Working at the RWE location in Hamburg
The new office in Hamburg has a lot to offer. The old postal customs office, built in 1920, was completely gutted and renovated in 2010. Today it is a modern office building with a roof terrace and a unique piazza with coach house. Good to know: the building is a listed building, so you will find the historical walls combined with modern elements everywhere in the building. A bicycle area with showers and changing rooms in the basement awaits cyclists and sporty employees. If you are a coffee lover, your heart is surely looking forward to professionally brewed coffee specialities.
It is probably even more important for you to know who you will be working with.
A good location and centrality are important to you? Planten & Blomen, the Jungfernstieg and the Outer Alster are just around the corner. The Gänsemarkt can be reached in three minutes, the HVV is only a two-minute walk away and the airport can be reached in 30 minutes by car. In other words: it can hardly be more central.
Living and working in Hamburg
Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany and the third largest German-speaking city in Europe (after Berlin and Vienna) and is of course worldwide known for its flair, culture, architecture and its port. As a Hanseatic city, Hamburg has an exciting history of seafaring and trade. In any case, Hamburg is a city that has a lot to offer.
The proximity to the North and Baltic Seas also makes the city very interesting for companies active in the field of renewable energies. Hamburg is now Europe’s wind capital and one of the most important centers for renewable energy in Germany. The relatively young industry is growing more and more every year. So if you're looking for a job in this area, you've come to the right place at RWE Renewables.

Hamburg is mobile
Everyone can do it by foot, by bike or by public transport but just a few of us can take a harbour ferry to travel from one location to another. But probably the combination of all of these possibilities makes it so easy to be out and about in Hamburg.
As it is typical for a large city, the transport network is very well developed. It is operated by the Hamburger Verkehrsbund (short: hvv). Did you know that the Hamburg Senate has set itself the goal that by 2030 everyone should only need 5 minutes to get to the next public transport service? S-Bahn, U-Bahn or the bus are always accessible.
And you only need about 1 hour and 43 minutes by ICE to travel the route from Hamburg to Berlin with a top speed of up to 230 km/h. There even is a ICE-fanpage for this route, which we don't want to withhold from you, even though it is only available in German. We gurantee you: You'll certainly need longer when you take your own car. Even if it can drive that fast. 😉 In addition, from 2024 Deutsche Bahn will be running on electricity from our Amrumbank West offshore wind farm. Isn't that a good reason for taking the train more often?!
Shopping and nightlife in Hamburg
There is always something going on in Hamburg. So people living in Hamburg are spoiled when it comes to shopping, entertainment and going out.
The day can start with a shopping tour in the city center or the famous Mönckebergstraße, in the afternoon you can visit one of the numerous museums or sights, such as the Speicherstadt. Then you can go to one of the many restaurants and continue in the evening on the Reeperbahn, one of the most famous streets in Germany. And if you still have enough energy (hats off!), you can go to the fish market to buy a delicious fish sandwich in the (very early) morning.
