Less than 13 miles from the heart of downtown Detroit, Hamtramck, Michigan is like a little United Nations where residents collectively speak more than 30 languages. 

The town’s pioneer residents were mostly German, followed by Poles, but recently Hamtramck has become a melting pot for immigrants from Yemen, Bangladesh, Bosnia, and Ukraine with a majority Islamic population.

Join Kathy Angerer, Hamtramck City Manager as she shares her passion for the multicultural two-square mile town, and cool things to do and see.
