In the narrower sense, HafenCity is the project name for the roughly 157 hectare area on the Großer Grasbrook, which was once part of the free port. By the beginning of the 2030s, residential units for up to 14,000 people [2], up to 3,000 hotel rooms and workplaces for up to 45,000 people, primarily in the office and service sector, are to be created on the site. In addition, up to 10,000 pupils and students as well as around 50,000 customers and tourists are calculated per day, so that once it is completed, over 120,000 people are expected to enliven the district every day. It is currently one of the largest inner-city urban development projects in Europe.

Three historical access bridges serve to open up the pontoon system in front of it, and three restored general cargo cranes are erected on the Kaiserkai on the south bank of the harbor - reminiscences of the history of the place!

The tour was cancelled. I have found Viator reliable in the past but not this time. To cancel on the same day gave me no opportunity to book into another tour.


Amazing structure and architecture - this is a fabulous building - with stunning panoramic views and definitely worth a visit!


Moin moin, die Grösse des Hamburger Hafens😀 hat mich am meisten beeindruckt. Neeeeee, keine Lust mehr zu erzählen.


Sehr individuelle, interessante und flexible Tour die unsere Wünsche erfüllt hat! Vielen Dank dafür!

Wir buchten eine Führung durch die Konzertsäle und durften kurze Zeit bei einer Probe zuhören. Unser Guide war absolut phantastisch. Mit Humor und ganz viel Wissen führte sie uns ca 2 Stunden durchs Haus und hat uns so richtig auf den Geschmack gebracht. Demnächst werden wir in ein Konzert gehen


Vorneweg: die Tour an sich kann ich nicht bewerten, die fand nicht statt. Treffpunkt war auf einer Großbaustelle (Amsterdamer Platz). Nach Anruf bei Jolly-Tours (weil da kann man sich nicht treffen) angeblich keine Buchung erhalten. „Buchung muss wohl untergegangen sein“ - wir waren wohl die einzigen die gebucht hatten. Bitte um Rückruf für Ersatz erfolgte nicht - eine richtige Entschuldigung auch nicht. Ich hatte (gemutmaßt ) den Eindruck das hätte sich nicht gelohnt nur für uns zwei. Erstattung gibt schnell - Tag war anders geplant.


Die gebuchte Führung war für uns sehr bereichernd, begann pünktlich, Treffpunkt war gut gewählt, sehr informativ. Sie hat unsere Erwartungen voll erfüllt- dickes Lob an den Guide! Wir besuchen Hamburg wieder!👍👍👍
