Hamburg Welcome Tour – Hamburg Welcome Portal

The Hamburg Welcome Center invites you in May to an exciting walk through selected parts in the HafenCity Hamburg complex, where on a total area of 157 hectares a new district is arising, setting new standards across Europe. We will start in the pavilion of sustainability OSAKA 9, directly at the “Magdeburger Hafen”. Here our English speaking tour guide will inform us in a very descriptive way about the diverse fields of action in a sustainable urban development.

This is followed by an extensive and expertly guided walk, again presented in the English language, through various central and eastern areas of the HafenCity. During our tour we will also make a stop at the 13 meters high View Point Tower, where we can enjoy a magnificent 360 degree panorama!

We look forward to share another part of Hamburg with you!
