Hamburg in april Part I (city center, town hall, Alster and canals)

I took these pics two weks ago during a really nice day in Hamburg.

Hamburg in april Part II (Speicherstadt, Hafencity and St. Pauli piers)

If you step out of the Central station you see the cute little Hotel Fürst Bismarck. The other three pictures were taken from the same spot.









Part of the Central station


Never seen so many Smart cars as I saw this day in Hamburg, even the police is using them:


Shopping street, only taxis and busses allowed.








approaching the town hall








Binnenalster


Monument for the dead soldiers of WWI (40.000 sons of the city gave their life for you)








The Alsterarkaden were built in 1843 by Alexis de Chateauneuf
















Unusually warm and sunny for april. Sometimes there are summers with only a few days +30°C.






You cann see the St. Michaelis Church in the back


























State Opera of Hamburg ont he left (you'll see the place where the spectacular new opera is going to be in PartII)






















There are two big canals (Fleets) going trought the business district

What a stunning city! I can't believe this thread got such very little attention. This is the best Hamburg thread I've seen on this site. It really shows what a civilized and elegant city Hamburg is!

Who cares that they have hardly any skyscrapers? Skyscrapers do not a city make!

Hamburg is so underrated. Why isn't there a bigger buzz about this place? No one seems to talk about Hamburg.

In Germany people talk allot about Hamburg. Its our second city. But they should probably increase marketing overseas. Everybody seems to concentrate on Berlin at the moment. Which is not justified IMO.

People concentrate on Berlin because it's an amazing location. Though not "beautiful", it certainly knocks the socks off a lot of cities in terms of interest, things to do and uniqueness.

I am currently living 3 days a week in this gorgeous city! I love it. Very high quality of life and awesome nightlife and culture. There are 104 consulates in the city making it after NYC and Hong Kong the city with the third highest number of consulates in the world. People of almost 200 nationalities are currently living in Hamburg.
