4 SCHIFF­BAU

Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS -

Exit the Prime Tower and walk five min­utes north­east un­der the Hard­brucke overpass and take a left on to Schiff­baus­trasse. On the right is Schiff­bau, a for­mer ship­yard. This vast brick ed­i­fice has huge arch-win­dows and a dis­used rail track leads to its en­trance.

Con­verted by ar­chi­tect Peter Kern, Schiff­bau re­opened in 2002 as a cul­tural hub. It has a restau­rant, jazz club and theatre and is par­tic­u­larly lively in the evening. It can also be ac­cessed through­out the day and is worth pop­ping in to ad­mire the steel gird­ers and ma­chin­ery that hang from its ceil­ing.
