Spatial Distribution of Tourism in Hamburg


Tourism in Hamburg has been substantially and continuously growing during the last decade. The city has reached position ten among the most popular European city destinations last year with more than 10 million overnight stays. And still further tourist attractions like the new concert hall 'Elbphilharmonie', two additional musical theatre venues and even a cable car over the river Elbe are projected or under construction. At the same time loads of new hotels are opening in almost any location close to the city center.

But there is no big picture that documents the spatial distribution of tourists in Hamburg at this time. As well as there is no 'masterplan' for regulating the further growth in tourism that most likely is going to come. This marks the starting point for the mapping tourism project. It's goal is to provide easily accessible information about the spatial dimension of tourism in Hamburg.
