In Hamburg, two things stand out: water and architecture. The harbor has traditionally played a huge role in the city’s history and economy, and is currently being reinvented; the city is investing a lot of money in a new development called HafenCity in the harbour area. Several different plazas, museums and apartment buildings have already been built, with more in construction.
A new opera house is also under construction, which the city of Hamburg has even claimed rival the Sydney Opera House when completed — and this is only one of the buildings that will catch your eye in Hamburg. From the historic to the new and modern, the architecture of the city of Hamburg is quite striking.
