The experience in Hamburg offered a contrasting perspective. In areas like HafenCity and St. Georg, the impact of immigration on the sensory environment is distinctly observable. HafenCity, a hub for immigrant goods, resonates with the sounds of global commerce and the smells of international products. St. Georg, with its vibrant ethnic markets and restaurants, is a sensory feast. The area's soundscape is a symphony of different languages and music, while its smellscape is a blend of exotic spices and culinary traditions worldwide. These neighborhoods exemplify how immigration can transform urban spaces into sensory crossroads of cultural exchange.
Two important regions of Hamburg, according to its unique soundscape and smellscape, are:
- Hafen city as a gate of immigrant's goods import
- St. Georg, a neighborhood with a wide range of immigrant ethnic markets and restaurants
