Hamburg waterfront

Hamburg waterfront 

The Cap San Diego was built and launched by Deutsche Werft in 1961 for Hamburg Süd as the last of a series of six ships. The 159 m, 10000 dwt ship ran a regular schedule between Germany and South America, completing 120 round trips until 1981. After being sold and running under different names and flags of convenience as a tramp trader, the run-down ship was scheduled for scrapping in 1986, when it was bought by the city of Hamburg.

The impressive building on the right is The Elbphilharmonie. On 2 April 2007, the foundation stone was laid, and construction was due to be completed in 2010, but the buidling was finally completed in 2016. The base is an old warehouse.

I would have liked to visit the philharmonia building, but unfortunately we didn't have time, and it wasn't on the agenda when we were there.

You're right we should have somehow found the time to go in there. It is not only the view into the harbour and shipyards that would have been worthwhile, but also the special architecture of the interior spaces. I would have liked to do that on Sunday, but there was too less time for you.
Maybe there's a second chance in another year?

It's good to see a few ships being saved from scrapping for heritage purposes.

What a wonderful looking waterfront...............composed and captured beautifully Amelia.

I'm really impressed by The Elbphilharmonie. What a great use to put the old warehouse too. Much better than demolishing it.
