Day 12011/07/10

Hinz&Kunzt Hamburg, Germany

Hinz&Kunzt(ハンブルク, ドイツ)|Hamburg(Katya Sondakさん) - 02

Nearby St Nikolai, not to be confused with the new Hauptkirche St Nikolai in Harvestehude, was the world’s tallest building from 1874 to 1876, and remains Hamburg’s second-tallest structure (after the TV tower). Mostly destroyed in WWII, the crypt now houses an unflinching underground exhibit on the horrors of war focussing on three events in World War II: the German bombing of Coventry in 1940, the German destruction of Warsaw and Operation Gomorrha, the combined British and American bombing of Hamburg over three days and nights in 1943 that killed 35,000 and incinerated much of the centre. Afterwards, you can take a glass lift up to a 76.3m-high viewing platform inside the surviving spire for views of Hamburg's centre put into context of the wartime destruction.

聖ミヒャエル教会(H Michaeliskirche)(ハンブルク, ドイツ)|Hamburg(Katya Sondakさん)

Northeast of the landing piers, the St Michaeliskirche, or ‘Der Michel’ as it’s commonly called, is one of Hamburg’s most recognisable landmarks and northern Germany’s largest Protestant baroque church. Ascending the tower (by steps or lift) rewards with great panoramas across the canals. The crypt has an engaging exhibit on the city's history.

Jungfernstieg Hamburg, Germany

ユングフェルンシュティーク(Jungfernstieg)(ハンブルク, ドイツ)|Hamburg(Katya Sondakさん)

In front of the Binnenalster (“Inner Alster Lake”) you will find Hamburg’s most popular promenade – the Jungfernstieg. Its name leads back to a old tradition. A long time ago families came to the Jungfernstieg on sundays for taking a walk with their unmarried ladies, the damsels (german word: “Jungfer”). The name “Jungfern”stieg resulted from this rite.

Hamburg-Neustadt Hamburg, Germany

Hamburg-Neustadt(ハンブルク, ドイツ)|Hamburg(Katya Sondakさん)

A beach bar without water? 'No problem', said its enterprising owners, who built this summer garden smack bang in the grungy Schanzenviertel. Music, snacks, massages and a kid's playground are often joined by sculpture exhibitions.
