Berlin City

As the political centre of the most powerful and populous member state of the European Union, Berlin is an internationally important address for representatives from politics, business and associations.

Centrally located in the European Economic Area, Berlin is at the crossroads of the high-growth markets of Central and Eastern Europe. Flight times to Eastern Europe and Asia are one hour shorter than from established hubs in the west of the continent. The high-quality range of flight connections is of great importance for the future viability of the capital region. Berlin’s Schönefeld and Tegel airports offer companies the opportunity to enter and tap into new markets. In terms of passenger numbers, Berlin is already the third largest air hub in Germany. The catchment area of the capital region is home to 10 million people.

The economic landscape of the capital is diverse and characterized by traditional industrial enterprises, a strong medium-sized business sector and a dynamic service sector as well as innovative high-tech companies and start-ups. In addition, Berlin is an important centre for the creative industry and an important media location.

In addition, the region is characterized by world-renowned cultural highlights. Theatres, opera houses, museums and Brandenburg’s castles attract tourists from all over the world to Berlin and Brandenburg every year. Overnight stays in Berlin-Brandenburg have been rising above average for years.
