VIP guest visits Chilehaus
German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier took the opportunity today to visit Chilehaus prior to the awarding of the UNESCO World Heritage certificate to the First Mayor of Hamburg, Olaf Scholz. Volker Noack, a member of the management team at Union Investment Real Estate GmbH, welcomed the Foreign Minister and personally showed him around the World Heritage Site.
From the roof of the Chilehaus building, Mr. Steinmeier was able to enjoy the view of the Kontorhaus district and the Speicherstadt district located opposite. He was very impressed by the vibrant and well-maintained Chilehaus, which he had chosen to visit at his own request. After admiring the view from the roof, the Foreign Minister then took an impromptu tour of the building accompanied by Mr. Noack. At the end of the visit, Mr. Noack presented Mr. Steinmeier with an illustrated volume documenting the history of the Chilehaus building.
