June is an exceptional time of year to visit the north German city of Hamburg, as these urban G-E-M-S provide additional examples for the “Hansestadt” city.
It’s late June, and Sunday is relatively quiet in the city. Early summer days bring out the best in beautiful sunshine and the beautiful people.
At a latitude of 53 degrees North, 17 hours of daylight in late-June are accompanied by clear blue skies and warm temperatures. There’s lots to do in these summer conditions, including:
- Hop on a ferry on the Elbe river to see the activity around the Port of Hamburg
- Walk along the canals or the “Fleets” (in German)
- Take in an art exhibition at one of the museums along the Kunstmeile (Art Mile) Hamburg
- Ride a boat through the Fleets, the Speicherstadt (warehouse district), or through the Alster lakes
- Stop for a drink or a bite to eat in the busy and cozy Sternschanze neighborhood (in German)
I made all of the above photos on 26 and 27 June 2010. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-19g.
