city and its inhabitants – Hamburg’s openness to the world is something that visitors, businesspeople and patients from abroad will sense immediately.  Our major international port is our gateway to the world, and water is also a central element in Hamburg’s cityscape: the Alster Lake with its sailing boats in the heart of the city, the River Elbe with its huge container ships, and the new HafenCity all lend Hamburg a fascinating maritime flair. Hamburg combines tourist highlights with internationally renowned medical care. The top-class medical research carried out here gives rise to innovative and non-invasive treatment methods, particularly for young patients. One of Germany’s most modern centres of paediatric medicine, the recently-completed paediatric clinic at University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf will provide special care for children and young adults suffering from serious and rare conditions. The "Herzbrücke" project at Hamburg’s Albertinen-Krankenhaus underlines Hamburg’s commitment to international children’s health. Whether you travel to Hamburg as a visitor or a patient, and whether you come with or without your family – we will give you a very warm welcome!
