The HafenCity East tour also departs from the Kesselhaus, at the heart of the emerging HafenCity. Before leaving here, we will use the model of the city to point out the current and future planning processes for the 155-hectare HafenCity.
From the Kesselhaus, we cross Sandtor park, passing the Katharinenschule, and enter the neighbourhood at the heart of the new HafenCity, the Überseequartier. We walk along Überseeboulevard to the new HafenCity University at Magdeburger Hafen. From here, the tour carries on to the Elbtorquartier, home of the new Greenpeace corporate headquarters, passing through Lohse park. The tour ends at the Spiegel HQ designed by Henning Larsen.
The aim of this tour is to demonstrate the ongoing rebirth of the former harbour area as a modern residential and business district.
