Baakenpark Hamburg - after 1 year

Since 2015 an artificial peninsula made of sand from the river Elbe has become the green centre of the eastern part of HafenCity. The spectacular topography together with the self-seeded tree population form a variety of different spaces. As a result, the park, covering only 1,6 ha, has a surprisingly spacious feel. Construction cost including civil engineering approx. € 15 million.
