Use Schepens European Removals If You’re Moving to Hamburg

Hamburg has hit the top ten for the most liveable cities in the world – twice – over the past decade. Situated in the north of Germany, the city scored 100% on its infrastructure, and healthcare, and above 90% on arts, culture, stability and education. It’s a city of contrasts, at once one of the most affluent German cities, whilst also being home to the Reeperbahn, the country’s most infamous red light district, near the docks.

Around 4,000 expats live in Hamburg, enjoying the strong Anglo-German links that Hamburg maintains. It was occupied by UK troops at the end of the World War Two, and the relationship has flourished in the intervening years. There is – would you believe – a society of Scottish Country Dancers of Hamburg, and a Hamburger Cricket Society.

For anyone thinking of a move to this beautiful city, here are three of the neighbourhoods favoured by expats

1. Mitte 

The MOST fashionable area to live in Hamburg, as it’s slap bang in the middle of the city. Living in St.Pauli gives you access to the city’s dazzling array of clubs, restaurants, bars and music. It’s also a great place to experience the many annual events such as the Reeperbahn festival. If you like the sound of Mitte, you’ll need to organise accommodation early on as it’s challenging to find.

2. Altona

This is certainly the most popular area for expats. It started out as an independent city and even now it maintains a distinct identity. It’s full of green areas, enjoys numerous farmers’ markets and hosts an annual cultural festival called the ‘Altonale’. There’s great shopping, nightlife and restaurants – and it’s in a great location, on the right bank of the Elbe.

3. Hamburg-Nord

For those who welcome a more suburban existence, whilst enjoying the resources city life has to offer, Hamburg-Nord is the solution. The residential areas resemble ‘villages’ of urban life, punctuated with a plethora of green, well-maintained parks. The transport infrastructure is excellent (with the airport nearby), and it’s easy to access the countryside for walking and camping.
