    Good grief! Can you stop putting Frogster always so close to the water?! One wrong move, it's the end of the trip. I don't think it knows how to swim, LOL.

    Just kidding, absolutely fantastic photos!! Thank you.

    I took the Frogster as an exclusion 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 heat 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!

    Ein ganz dickes Lob an Dich d2mac. Fantastische Photos! Special thanks from Hong Kong and gotta show your shots to a couple of Hamburg Expatriates here. They gonna love it. Well done and big thanks for your dedication, your great effort and your time. Fabulous post since day one You have represented Northern Germany and the Hanseatic Cities very well. Thanks once again Safe trip to Mainz!

    Thats not my fault!
    I had the will power to just take photos (and the store was over-crowded). 8)

    That's awesome. If I wasn't afraid I'd have to pay customs duties I'd be up for it. Will be watching your thread though.

    I dont think that customa might be a real problem.
    The value of an 10y old digital watch cant be that high, so you will have some cents of duties or nothing (here there is a several hundert euro treshhold for incoming goods c2c).

    Re: Poorman's Frogman DW-295 World Tour

    There are shiploads of US citizens floating the city since criusing ships stop here very often.
    I heard a lot of american-english on my Hamburg trip since my choice of sights is also listed in every tour guide, see chapter "insider tip" :-D

    So your in good company by visiting Hamburg!

    Here it's whatever the guy on duty says it is that day. I don't take chances with this stuff anymore. The only threshold is how pissed off they are when they come to work in the morning.
