Hamburg Guide

"There are many possibilities to explore this liveable and modern city with me, examples include the international urban exhibition, district development of Perlenkette, Kiez, Schanze or Wilhelmsburg.

Hamburg Expert

"The historical, amphibian Hamburg is a total work of art: first an early modern european example of urban development for the UNESCO due to the districts Speicherstadt and Kontorhausviertel; secondly one of the most dynamic cities in Germany for architects and urban planners due to the district HafenCity and Elbphilharmonie. I am currently available for consultation via telephone or Skype."
