Located on the southern tip of the Jutland Peninsula, Hamburg holds the second largest port in Europe and plays an important role as a commercial and political hub. Internationally recognized for its progressive urban planning, Hamburg has been designed with rigorous attention to its waterfront. Today, the city continues to reimagine its urban fabric through transformative cultural projects. Centering around a redevelopment known as HafenCity, Hamburg’s new architecture and urban regeneration projects are as impressive as they are diverse.

Architzer rounds up a collection of cultural projects throughout Hamburg that demonstrate its contemporary building style and that embody the city’s nickname, “The Gateway to the World.”
