Hamburg, Germany - 5th February 2012

By: ScillyHH

Hi mum,

Today we visited Hamburg harbour. We had sunshine and the the river Elbe was full of ice.
See me on Wilhelm-bridge (Speicherstadt Hamburg).

This is an old custom house in the Speicherstadt.

See me in front of the Elbphilarmonie which is currently beeing built. It is going to be a concert hall.

This is an old lighthouse ship which is now used as a café.

We took a ride on a harbour ferry.

On our way we saw this Mississippi steamer and the old freid ship Cap San Diego.

After our boat trip I was asked if I wanted to see the old Elbtunnel.
I said "Yes of course" and here are the pictures.

The Elbtunnel was build more than hundred years ago for pedestrian, cyclists and cars and connects the harbour and the city of Hamburg.

You can go down by stairs... or use the elevator.

Here you can see the road in the tunnel.

This sign explains the unevenness of the Tunnel.

Cars have to go up and down by lift. Look at me taking charge of the car lift  ;)
