Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg.

Hamburg, the second largest city of Germany.

Me and my friends, we made a tour through the center of Hamburg with a guide. I need to confess that I was a little skeptical at first, but by the moment we met our guide I knew it was going to be great. And so it was. He told us a lot of interesting stories that only made the walk more pleasant and every building we passed by had a story worth knowing.

After the walk with our guide, which was about 3h long, we climbed the tower of the St Michaels Church and had a stunning view over Hamburg and it’s harbor.

It was a very windy day, but with a lot of sunshine as you’ll see in my photos bellow.

 

[DE] Hamburg – Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg.

An dem zweten Tag hab ich meine Freunde die ich dort besucht hab, durch Hamburg spaziert mitt andere Leute und ein Reiseleiter. Ich hab mir nie gedacht das es so schön ist wenn man durch eine Stadt geht und auch die Gesichte der Gebäuden kennen lernt. Nicht nur die Gesichte der Gebäuden, sondarn auch des Landes und von den Menschen  die da leben.

Nach dem 3 Stunden langes Spaziergang,wier haben uns auf dem weg gemacht auch St Michaelis Hauptkirche um den Aussicht zu genießen aus den Turm der Kirche.

Es war ein sehr windiges Tag, aber wir hatten auch sehr viel Sonnenschein.

IMG_8378-001 watermark smallI almost had tears in my eyes when we got to this building. From what our guide told us, those who produced the gas Zyklone B came with the idea that the people in concentration camps could be killed more easily and faster with this gas. They trained the ones in charge how to asphyxiate the prisoniers and how to use Zyklone B.  None of us is guilty for what happened back then, but we should learn from the past and make sure it doesn’t happen again on our clock.

Prüfung

“Kein Mensch auf der ganzen Welt

Kann die Wahrheit verändern.

Man kann sie nur suchen,

Sie finder und ihr dienen.

Die Wahrheit ist an jedem Ort.”

Dietrich Bonhoeffer.

The ordeal

“No man in the whole world

can change the truth.

One can only look for the truth,

find it and serve it.

The truth is in all places.”

    1. My friend found this thing called “Free tour” and the guide doesn’t charge you, only at the end if you think he is worth it you can pay him and it’s up to you how much. This way the guides are giving their best 🙂

  1. Well, I never knew that I wanted to visit Hamburg … but now I do!
    Those sculptures are amazing ,,, and powerful.
    I too like to hear the story behind a photo, building, sculpture. Glad you enjoyed the tour.

  2. There are some great colors in your images, nice!
    That’s funny: last year I also visited friends in hamburg and it seems that I was at the same places like you. 😀
    I’m sure, you know what I mean, when I say, that I took a several hundred of photos.. but I sorted out some snapshots and uploaded it at G+. If you want to take a short look: http://goo.gl/9HNZpP
