InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Hamburg

Hello to all Americans in Hamburg! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Hamburg? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Hamburg which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Hamburg offers a top quality of life. The Freie Hansestadt is a port city known for its long trading history with the historical Speicherstadt and Germany’s largest sea port, but also for its infamous Reeperbahn, numerous theater and musical venues, the Elbphilharmonie concert hall, and much more! With the comprehensive public transportation network of buses, underground lines (U-Bahn), suburban trains (S-Bahn), and ferries coordinated by the HVV, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in one of Hamburg’s outer quarters, which are just a short commute away from Hamburg’s center.

Although Hamburg has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Hamburg, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.
