Opening party.

HafenCity's Lohsepark was opened.

14.07.2016 - HafenCity's biggest park landscape has been completely finished. The Lohsepark was opened last weekend. Around 20,000 visitors celebrated the park’s opening with a big summer party attended by Hamburg’s first mayor.

An artificial trough cuts through the new park. This so-called "seam" traces the route of the historic rail tracks from the former station forecourt, through the park to the former platform. The building is part of a place of remembrance of a dark chapter of Hamburg history: between 1940 and 1945 at least 7,692 people - Jews, Sinti and Roma - were deported from here.
