HafenCity is a small quarter of Hamburg, featuring a number of modern and spectacular buildings. Go for a stroll, and explore the area around the harbour.


Elbphilharmonie has become the emblem of Hamburg. The concert hall was built on the basis of a former brick granary, it has 26 floors and is over 110 metres high. The impressive glass-wave-roof was drafted by the architects Herzog and de Meuron. It consists of 1089 glass panes. Every single one is unique and was made in Bavaria or Italy. The concert hall is constructed to host 2150 people. The hall is located 50 meters above sea level and is attached to hairsprings for acoustic insulation.

The Oval

Living in the 40 meter high Oval will award you with a fantastic view across Hamburg. In 2008, it was voted building of the year by the architecture and engineering union. The Oval was built by 'Ingenhoven Architects' from Dusseldorf. The tower, which has 11 floors, is built on 5 meter high shorings. The building is ellipsoidal and the glas front is undulated, which offers all 30 apartment residents a great view on the harbour, Speicherstadt and Hamburg center.

Unilever House

The German Unilever head office is an architectural highlight and was awarded many times. It excels in its energy concept of using LED light only and the outer layer is made out of ETFE- foil. In 2009, it was appointed the most famous office building. 'Benish Architects' from Stuttgart constructed the building. The atrium with a spa and a cafe is open to everyone to enjoy the view on river Elbe.

Marco Polo Tower

This building also was created by 'Benisch architects'. It consists of 17 twisted floors and offset patios and balconies. The 26 meter high tower is one of the most expensive estates in Hamburg. The luxurious apartments were furnished by international interior designers and are personalised for every resident.

How to get there

The easiest way to navigate Hamburg is on public transportation. Take subway like U4 to Überseequartier or HafenCity Universität.
