If building art is one of your passions, if you
are driven by the question how urban planning and
architecture coin the reality an the flair of a city, then
you should turn to alsterundelbe.de in Hamburg.
Hamburg’s focal points with regard to urban develop-
ment have increased dramatically by number and
fascination. The once “sleeping hanseatic beauty” is
wide awake: Due to a chain of pearls consisting of
new buildings the northern bank of the river Elbe
undergoes fundamental change. Various projects
spectacularly accentuate different places within the
city. Derelict industrial space is transformed into lively
urban quarters. First of all the currently biggest inner
urban redevelopment scheme in Europe has to be
mentioned: HafenCity. The great challenge is to plan
and build a new part of the city for more than 10,000
people – close to the town hall in a paramount situa-
tion between the old warehouse district Speicherstadt
and the river Elbe.

alsterundelbe.de will make you familiar with
these and other aspects that contribute to Hamburg´s
attractiveness. We offer backgrounds and outlooks for
groups or individuals for days or hours – tailor made
for your specific interest. Moreover, alsterundelbe.de
offer our help (and ideas) to gain experience with
hanseatic arts beyond the discovery of the city: be it
opera tickets or community festival, restaurant reser-
vation or hotel accomodation, exhibition or harbour
cruise – we provide information and organise anything
that will contribute to you being able to enjoy your visit
to Hamburg wholeheartedly.

Head of alsterundelbe.de ist Dipl. Ing. Bettina Schön.
After studies in Architecture and Urban Planning she
has spent the last years introducing Hamburg to
architects, planners, and other interested contemporaries.
