    Second ride to Lübeck with some nice places in sunny weather.

    1. Travemünde, where the river Trave enters the baltic sea.
    I found a car park in front od an abandoned hospital:



    Afer a short walk through a park i arrived at the Passat habour where now in winter only the passat is present. All other boats are beached to prevent them from ice damage.



    Going somewhat closer with frogster also have a look at scenery:




    International touch with bi-langual access denied plate. Unfortunally the footbridge to the ship is under construction and i couldnt enter the ship as it is possible in general.
    The ships riveted hull was repaired with welded-on patches many years ago and is brittle now. so this ship will not go to sea anymore except an wealthy supporter pops up for extended repairs.




    readon in part 2!

    part 3:

    There is still the chirstmas market on the main Lübeck market place beside the city hall:




    And because of so many fans, the Niederegger marzipan flagstore and some displays made of marzipan:






    And finally some culture, the Buddenbrookhaus, an Thomas Mann exhibition (just for you, Deepsea_Dweller! )

    Awesome d2mac. Simply a terrific sightseeing tour. Now we know Luebeck and the surroundings a little better. Great shots of the Holstentor, the old city harbour and yes of course the Buddenbrookhaus. Big thanks for that. Appreciated and thanks for sharing Great post aus Norddeutschland

    Last trip of the frogster here in north Germany.
    I took the Frogster as an excusion to do a trip to Germanys second largest city, Hamburg.

    I arrived in the old warehouse area which is called Speicherstadt and made a walk in direction of the floating peers "Landungsbrücken" where all the touristic ship travel is at home.




    A Frogster watching at the Hamburg habor follys.



    Older habor round trip boats in standby:



    Look back to the warehouse quarter:



    Just another historic fireship, boring!



    50s museum ship Cap San Diego, very stylish! Compare this to todays boxy merchant ships....



    Just another big sailing ship, boring. :D





    Frogster and me entering the habor ferry to make a short trip down the river Elbe:



    Look from the ferry to floating peer, Mississippi style tourist boat in front. Dont know who decided to have one of those here.



    Some photos from the journey down the Elbe:







    Arrival at the museum habor, i left the ferry here and drove back to the city by bus:







    Back at the Landungsbrücken i visited the old river tunnel which is build 1910 and is still operating. Cars have to enter the tunnel by elevator!




    Look down the elevator shaft (with stairs for pedestrians):



    Car elevator misused for pedetrians and bikers, the guy with the white hat is the operator.



    Tunnel tube (one of two, the other one is currently under refurbishḿent).



    Frogster in front of the car elevator.



    Sun down impressions from the habor:




    Then something very special, the Hamburg adult entertainment area "Reeperbahn".
    Since here is almost every Adult to Adult Entertainment legal, its very hard to make a photo which is compliant to forum rules. 8-)



    Anyhow, i hope this low resolution photo of a less explicit display gives a picture. :)



    Some old advertising for a defunct club:



    Time to go back to the car and cool down my burning feet!

    Thank you d2mac for all these great shots- great job! Must have been rather cold... I enjoyed every picture, and the shots of the Niederegger store made me smile! And hungry, too.
