It is the first stop in Germany for the open-air gallery "FrauenFreiluftGalerie Hamburg" on the subject of women's work in the port. The paintings are dedicated to real women's power in all its facets.

Their motifs tell the viewer about the female economic power in the port of Hamburg and its change from 1900 to the present. The FrauenFreiluftGalerie stretches along the northern bank of the Elbe from Fischmarkt to Övelgönne and is accessible around the clock, barrier-free and free of charge.

14 large-format paintings on the banks of the Elbe

As a round-the-clock gallery, it is unique in Hamburg: 14 large-format paintings on the banks of the Elbe at the moment, tendency: growing. Glimpses into the reality of work, arousing curiosity for the port, traditionally considered a "male domain", is one of the aims here. Female painters from Hamburg, Argentina, New York, London make the change artistically visible. This is based on interviews with the port women and research by cultural historians.

A tour of the open-air gallery can be undertaken on your own or as an explanatory walk. The autonomous non-profit project offers walks, bicycle tours, films and lectures.
