Alter Elbpark, Landungsbrücken

The stronghold of the alternative scene from the 1980s is the occupied houses in Hafenstrasse 116-126. The graffiti on the façade testifies to the autonomous self-image, as a stronghold for punk boys and girls. Today, the houses belong to a cooperative community that the residents have founded, and which has also renovated loose.

Opposite the Landungsbrücken is the Hotel Hafen Hamburg, which, with its pyramid tower on the top floor, has a bar where the sunsets, accompanied by an early evening drink, enjoy particularly good conditions.
