As we walk along the streets, we became enchanted by the architecture and the cultural diversity of Hamburg. We found wide extensions of green all over, and waterways that draw a clean and wonderful urban dynamic. Luckily the weather was on our side, and we were able to wander around the city collecting memories of what we could grasp.
It’s quite an enriching experience to actually see one of the biggest harbors in Europe, a place that was considered the gates to the world. Coincidence or not we arrived on the 828th Hamburg Port Anniversary, and were fortunate to watch this maritime fest, which led us to be more conscientious of the important role the river Elbe is playing in this region.
Our friends and hosts Ad. and Be. guided us in a wonderful way through museums, churches, stations, quarters and places with a strong collective history, showing us a little more than the mere surface of things. In many situations we witnessed the wealth of the details, like the church rooftops, the memory stones on the pavement, the animals house inside the children’s playground, the shinny finger of the bronze statue, the little objects placed on a dinning table and many many more.
We are lucky to have met you!
Now it’s our turn to share what we brought in images to remember.
Thank you Germany!
