Create an itinerary including HafenCity
HafenCity is the largest rebuilding project in Europe at 2.2 sq km (.85 square mi). Set for completion between 2020 and 2030, the project involves converting old port warehouses into offices, hotels, shops, official buildings, and residential areas. Visitors who enjoy city planning and innovative architecture can take a guided tour now via bike or foot. You'll see the International Maritime Museum of Hamburg, the Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall, and the Science Center. A change in European Union laws lessened this area's importance as a seaport, leading to the repurposing. Work out when and for how long to visit HafenCity and other Hamburg attractions using our handy Hamburg trip itinerary builder app.

  • When this project is complete it will have the same visual impact Canary Wharf has on the London skyline but on a larger scale !! Well worth a visit,

  • This harbor part of town was destroyed in wartime bombing and has been rebuilt. Some interesting architecture here, and the water adds to the design. And a few places to eat. Underwhelming.
