Take in the spirit of Hamburg's merchants, who flock even today to the Speicherstadt, and experience modern architecture in the HafenCity. Miniature wonderland, the Hamburg Dungeon, Elbe Philharmonic Hall and cruise ships are all at home in this area.
What to Expect
Immerse yourself in the contrasting world of Hamburg, with both its historic Speicherstadt and its new, modern HafenCity.
Although the houses of the Speicherstadt were designed by different architects, they present nevertheless a harmonic bigger picture, completed by single buildings with exposed elements. The Speicherstadt was built not aiming not at beauty but convenience.
Head over to the HafenCity with its modern, sophisticated architecture that has also spawned impressive buildings. Walk among these interesting buildings and enjoy the maritime flair. The Elbe Philharmonic Hall lies at the end of the HafenCity and Speicherstadt. This exciting and controversial project in Hamburg's HafenCity is an impressive building that began construction in 2007.
