Hamburg - between Schanze and University

I took these pics about two weeks ago when I visited a friend in Hamburg.

This is where this neighbourhood is located:


I really loved it. It was still pretty central but kinda removed at the same time while still being busy and interesting.



Wouldn't mind living in one of these:


















Hamburg is definitly the capital of the smart car, they are everywhere.


The owner of this bike seems to be a St. Pauli fan.








































More beer!




















The bird was missing.


This was a hospice.


Graffiti is everywhere. Nobody bothers to remove it anymore.








Can you even call this graffiti?






































Yes, gas is almost 9$/gallon.




















































Taken at St. Pauli S.Bahn station on my way back




The last 4 pics were taken at Hamburg-Blankenese. It a bit further west from the city center directly along the river Elbe and it's pretty much the richest neighbourhood of Germany. Germany's Beverly Hills. I only had a few minutes here but I'm surely going back to take more pics, it's very intersting. There's also a beach and an old town.

Yeah! Nice to see "Rothaus" beer in Hamburg (the best beer in the world).
Great pictures by the way! Thanks!

I really do like Hamburg. The more I see of it the more I want to experience it!

I have to say, I hate the European attitude to taggers and rubbish "graffiti" you see EVERYWHERE. I wish they'd obliterate it and heavily fine the scum that do it. There is nothing wrong with graffiti [b]ART[b], but tagging is not art and it really gets my back up.

I like mix of the taller old-buildings and the two floor luxury mansions. At the pic with the TV tower to the right you can see the red watertower , recently converted into a 5 star hotel . this building is situated in the Schanzenpark , the entrance to the hotel is just under the park as far as I know.Do you have some closer pics of it ?

Hamburg looks a bit American...a bit San Francisco, a bit East-Coast. I never imagined it like this. Very different-looking from Cologne and Berlin (two German cities I know), and especially other European cities.

Hamburg indeed looks very different.This thread is only a small part of Hamburg, there are tons of surprising looking areas.

Hamburg does offer a lot. And what's most important, it's incredibly lively city, as these pictures suggest too.

Great thread!

This neighbourhood has a really nice atmosphere, it seems cozy and busy at the same time! Oh, I liked its architecture too!

Anyways... I just love Hamburg, it's my favorite german city!

Thanks for sharing!

Fantastic! Northern Germany is simply amazing, my favorite part of the country. When I went to Hamburg I stuck to the area around the City Hall and we walked a bit up to the Hbf, but my dad got too tired and we just drove around then hehe.

But I have a question, when we arrived we went through an area on the river shore in which an S-Bahn line ran and when you get some blocks inland you find some Spanish and Portuguese restaurants. There's also a nice place to walk around and you can see some buildings from there. Do you know where that is?

Found the pic:
