Standing at the harbour of Hamburg one is confronted by an array of containerships, cargo ships, tugboats and luxury liners, all seemingly close yet out of reach. Initially, the complexity of the harbour and its infrastructure, which is accommodated on a few square kilometres, remains hidden from the observer.

Hafenkompass offers to build a bridge between the harbour and its visitors, organising individually planned excursions, of a technological, social, political, or even urban development aspect. Tailor made solutions for an ever changing world.

Our project work is based on different aspects, all of which are interrelated. The main influence being geo and harbour economics as well as pedagogical learning techniques. All participants receive scientific insight into the multi facetted world of the Hamburg harbour.

Our projects and tours inspired by the maritime surroundings are developed in close coordination with our clients. Projects developed for classes are based on Hamburg schools curriculum.
