Hamburg is the second largest city in Germany, which means that every time you come to visit you are sure to find something new. There are lovely residential areas with the houses built in that typically northern style, with plenty of white stone buildings and lots of ornaments. There is a lot of  carefully-tended greenery. If you walk through any park, you will see lots of plants, birds, ducks and sea-gulls or maybe they are river gulls. Many buildings have quite original statues placed on their fronts. There are also lots of long stretches of covered walkways which reminded us of Italy, and in fact of many other areas where it rains often. Naturally if you like architecture you should see the City Hall, Rathaus, and visit its beautiful inner yard with the fountains and statues. The tall tower of Alte Post, the Old Post-Office, can be seen from far away, as well as the new TV tower which dominates the skyline. It is clear that the people who built this magnificent city wanted to live in a beautiful place created by their own hands.
