This is the street high above the waterfront that everyone is talking about. When the threat of these houses, which offer splendid views of the Elbe
and the harbour, being pulled down increased, protesters occupied them. The Hafenstraße
became the epitome of protest and contemporary anarchy. In 1987, the city and the squatters reached a compromise, which is now no longer valid. The houses are gradually being restored to their former glory.
