Hamburg is one of my favorite cities in the world. It is large and beautiful, and each time we visit it there is always something new. We have been to the celebrated Port in summer once, and now we decided to see it in winter. Though it was a bit chilly, lots of people walked around enjoying the sights, snapping pictures, buying souvenirs and eating snacks. It is possible to step down to the water’s edge and see the many ships and yachts, or just stand on the top promenade and have a panoramic view. As chance would have it, I read about Hamburg Harbor City on one of the flights in an onboard Lufthansa magazine, so I was quite curious to see the new buildings. The area is really impressive. All the land transportation is nearby, with the short bridge which leads to the S-Bahn and U-Bahn station. As in many other places, we saw a zillion little locks decorating the railings. I have no idea where and how the tradition originated, but they seem to be ubiquitous today. The incessant babble and shrill cries of the sea-gulls swooping around, searching greedily for any food scraps, completes this seaside picture.
