Dear Alumnae, dear Alumni, dear Friends,

Hamburg, the second largest city in Germany, was a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, a city-state, and is one of the 16 states of Germany. Located on the river Elbe, it is a major port a global hub for service, media, and logistics industries, housing international companies like Airbus, Beiersdorf and Unilever. Germany’s Spiegel magazine and the International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea are based in Hamburg. The city has also been an important financial centre for centuries and is the seat of Germany's oldest stock exchange and the world’s second oldest bank, Berenberg Bank.
