ISC partner’s program – Living – Loving – Hamburg!

What is so special about Hamburg? Wind and water are the two determining elements of this harbour town: Enjoy a sunny day on the bank of the “Außenalster” – with a view on swans, sailing boats and magnificent buildings. On a stormy day the landing bridges can be quite exciting when tug boats and large container vessels are fighting the waves.

Hamburg is a city full of opposites. On the one hand, the colourful trendy district of St. Pauli with the Reeperbahn. On the other hand the honourable Blankenese with its countless villas and romantic views from the hillside towards the river “Elbe”.

When compiling the partner program we tried to meet the diversity of Hamburg – wait and see!
