HafenCity, Hamburg

4.3
#2 of 8 in Neighborhoods in Hamburg
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.
