Hafen City, Hamburg: 6 reviews and 18 photos
A new district of Hamburg has emerged from the death of the free port area. In the modern era of the EU the free port became less and less important, and the whole area was turned over for redevelopment. Money poured in and the district has been transformed by beautiful, and expensive, apartment blocks with impressive and varied architecture, which teeter over the river's edge as if they would fall in at any moment. There are also plans for offices, universities, and museums, with the whole construction culminating in the Elbe Philharmonic Hall, designed by the man behind London's Tate Modern. Jutting out into the main flow of the Elbe, like a defiant ship bow, it's going to look sensational when it's finally built.
