Hamburg’s new landmark provides enough material for a thousand and one tales
Three bridges cross the river at the foot of the Elbtower. They connect Hamburg’s southern districts of Grasbrook and Veddel with today’s Hafencity as well as the northern Rothenburgsort and Hammerbrook.
The view from the Elbtower takes in the Norderelbe, one of the most important waterways in Europe.
The water location is an inspiration for people in the Elbtower. Surrounded by water, the building is a driving force for Hamburg’s transformation.
The Elbtower serves an important urban planning function: supported by new bridges, it links HafenCity with Rothenburgsort and joins both districts to Hamburg’s city centre.
When the Elbtower is completed in three years’ time, thousands of people will come and go every day: The tower will become a hub in Hamburg’s transport system.
High-quality office space in Hamburg’s city centre is in high demand and the centre’s attraction is still unbroken.
