General information

The Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany with its 1.7 million inhabitants. With 755 square kilometers, the city area is seven times bigger than Paris and two and a half times bigger than London. As a result, Hamburg's living and housing standards are particularly high. As much as 14% of the city area is made up of green spaces and recreational areas. Hamburg has 2,302 bridges - more than Venice and Amsterdam combined. With over 90 consulates, Hamburg is second only to New York City in the world. As a trade centre, Hamburg has always been outward-looking, and this has shaped the mentality of the inhabitants of Hamburg. Hamburg's facilities range from the Kunsthalle Art Museum and the State Opera to music clubs on the Reeperbahn. Hamburg boasts 31 theatres, six music halls, ten cabarets and 50 state and private museums. Of the 4,000 restaurants, 2,400 offer foreign cuisine. The banks of the Elbe and the Alster rivers are ideal for a stroll. The port sight-seeing trips are impressive and they offer a special perspective on the panorama of Hamburg.

The HafenCity University Hamburg (HCU), founded in 2006, is a University dedicated for architecture and metropolis development. HCU possesses the whole bandwidth of academic methods and competences, including the natural and technical sciences, the creative-artistic sciences, the humanities and social sciences. It joins all disciplines which are necessary for these topics under one umbrella, namely Architecture, Civil Engineering, Geomatics, and Urban Planning. This unique constellation is used for inter- and transdisciplinarity in studies and research. The Department of Geomatics is hosting this event.
