Known for it’s rich culture, countless cathedrals, booming trade, and developing industries, Hamburg is the center of Northern Germany. A city of water, a slow stroll down the banks of the Elbe and Alster rivers provides a lesson in Hamburg’s history and economy by day and breathtaking panoramas of the city by night. Celebrating the past and with a clear vision of the future, Hamburg is bustling with emerging industry, ongoing renovation, and new developments.

“Studying Abroad is a wonderful idea for college students to do. I am so happy that I decided to go to Hamburg, Germany. Staying there for six weeks was great and I learned a lot. Working with the Germans at ElitePartner during my internship was one of the most significant things I have ever done.”
