According to the findings of the Economist’s Intelligence Unit, Hamburg is the 10th most livable city in the world. The organization ranked Hamburg in tenth place last year as well as this year.
Hamburg scored 95 overall out of total rating of 100. In terms of specific categories, Hamburg got 90 points for stability, 100 points for health care, 93.5 points for the environment and culture, 100 points for infrastructure and 91.7 points for education.
With the opening in January of Hamburg’s Elbphilharmonie, a global attraction which is considered one of the world’s most stunning concert halls, it’s not surprising that the port city gained as many points as it did under the culture category.
“Hamburg has momentum at the moment. The opening of the Elbphilharmonie has brought entrepreneurial spirit to the city,” chief executive Rolf Strittmatter of the Hamburg Business Development Corporation told New European Economy earlier in 2017.
