Hamburg, Germany - 2nd October 2011

By: Mondfalke

Hello!
Finally! Hamburg! We had a long walk around Hamburg today and it was really great!
We started at the Reeperbahn, probably the most famous street in Hamburg. It is known as a street with many discos, bars and clubs but also as a Red Light District. In the past long ropes were made here.
Here we are still at the train station.

And here my first view over the Reeperbahn.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-P1-w2ulUhbk/TqHgeOViGbI/AAAAAAAADc0/of-47bdUL_c/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%2525283%252529.JPG
This side street is called "Große Freiheit", it is also really famous and almost every tourist is walking along here.

This place is called "Hans Albers Platz". Hans Albers was a singer and actor from Hamburg, he has sung the also famous song "Auf der Reeperbahn nachts um halb 1". Everyone living in Hamburg and in the surroundins can sing this song!

This is the police station at the Reeperbahn called "Davidswache". The German crime series "Tatort" is partly playing there.

Some more views over the Reeperbahn.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-L-Ot0tvPtIY/TqHgh2TqgwI/AAAAAAAADdI/OdlWqF0eRSs/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%2525288%252529.JPG
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-8Ui3CzkraMo/TqHgiX-qf1I/AAAAAAAADdM/9gqB9EpJvxM/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%2525289%252529.JPG
Jenny told me that the Reeperbahn is even more exciting at night but that it is not safe then for a little Pikachu like me!
This is the most known street were men can go if they search a woman for an hour or two... Women are not allowed to enter. There was also some football-game then as you can see at the two guys but I don't know who won...
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-CiKqHZ4H4VQ/TqHgjiZZMyI/AAAAAAAADdU/BBOB-u0nKhw/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252811%252529.JPG
Then we arrived at the harbour!
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-W5rnzDsp6OE/TqHgkLhVdUI/AAAAAAAADdY/pibj5K1xS4M/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252812%252529.JPG
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ujeNKpLxrAI/TqHgkhpL-JI/AAAAAAAADdc/OTI7clCrYvY/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252813%252529.JPG
We walked down to the water and along the river Elbe.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-mBmxay4jZzo/TqHglzpG8gI/AAAAAAAADdk/yd3kBcnqZC0/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252815%252529.JPG
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-rSQm-TMCRgg/TqHgmdj1nfI/AAAAAAAADdo/TmYazFwWrVU/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252816%252529.JPG
We decided to have a walk through the old Elbtunnel. There is a new one for cars as it took a lot of time for them to use the old one. They have to go down by lift!
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-cEDqid837eA/TqHgm0zlsBI/AAAAAAAADds/_3QWscPHzQs/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252817%252529.JPG
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-40003hmedKQ/TqHgnT7oWkI/AAAAAAAADdw/2DMcjPGN3iw/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252818%252529.JPG
These signs were in the tunnel.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-qG5p8cpXwuo/TqHgn-YwPDI/AAAAAAAADd0/2rxP0h3YVpc/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252819%252529.JPG
And the tunnel itself, it wasn't this yellow but the camera made it this way...
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ztWcauWBclo/TqHgob-40YI/AAAAAAAADd4/aTe6tZUpHlM/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252820%252529.JPG
And now we had a great view over the harbour from the other side of the Elbe.

Here we are on our way back right in the middle of the tunnel!
https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-PseZhRwgA_E/TqHgs3e5YYI/AAAAAAAADeY/q-CbKa9noso/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252828%252529.JPG
The "Rickmer Rickmers", a sailing ship that you could visit as a museum.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-ct6bwfwckkg/TqHgtRhBXGI/AAAAAAAADec/AUIJHLHyrC0/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252829%252529.JPG

We walked a little farther and came to the St. Michaelis-church. It is the main church of Hamburg.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-sI4JjNeNWPY/TqHgucO17PI/AAAAAAAADek/EAW2Y3rHD4g/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252831%252529.JPG
We didn't went up the tower but Jenny told me, that we would perhaps do that another day.
This strange building is called "Elbphilharmonie" and when it is finished you can visit classic concerts there.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-RoRbb_hnb_c/TqHgu6xaoJI/AAAAAAAADeo/czQLh7cJUQY/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252832%252529.JPG
Hamburg has many rivers and so some watergates are needed.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-8T_715JGkfc/TqHgvMbCXsI/AAAAAAAADes/ZQc4duQzeRA/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252833%252529.JPG
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-0IDjYZ9_s1I/TqHgvrbjPwI/AAAAAAAADew/GjQkD6JB17k/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252834%252529.JPG
These old warehouses are called "Speicherstadt" and perhaps they will become an UNESCO World Heritage Site soon, they are already on the tentative list.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-utGV5Ywbw8E/TqHgweTN2ZI/AAAAAAAADe0/MMd5JuhJBmE/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252835%252529.JPG
The way home led through a very small street called "Deichstrasse". There you can see some real old and typical hamburgian houses.
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ZsMggBIXxqY/TqHgwzm2W7I/AAAAAAAADe4/-0AcErO8Qs0/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252836%252529.JPG
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-7UqwaZ5GIAE/TqHgxhysPrI/AAAAAAAADe8/uxnt3q_K0ug/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252837%252529.JPG
In 1842 there was a real big fire in Hamburg and it started in the house called "Zum Brandanfang".
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-6dUOWY-gufQ/TqHgyL-GIzI/AAAAAAAADfA/YhyeMI2WQf4/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252838%252529.JPG
Directly next to the Deichstrasse is the old St. Nikolai-church. It was destroyed in World War II but the tower remained and it is now a memorial.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Y3T3AaoyBRg/TqHgy6nsJMI/AAAAAAAADfE/XVLU-rhEkxw/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252839%252529.JPG
This spring is in front of the church.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-ZN41cH6giGA/TqHg06t3lZI/AAAAAAAADfM/bkmzlD1VJI4/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252841%252529.JPG
This man is called "St. Ansgar" and he was archbishop from Hamburg.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-A9zcYE_5JTg/TqHg1TN6bkI/AAAAAAAADfQ/Z8VD-XUKeKE/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252842%252529.JPG
Finally we arrived in the inner city of Hamburg. Here you can see the town hall of Hamburg.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-HBCtPqwRfqU/TqHg12OTNKI/AAAAAAAADfU/QmmXELY5RsU/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252843%252529.JPG
As we turned around we saw the St. Petri-church.
https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-vT2EsQnnBGg/TqHg2TrVyQI/AAAAAAAADfY/ijQW8FJDSq0/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252844%252529.JPG
The main shopping street in Hamburg is called "Mönkebergstrasse".
https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-11kgFMUi0HU/TqHg22HOGvI/AAAAAAAADfc/sA5a1z03fFw/s640/3%252520-%252520Sanny%252520-%252520Hamburg%252520%25252845%252529.JPG
We walked along the Mönkebergstrasse and at the end took the train back home. We were really tired after such a long walk.

Bye,
Sanny
