LOCATION OF THE HAMBURG INNOVATION PORT
The Harburg inland port
Starting with the foundation of the Hamburg University of Technology in 1978 and the establishment of the Microelectronics Application Center MAZ in 1990, the Harburg inland port has developed over the last 25 years from an industrial wasteland into a decisive technology hub in the south of Hamburg with a total area of 45 hectares. One of the reasons are the excellent transport links: The A1 and A7 highways can be reached in just a few minutes, the Harburg intercity train station and the Harburg Rathaus suburban train stop are within walking distance, and Hamburg Airport can be reached in just 25 minutes by car. A bus line every 10 minutes stops right outside the front door.
