The Alte Hafenamt (old harbour master’s office) was designed by city construction inspector and architect Friedrich Kullrich, and built in 1889. Just as it did in the past, it continues to serve as a landmark for skippers arriving in the port of Dortmund. The listed building is now home to the new “Shipping and Ports” permanent exhibition by Dortmunder Hafen AG, which provides information on shipping and modern port management. Visitors gain an insight into the history and current development of Dortmund’s port.
One of the exhibition’s highlights is a multimedia projection that takes the birth and further development of Dortmund’s port and transports it virtually to the Alte Hafenamt. A quay wall running around the virtual dock gives visitors a bird’s-eye view of the show. From three sides, visitors can glimpse into the past, present and future of Dortmund’s port.
Further fields are opened up by a fascinating audio accompaniment, as well as old film footage of Dortmund and brief statements from various sectors of the port. Each topic can be selected individually, with the overall effect being to create a very personal impression of Dortmunder Hafen AG.
235 MEDIA designed and implemented the multimedia projection.
In cooperation with bild-werk Expo & Event GmbH.
