In early April my family and I went to visit Hamburg and the "HafenCity" ( =harbour city of Hamburg, new urban area that is still being planned and built - development started in 1997).

The Old Warehouse District "Speicherstadt" is a part of Hamburg where import and export was managed back in the days. As Hamburg is conveniently surrounded by the Elbe (River) the open sea is easily reached, which explains the most important source of income of the city - the maritime trade.

The area marked in red is the Old Warehouse District. The HafenCity is located south of the OWD. Only small parts have been finished until this day and many more projects are to start.
