Economically and culturally, Hamburg is the centre of all Northern Germany. 3,5 million people live in the metropolitan region of Hamburg - for them, Hamburg is a shopping and cultural metropolis. With 755 square kilometres, the city area is seven times larger than Paris and two and a half times larger than London. As a result, Hamburg's living and housing standards are particularly high. With 30 square metres of living space per person, Hamburg has the biggest average living space of all major cities in the world.
