Hamburg

I visited Hamburg last week. Hope you enjoy! The first half of the pictures was taken at cloudy weather and the second half at good weather.


























































I took all pictures.

Mein Gott!
The pride of northern Germany is like an even better Stockholm and Copenhagen!
Looks stunning even in dull february weather and is an absolute jewel in the summer!
Wunderschöne Fotos!

Looks good, but where are all the people and cars? It was a quite day, I guess?

I took the pictures of HafenCity and the harbour on a Sunday afternoon and the pictures of Neustadt and Altstadt on a Monday morning. And it was about -5 degree Celsius on that day.

Yes, Hamburg looks a bit Scandinavian, but a bit more exciting in my opinion (nightlife, architecture etc) then most Scandinavian cities, but it is also bigger then any Scandinavian city.

Hamburg looks as gorgeous as ever! Great Photos!

For me Hamburg is the only big city in Germany, where you could honestly say, that modern and old blend just perfectly and with style!

Some parts of Hamburg remind me of London...

Indeed. While the city center has a very nordic look, some of Hamburg's inner-city neighborhoods (not pictured here) have a strong resemblance to London and southern England.

Hamburg is a beauty of a city.

I consider it my first stop if ever visit Germany.

I don't think I have ever seen the city center so empty but sunday and monday morning explains it I guess.

Hamburg used to be my favourite German city and I always thought I was
going to live there one day but now I lean closer to Berlin than Hamburg.

Still, have to go there again soon to check out the Hafencity.

That´s what I´m saying!
Even two more things that makes it even better than both Stockholm and Copenhagen.

Yes Berlin first, Hamburg second, followed by München on third place!
Size wise in other words!

Right! And not to forget is the fact that I took the pictures on Sunday 20th. On this day there was the Hamburg state election, where many went voting and / or stayed at home to hear the results, I think.
