As one of the main financial hubs in Europe, it is home and base for many influential commercial and industrial firms, venue of annual summits and international conferences, and has one of the oldest stock exchanges in the continent. Furthermore, the headquarters of two of the most important publications in Germany –Der Spiegel and Die Zeit– are located here. Even if you are travelling to Hamburg to attend an event at the CCH (Congress Centre Hamburg), there is plenty to explore after work: the City Hall, the Harbour Promenade, St. Michaelis Church, the zoo or the diverse quarters along River Elbe.
Travelling from Hamburg airport to the city centre is easy thanks to the regular services of line S1 of the S-Bahn urban railway system.
