The "Gorch Fock" and the "Queen Elizabeth" will be the stars amongst what organizers say will include 300 participating vessels and welcome around one million visitors from around the world to the Hamburg Harbor.
Seventy years on from the destruction of the Second World War, the historic centre of Frankfurt is rising again. The urban project is to feature 20 new and 15 replica buildings and is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
