With theeCulture cloud, Hamburg developed an application that allows citizens to access Hamburg’s rich cultural content anywhere at any time. Cultural institutions, associations, artists, and other agents of Hamburg’s creative scenes are invited to present their works and collections the city’s new central platform and database, and to make it available to all interested in culture. With the new service, the the heritage of collections, libraries, image banks, and video archives with to exhibition space or premises accessible to the general public can thus also be enjoyed. Access to Hamburg’s major cultural institutions and many cultural highlights will also be facilitated by a specially developed culture points app.
