The two districts Speicherstadt and HafenCity are situated east of the Landungsbrücken (U1 Meßberg, U3 Baumwall, U4 Überseequartier). Speicherstadt is a historical warehouse district and UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is famous for its red brick architecture and its waterways between the buildings. HafenCity is a newly-created district which is characterised by its modern architecture. One outstanding building is the Elbphilharmonie concert house.
The Elbstrand is a small beach beside the port. You can get there with the number 112 bus or the 62 ferry (Övelgönne station).
The U3 stops at many places to see in Hamburg (Sankt Pauli, Landungsbrücken, HafenCity, Stadtpark) and offers a small tour around the city.
