Waterways have always been used to move and exchange people, goods and ideas. As international trade expanded, new raw materials were tapped and the demand for exotic products increased in Europe in the 19th century, oceans and waterways became the central nervous system of the capitalistic global economy. And for Germany and much of Europe, the port city of Hamburg became the “Gate to the World”.
