A rescue mission in hamburg's old harbour
In the port of Hamburg, many generations of sailors and dockworkers have done their hard day’s work, seeking happiness in faraway lands and drowning their bad luck in high-proof liquor. Fiete, a dockworker, must have been hit particularly hard last night. During a walk along the Elbpromenade, you hear his cry for help. His situation is tricky, can you save him?
The walking tour “Free Fiete” takes you through Hamburg's Speicherstadt – a place whose origins date back to the middle ages, which in its current form was built in the late 19th century. The magnificent architecture with storage houses, canals and bridges is impressive to see and was named world heritage site for a reason.
You're a local and think you've seen everything already? "Free Fiete" takes on that challenge!
Mingling with the Speicherstadt as a remnant of the past is the HafenCity, where Hamburg’s future is being built today. A whole new quarter was built here over the past decades on the former premises of the harbour. It is one of Europe's largest urban development projects only 500m away from the city center, turning it into a showroom for impressive urban development and modern architecture, the most prominent site being the Elbphilharmonie.
