Last Friday we went out for a guided tour in English through the Airbus plant in Finkenwerder (Island of the finches) located at the Lower Elbe.
We met at Landungsbrücken, the heart of the touristic part of Hamburg port where we took a ferry to Finkenwerder. The special feature of the this harbour ferry is that it forms part of the fare-collection joint venture between different transportation companies (HVV) so that the semester tickets and other public transport tickets are valid on the ferry as well.
Since the sky was bright and sunny lots of tourists were with us and we spent the crossing on the upper deck enjoying the sun and the wonderful Hamburg panorama. (Landungsbrücken-Tower, the cupola of the Old Elb-Tunnel, St. Michel Church, Elbphilharmonie and lots of (container) ships, a few of them really enormous. We even saw the favourite ship of the Hamburg people, Queen Mary II which currently stays for renovation works in Dock Elbe 17 at the shipyard "Blohm and Voss". It was a lot of fun since a few of us who stand a bit close to the bow got a slight shower due to the waves swell.
Once in Finkenwerder we got on the bus which brought us to the Airbus plant. It was a good idea to make a group photo in front of the Airbus plant entrance because inside it was strictly forbidden to take photos for high-security reasons.
Airbus Hamburg-Finkenwerder is the leading aircraft manufacturer in Europe and with 12.500 employees one of the most important employer in Hamburg. Our Canadian guide, Mr Chraplak, made of our visit an unforgettable and wonderful experience. Many thanks from all of us! After instructing us about the rules how to behave during the visit ("no photos or I'm dead", "don't move from the group" "there is always a bodyguard behind us" etc) he gave us an excellent insight in this amazing company. It was very instructive and entertaining. We learnt a lot about the aircraft families, the logistics and the final assembly in Finkenwerder. We visited a few hangars to take a closer look at the aircrafts. We even had the chance to see an aircraft 380 which was on the square outside in the term to be delivered right away to its customer.
What has our MathMods programme in common with Airbus?
Right: We are as international as Airbus is. Our students come from around the globe, Airbus is a global aircraft manufacturer with plants in France, Germany, Spain, England, the United States, China, Japan, India, the Middle East, Singapore, Miami ...

I think everyone enjoyed the visit. The photos after the visit speak for themselves.


Many thanks for joining us and for contributing to a wonderful experience!

Last Friday (June 03, 2016) we went out on a Hamburg excursion through the new Hafen-City district. We were lucky for having chosen this day, it was a wonderful early summer day and Hamburg was shown at its best. But it was not the nice weather which made this event unique but our guests from Italy: Professor Rubino and Danilo honoured us by paying us a visit! Many thanks!
After an introduction given by our guide at the Hafen-City information centre we went out for a guided tour through the biggest inner city construction site in Europe (155 hectares) where they try to link areas of living, working, research and leisure. This ambitious project, started in 2008, is expected to be finished in 2030. The city of Hamburg as owner of the ground awards the construction site especially to companies, co-ops and principals who respect the idea of environmental sustainability. The area of the HafenCity used to be part of the old free port. Once completely developed, it will be home to about 12,000 people and the workplace of 40,000 people mostly in office complexes.
I think we gained some good impressions about the new and very modern part of Hamburg port.

It was really amazing that so many of you joined us.

Many thanks to all of you and enjoy the photos!
