    On the Altonaer balcony with impressive view of the Elbe is the most well-known work of Gerhard Brandes: The 1968 erected plastic Maritim, also known as Drei Fischer, made of beaten copper.

The greenish patina of copper underscores the maritime impression with its memory of marine

    You can climb the building via the outside stairs and be rewarded with a great view over the Hamburg oats.

    The futuristic office building in the form of a parallelogram rises 40 meters above the Elbe like a ship's bow. There is a public viewing platform on its roof, which can be reached via an outside staircase. The climb up around 140 steps is rewarded with a view of the Elbe and the harbor.
    The Dockland name was chosen based on the dock areas that had been converted into residential and office buildings in London. It was designed by the Hamburg team of architects Bothe, Richter, Teherani.

    The Port of Hamburg is the flagship of the popular Hanseatic city of Hamburg par excellence. Not without reason is the Port of Hamburg the tourist destination, with its huge ship cranes in the background and the typical fish stalls on the harbor promenade. The Port of Hamburg attracts magical. Whether locals or travelers: it serves as a meeting place, a haven of peace and a place of fascination at the same time. With the included Hamburg City Pass public transport ticket, you can easily and free get to the Port of Hamburg and many other top attractions in Hamburg.
