HafenCity is one of the most exciting urban projects in Europe. As envisioned in the master plan of 2000, Hamburg's old warehouse district is transforming into a vibrant area featuring fascinating architecture and brimming with restaurants, bars and museums.

Perfect for a picturesque break, the Magellan Terraces is a futuristic park on the waterfront. In the summer, it's regularly host to outdoor events and concerts.
Don't let its dry-sounding name throw you off. The German Customs Museum is actually a thrilling experience, charting Hamburg's long and wild history of illegal smuggling.
Though still under construction, this modernist concert hall built atop an old warehouse, designed by world-famous architects Herzog & de Meuron, is a wonder to behold.
As one of the HafenCity's greatest pleasures is simply walking around and admiring the incredible architecture and views across the water, it's best to visit on a sunny day. Considering Hamburg's famously capricious weather, your best bet is during the summer months.

What People Are Saying About HafenCity
Not too difficult tour,although it can be tiring for people who do not have regular physical activity. But certainly this is the very best way to get to know the city in the short time. Lisa is fabulous guide
The guides were good and we would recommend to everyone to get off at the stop for the miniature wonderland. It is the most fascinating place we have seen that has been made by man. Loved it.
We thoroughly enjoyed our day on the hop-on hop-off bus in Hamburg and found that we could see much more of the city than we would have under our own steam. It also helped to have an English commentary and we found out quite of lot of information about Hamburg than we previously knew.
