After sharing some of my favourite masterpieces with you, I will now show you a beautiful part of my hometown, Hamburg. The “Speicherstadt” (for those who don’t know it) consists of brick-lined buildings which were used as warehouses in the past. The goods that were stored there were mainly coffee, tea, spices and carpets. Nowadays some of the buildings are still used as warehouses, but there are also different kinds of museums, restaurants and offices.

Church spires are an important part of Hamburg’s cityscape. The first picture shows the town’s landmark, the “Michel”.
