Neighbourhood profile: Hamburg-Mitte
Hamburg-Mitte, Hamburg's most central district, crosses the city area transversely from west to east. It includes not only Hamburg's inner city, but also a large part of the famous Hamburg harbour, the eastern part of the city as well as the district of Finkenwerder on the outskirts. The three North Sea islands belonging to Neuwerk, which are 120 kilometres away and lie just off Cuxhaven in the Elbe estuary, are also under the jurisdiction of Hamburg-Mitte. A total of 19 districts belong to the borough. In contrast to many other districts that used to form independent localities and were only later annexed to the city area, most areas in Hamburg's Mitte district have been part of the city for many centuries. The district is home to numerous sights and is therefore a popular attraction for tourists visiting the metropolis on the Elbe. In 2010, it was also awarded the title "Place of Diversity" by the federal government, which is given to regions that live a distinct cultural diversity. A large proportion of the inhabitants, almost 50%, have a migration background.
