Port city

Yet another city, unrecognizable as one, after the war, heavily rebuilt. It is the major port of Germany and handles a lot of trade since a long long time. Hamburg is also famous for its breads and fish dishes.

The Rathaus of Hamburg

In this church, the part where people congregates for prayers is no longer there.
But this is one of the few churches of Hamburg, which wasn't completely destroyed in the war.

The warehouses that deal with goods from the port

Elbe Tunnel, a 1 km long tunnel, through the bottom of the river bed, that allows passage of vehicles as well, which are lowered and raised by huge lifts.

Unfortunately, the fish take the whole week off, and present themselves in the market only on Sundays, since the past 300 years.
