Short Trip: Hamburg

During the last two days five friends and me spend our time in Hamburg. The trip was a birthday gift to one of our friends.
I have to say that I totally fell in love with that city. Every district has its own charme and charisma.
May it be the Speicherstadt, the downtown or the Reeperbahn. It doesn't matther which time or day it is, Hamburg is alive all the time.
Downtown has beautiful classic architecture and every kind of brands with flagship stores. Expensive cars next to expensive dressed people which spend their money in those neat boutiques.
You can spend your whole night on Reeperbahn, you pass pub after club after pub after club. But actually it doesn't matter which one you pick, every pub offers the same. Tourists pass whores, amusements of every sort overwhelm you.  The nightlife is intense.
The Speicherstadt shows another side of Hamburg. Brick buildings rise above the river and canal system. Modern dekonstructive buildings break up those heavy buildings and create a great contrast.

Unfortunately I didn't take my Canon with me so you have to content yourself with shitty IPhone quality.
The trip to Hamburg definitely was a nice ending for the year 2012, in that way I also wish you a happy new year, may 2013 be nice to you!
