Olympic Games in Hamburg
Hamburg applied for the olympic games in 2012 - the southeast part of the HafenCity would have been the place for the olympic village. The olympic games were considered necessary to speed up the developmental process of the HafenCity. But in April 2002 Leipzig won the pre-elections of the german city-candidates.
