The harbor of Hamburg

The historical port area of Hamburg is on the rise these days. The district of Speicherstadt is once more buzzing with people and cranes. Towering over it all is the crown jewel Elbphilharmonie, inaugurated in 2017.

HafenCity is an exciting development project which aims to enlarge the city center by roughly 40%. The old warehouses of the industrial harbor are being replaced by modern housing and open spaces. for In only five years time, 12 000 residents are expected to live among the canals.

It is said that Hamburg has more bridges than London, Amsterdam and Venice combined.

As I walked along the small bridges a few days ago, I made a mental note to return within ten years to see what has become of the district.
