Hamburg has nine official twin cities, including St. Petersburg, Shanghai and Chicago. Actually, Austin should also be on this list, because best relations between the Hanseatic city and the venue of the SXSW festival have existed for a long time.

Led by Hamburg Startups, a strong startup delegation from Elbe and Alster will travel to Texas again soon.
