Zone: The Old Town

The port of Hamburg is Germany's largest port, and the second-largest in Europe – a port which Germans habitually call “the gates to the world”. As well as goods, the port has welcomed people – people often hoping to find freedom in the northern lands of Germany. For example, in the 16th century Protestants from Holland, who feared persecution in their own country, found refuge here in Hamburg. So too did Jews from Portugal - and a century later, French aristocrats fleeing the French Revolution. Back then they would have seen a waterfront district of warehouses and piers, with merchants and sailors scurrying about their business. Today, the waterfront of Hamburg's harbour looks very different – one of the most prestigious and fast-developing districts of the city, lined with expensive new buildings and a lively leisure and dining area.
