Opening of the Green Bunker on July 5th

Breathtaking views of the Elbphilharmonie, Michel, and the harbor – starting July 5th, all citizens can enjoy this spectacular view from Hamburg’s highest rooftop garden for free. On this date, the new “Reverb by Hard Rock” hotel, a restaurant, a bar, and a café will also be open.

Since 2019, numerous public spaces for culture, leisure, and gastronomy have been created across five floors, and an additional 23,000 trees, shrubs, and perennials have been planted in the extension.

The so-called mountain path leads to the top: the ascent, up to six meters wide, starts at ground level on the north side of the “Green Bunker.” It gradually rises along the east, south, and west facades, offering impressive panoramic views in all directions. Finally, the path culminates at a height of 58 meters in the public city garden.
The addition of five pyramid-like floors to the high bunker at Heiligengeistfeld and the creation of the “Hanging Gardens of Hamburg” is considered unique. For example, the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” sees this pioneering landscape architectural project as a “top place among the world’s attractions” within the “series of spectacular greened buildings.” It is regarded as a flagship project for the climate adaptation of metropolises.
For those who want to get a preview, these two NDR documentaries provide more information about the internationally celebrated urban highlight.
