HafenCity

HafenCity combines tradition and modernity in a unique symbiosis. A true architectural and cultural delight! Attractions such as Miniatur Wunderland, the Elbphilharmonie and the Speicherstadt draw tourists in.

For centuries, the Port of Hamburg has shaped the development of the Hanseatic city. Shipyards and docks, terminals and ships from around the world are just as much as part of Hamburg as the Elbe, Alster and Jungfernstieg. The Sandtorkai was opened on 11 August 1866 as the most modern port of its time. After more than 100 years, HafenCity is now taking its place. Work began in 2003 and so far half of the buildings envisaged in the master plan have been completed.

Although it is still considered "the largest building site" in Europe, new life has arrived in HafenCity: besides the office and apartment buildings, you can linger in the many cafés and restaurants. What is equally interesting and remains the most famous construction in the HafenCity and therefore the city as a whole is the Elbphilharmonie. Guided tours are also available.
