Travel: Hamburg, Germany 2016

Following on from visiting Berlin back in May, next up was a quick trip to Hamburg for 1.5 days. It’s only a two hour trip on the train, and I’d booked a really cute room in an apartment off Air Bnb that was basically the German replica of my house in Melbourne that was right across the road from the main train station.

In comparison to Berlin, Hamburg seemed pretty tiny, and I felt like two days was probably enough. The Warehouse District was easily my favourite to photograph, and I ticked ‘something creepy’ off the list by checking out the Panoptikum wax museum (recommended by Atlas Obscura, a great travel website for all things weird). As a graphic designer, I love looking at all the signage and typography in a new city, and I found the nicest typography was in Hamburg. The crypt of St Michael’s church had some really beautiful hand drawn script on the graves, and there were lots of signs around the city using the Fraktur typeface.

Here’s some of my favourite shots from my short time in Hamburg. It was a bit wet and a bit dark when I was there, but a cool city worth checking out if you’re in Germany, because it’s very different to both Berlin and Munich.

All photos were shot with my Nikon D800 and Nikon 14-24mm f2.8 lens. If you’d like to see more you can view them on my Flickr.
