The oldest immigrant in Hamburg: the “Old Swede”. Along the Hans-Leip shore lies a boulder weighing nearly 220 tonnes, the so-called “Old Swede”. It was found in 1999 by workers digging out a shipping channel, and got its name due to its ice-age migration from Scandinavia to the Elbe. The Old Swede is one of Germany’s largest ice-age boulders.

Historical representative of outstanding German civil engineering. Alter Elbtunnel

When the old Elbe Tunnel, also called St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel, opened in 1911, it was a technical sensation. Today, it is a nostalgic and lovingly tended piece of Hamburg history – and has already celebrated its 100th anniversary.
