“The new part of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

We stayed in a hotel in Hafen City, so walked around here a lil.

It is not completely finished yet, so there is a lot of constructions going on still - on weekend they have days off so is more quit.

I really loved the huge and wide promenades, buildings with glasses and lovely little shops and restaurants with nice decors. There are places where you will pay more, and others that are more suitable for my wallet.

Would have loved to stay longer to discover more hidden places.

“old warehouses”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2014

Well i can't tell too much,i see just a lot of warehouses, maybe there was more but a lot of them become very new complex buildings, with offices and other stuff. The old buildings can give kind of feeling that you are living in the industrial revolution.

“Very nice place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 December 2013

I liked the new place of Hamburg and the water area is a very refreshing part of a European city. The restaurants and buildings have a certain freshness to it. I stayed in the hotel there and I will get back there again.

“Cool or dull; up to you”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2013

I loved the place. It's not beautiful, it's certainly not the heart of Rome or Paris, or monumental in scale - apart from the excellent Maritime Museum - so if you're easily bored and you expect full tilt glamour and a constant parade of wonders, try somewhere else. What I found was a quiet, stress free jumble of modern architecture and old red brick, residential and commercial, all shot through with canals and docks.
I walked in from Jungfernstieg through the red brick warehouses of Speicherstadt and explored everything on foot. Finished up walking across Baakenhafenbrücke to climb the orange HafenCity viewing platform on a very wet day, looking over the harbour, then returning through the Unilever HQ - tiny market inside on a Saturday - and warming up in one of the eateries near the Kühne & Nagel university.
