Commentary

After its closure as a harbour for handling of goods the site of Rheinauhafen of 2000m length and 200 m width has been developped since 2003 into a new urban quarter with a structural mix of living, working, gastronomy and cultural hot spots. The combination of historical buildings and modern architecture as well as its location straight on the banks of the river Rhine creates a unique and distinctive attraction. Particularly outstanding are the three "Kranhäuser" (architects Hadi Teherani and Alfons Linster) of 62m hight understanding the refurbished ancient harbour cranes in their form of appearance. In 2009 the middle Kranhaus was decorated in Cannes with the MIDIM-Award.
