photo hunt: classic


themes · about ·


These are classic pictures of Hamburg, Germany , where we used to live before moving to Spain. Das Rathaus, the City Hall :


Jungfernstieg and the Alster Lake. If you like maps, here is one!

Hauptbahnhof, the main train station.

The reason I chose this classic pictures is that I am currently in Hamburg, Germany, posting early with a great view of the Alster Lake downtown and visiting late as I will be home late on saturday. These pictures were in my archives and were taken in the summer, Hamburg is cloudy and cold (max 10ºC/ 50ºF) at this time of the year but there isn't such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing!! It´s a pity for the hobby photographer, though, sunny pictures are much prettier... Happy hunting!

    I was in Hamburg as a little girl for Octoberfest! haaa, it has been years.
    We went down the river on Rafts. And everyone was drinking beer, I was scared they would fall overboard! ;-)
