- City Walks
A guided tour of the World Heritage Site of the warehouse district and following by Hamburg's youngest district, HafenCity is something special! Once this interplay between land and water, between the historical scenes on the one hand, and modern, futuristic buildings on the other hand. Add to this the new Elbe Philharmonic Hall, which now outshines everything.
Pride the citizens of Hamburg are on their memory city, which contributed to the prosperity of its citizens for many years. But 130 years ago, when the first memory emerged this greatest historical warehouse complex in Europe, which was a different place: the memories had to give a medieval old quarter with its nearly 26,000 residents. Because Hamburg was the customs territory of the German Reich, Senate and Parliament were forced to set up a free port. Right in the middle was the residential area, the so was the port.
Million tons of cocoa and coffee, fine carpets, expensive spices and all kinds of general cargo were stored here, refined and sorted. Made up of waterways and canals to which the so-called barges-Schupser brought created the goods are in this delightful area today especially many museums and cafes.
In former port areas, however, arises HafenCity. Long derided as a district for the rich and famous - even by a former mayor described as a "cube cough in the water," the urban planning concept has now improved significantly. Because in addition to sexy, designed by star architect buildings, including green areas and particularly beautiful playgrounds are now emerging. There are also a number of enchanting cafes and the new splendor of the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, so that it seems almost forgotten that the construction costs were still a little on the seams.
During our tour, in which also the laughter and the fun will not come up short, we make our own image.
