Planten un Blomen

Planten un Blomen is Hamburg's most centrally located park, located northwest of Neustadt, just west of Rotherbaum. It is a very beautiful park, has a
size of47 hectars and includes an old botanical garden as well as a beautiful Japanese garden, Europe's largest. Hamburg's tallest structure, Heinrich-
Hertz-Turm and the tallest skycraper, Radisson Hotel, are clearly visible from the park. Planten und Blomen means "plants and flowers" in Low German, the
local accent. The park is known for its water-light concerts.



Heinrich-Hertz-Turm, Hamburg's tallest structure, is 280m to the top of the antenna. It was built in 1968 and used to have a revolving rooftop restaurant, but it was
closed because of new fire regulations.


Radisson Blu Hotel (for long known as Hamburg Plaza) from 1972 is Hamburg's tallest and most wellknown skyscraper. It is 108m tall and has 32 floors. It is part of
the Hamburg Messe (fair and congress center).
















The park has a huge variety of trees, plants, flowers.


The Japanese Gardens (Japanischer Garten):




The gate to the Japanese Garden.






Tea ceremonies are held summertime in its Japanese tea house.

HAFENCITY:

HafenCity is the new area that has been developed recently in Hamburg's harbour, right next to the city center. Large shiny new office and residential buildings are built right by wide canals. Some office highrises have also been built in Hafencity. Much is now completed, but even more is planned for the future, like the new large concert hall. By 2015 the area will have 10 000 inhabitants and 15 000 workers. It is a nice place to stroll summertime.
Hafencity reminds a bit of American cities. A part of HafenCity is called Speicherstadt, where the canals flows through renovated warehouses (see the Speicherstadt section). Hamburg has more bridge inside its city limits then any other city, more then Amsterdam and Venice combined.


HafenCity: Columbus Haus and Elbphilharmonie (u/c), the concert hall that will be completed in 2012. River Elbe flows through Hamburg's harbour.


Columbus Haus at Hanseatic Trade Center was built in 2002. It has 23 floors.


St Nikolai and Katharinenkirche seen from Hafencity.
















Am Sandtorkai reminds of a street in some American city.


Elbphilharmonie, finallly under construction after financial troubles. When completed in 2012 this striking new theater and concert hall will be 110 m tall. It consist of a s
triking steel structure built over an old warehouse. The architect firm is Herzog & de Meuron.


Sandtorhafen is a small boat harbour with modern residential buildings in rare shapes. It is a nice place to stroll and reminds a bit of cities like Vancouver.

Many buildings with unconventional architecture are located in the harbour.

A very cool building that plays music from classical concerts.


At Pavillon Elbphilharmonie you can hear the orchestra play different symphonies if you listen in the holes.

The new Unilever highrise building is one of the most striking ones in the harbour. It has 17 floors. It has a light and futuristic atrium inside.




Am Sandtorkai: To the left are the renovated warehouses of Speicherstadt and to the right is the newly built residential and office blocks of HafenCity.

Speicherstadt will be posted soon.

SPEICHERSTADT

Speicherstadt, located in HafenCity in the port of Hamburg, is the world's largest timber-pile founded warehouse district, built from 1883 to 1927. The district was built as a free zone to transfer goods without paying customs. Since 2009 the district a is under redevelopment and some of the warehouses have been transformed into trendy office and residential buildings. The area is reallyunique in its character and architecture and is filled with beautiful canals. The old warehouses contrast to the nearby modern office blocks in glass and steel. It is now a large tourist attraction with many museums.


Brooksfleet is one of 3 canals flowing through Speicherstadt.

When I first went to Hamburg the Speicherstadt was still operational and I was told it was outside the German customs area, so you needed a passport to get into it

To make the development of Hafencity possible. Also changes in the logistics industry (containerisation, bigger ships) made the Speicherstadt as a logistics place rather unimportant in comparison to the rest of the harbour.
