Hamburg HafenCity

The Hamburg HafenCity is an example of urban redevelopment carried out in modern times, in a very particular situation: the ancient port that runs along the Elbe river. The greatest contemporary architects have ventured into creating different architectural types, the original buildings have been converted into theaters, art galleries and modern offices.

Crossing HafenCity was like visiting an exhibition of urban planning and modern architecture where you can also see original solutions for the position of the place that often floods during the high tides.

The tour of the port of Hamburg by boat, lasting over an hour was a unique experience. Crossing one of the largest ports in the world, has allowed us to see what from the ground one can not even remotely imagine what constitutes a port of such importance. An extraordinary number of ships, tugboats, containers, cranes and a whole series of huge loading and unloading equipment.
