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

On my way to the Speicherstadt






View from the tower of St. Michaelsi or Michel as the Hamburger call it




You can see the Millerntor on the left side, stadium of famous football club FC St. Pauli
and the massive WW2 bunkeron the right


St. Pauli Landungsbrücken (piers), where the old sailing vessels used to dock










You can see the red bricks of the Speicherstadt (Bonded Warehouse District which was built between 1883 and 1928 as a Free Port).

In a recent New York times article " 36 hours in Hamburg " the author described Hamburg as a " cosmopolitan-cool " , different to Berlin and City like Bilbao , San Francisco or New York.
"Where else than in Hamburg you can windowshopping for Cartier neckcollars at the day and hanging up with crazy punk-rocks in the evening " he wrote , visiting also this area "Storehouse-city" and calling it a big architectural curiosity , there is also a slide-show to this articel in the NYT.:)
