Emigrant Museum BallinStadt

The emigrant museum BallinStadt in Hamburg opens its doors and shows in its exhibition the emigration history from four epochs.

Why should you visit the Emigration Museum in Hamburg during your stay in the Hanseatic City? Since its opening in 2007, it has rightly been one of the city's most popular museums. The core of the exhibition are the three replica emigrant halls of Ballinstadt, named after Albert Ballin. At the beginning of the 20th century he was managing director of the shipping company HAPAG and as such he was very interested in the millions of emigrants who wanted to start from here into the New World and hopefully into a better life. Since the housing situation in the city had become untenable, in 1901 he had the Ballinstadt built on the Elbe island of Veddel, which became a true city in the city with a church, dining rooms, dormitories and a military hospital. For about 5 million European emigrants, Hamburg was the "gateway to the world" between 1850 and 1939. The BallinStadt Emigration Museum is dedicated to these emigrants.

CITY AREA PORTRAIT Wilhelmsburg & Veddel

The Elbe Island of Wilhelmsburg is embedded between the southern and northern Elbe. It impresses visitors with a mixture of industrial charm and bustling life with multicultural flair. With its historic buildings, cafés and shops, the Wilhelmsburg Reiherstieg area is especially popular. It is even called "Little Berlin" due to its transformation in recent years. And then there is the neighbouring island of Veddel, which also has much to offer.
