    A different experience that is well worth doing and also free! Do not forget to visit the Old Elbe Tunnel viewpoint and take some pictures.

    The place is very poor, demolished, abandoned..but underground artists transformed it into a paradise!!
    the place has many graffitis and artworks just in the streets, you can see the art resistance in Hamburg at this place!

    Nice park to spend a sunny afternoon walk or bike around the historic water infrastructure. Enjoyed the little water regulation houses and the birds in the ponds. The palace that houses the museum was closed on monday , but the park was open.
    Important memorial monument about the slave labor impossed to hundreds of human beings during WWII by Germany at this water treatment organization . List of prisoners name by name

    This is the main police station serving St Pauli and the Reeperbahn. It is a very old building and has some very ornate features including the old sign “police station” (politzei wache).

    You would just walk by this place (unless you need the police of course or taken there by them with no choice!) but is really is worth taking the time to stop and enjoy the design and beauty of the building.

    Arriving midafternoon on a Sunday, my friend and I enjoyed the modest crowd, music concert on stage, cool weather, and views of the river and city hall. Plenty of food choices around and s train station nearby, if you didn’t feel up to the walk back to the hotel.

    Situated in the grounds of a church this shelter is in an excellent state or repair and seems to have been of great value to many of the locals as the immediate area was bombed. With ARP items, photographs and other items of interest this is a good example of one type of shelter of the period.

    Ohlsdorf is c.30 mins by train from central Hamburg and the cemetery 10-15 mins walk from the station. Check online for a cemetery map and directions as the cemetery is huge. The Jewish section is clearly marked.

    These days the Jewish section is well maintained with the graves in a tranquil setting amongst trees and greenery. It’s fairly easy to find individual graves if you have the plot number (recorded in the Jewish death records at the Staatsarchiv). Most of the graves have inscriptions in both Yiddish and German and date from the early C19th onwards.

    Some older graves have been brought from other cemeteries over the years and inscriptions are mainly in Yiddish on these.

    This place is a place of music history and couture. The Beatles played here and great new bands played here and are going to play here.

    Walking around St Georg in Hamburg whilst waiting for my train, came across the Hansabrunnen fountain in Hansaplatz.
    Large, well made and designed fountain in a pretty tree lined square.
    A few drunks / homeless people causing a disturbance, even on a Sunday afternoon - so please take care.
    Nice if you happen to be in the area.
