Through narrow waterways, under countless old and new bridges and past the Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall: on a trip through Hamburg’s old free port area, the contrast in the city’s architecture couldn’t be more apparent. The historic Speicherstadt district with its numerous warehouses for carpets, coffee and spices from all over the world enable a deep appreciation of the history of the Hanseatic city. And the modern face of the metropolis comes to light in the HafenCity, the contemporary residential and business district of Hamburg with the Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall. A short detour to the four-masted barque Peking rounds off the journey through time. Information: Due to repair work on the Nikolaisperrwerk, the route will be changed.
