Hamburg lies in an attractive geographical location, and combines the traditional and the modern in innovative ways. The city is a founding member of the Hanseatic League and has been providing extensive overseas trade since as early as 1241. Since that time, Hamburg has grown to be Germany's second largest city and is famous for having the largest seaport in the country today. The Hanseatic city is an attractive location for commerce and tourism thanks to its port and its position by the Elbe and Alster rivers.
With the introduction of newspapers, publishing companies, TV broadcasters and various agencies, Hamburg has established itself as one of the most important media centres in Germany. With over 60 small and large theatres and more than 60 museums, culture also plays an important role in the Hanseatic city. Hamburg's internationally renowned theatres and concert halls have made its musical scene the third largest in the world.
You can reach us via the underground lines U1 and U2, as well as the S-Bahn (suburban train) lines S1 and S3, getting off at "Jungfernstieg" in both cases. Take the exit marked "Alsterarkaden" – this leads to the start of the Neuer Wall, a major shopping street. In a few metres, you will find the KERN Hamburg branch on the left-hand side.
From the north:
Take the A7 from the north, then exit at Stellingen and take the B4 to the Innenstadt (city centre).
Take the A1/A255 from the south; the A255 then merges onto the B75/B4.
Take the B4 and drive to the city centre via Bundesstraße 4 (Willy-Brandt-Straße). Parking facilities are not available directly by Neuer Wall. There are, however, various car parks available nearby, for example the Hanseviertel, Alsterhaus and Europa-Passage car parks.
