Driving in Hamburg, Germany – From Stadtpark to HafenCity

Hamburg Stadtpark is a large urban park in the district of Winterhude, in the Hamburg borough of Hamburg-Nord. Spanning an area of 148 hectares, it is the second-largest park in the city after Altona Volkspark. The Stadtpark is regarded as the “green heart” of Hamburg, despite being located some 3km from the city centre. Opened in 1914, Hamburg Stadtpark is an important example of German landscape design and the transformation from an urban garden to an urban park.

HafenCity is a quarter in the district of Hamburg-Mitte, Hamburg, Germany, Europe. It is located on the Elbe river island Grasbrook. It was formally established in 2008 and also includes the historical Speicherstadt area, which since 2015 is an UNESCO World Heritage Site with the adjacent Kontorhausviertel.
