An atmosphere of urban change dominates the Harburg Harbour. The harbour area is managed by young companies. Old silos, warehouses, and office complexes are being repurposed for intriguing new uses and, from an architectural perspective, are being reconfigured in exciting new ways. The restaurant industry established itself here long ago – innovative ideas continue to attract ever more guests to the ‘Channel Hamburg’. Just take a tour of discovery through the harbour area and see for yourself. Hamburg city centre is also just a short tram ride away with the tramway (Harburg-Rathaus Station). Event highlight: ‘Leinen Los’ (Anchors Away) Harbour Festival: www.harburger-hafenfest.de, www.kulturwerkstatt-harburg.de.
