There are many pics of Hannover in my photobucket:
There you also find pics of the not so beautiful parts (want to be honest) and pics of how Hannover used to look like before the WWII (before and after pics).
Of course Hannover is not a breathtakingly beautiful town but I really get angry if people say it's ugly because it's clearly not. People shouldn't judge the whole city if they only know the shopping area which is quite ugly indeed but still one of the most livliest in Germany.
Maybe it's not the greatest town to visit but it's a great town to live in imo. Lot of things to do, a wonderful football club, great quarters like List and Linden, a lot of green and water.
Lots of my friends from the university are not from Hannover and they were really surprised when the came here because Hanover's image isn't that great.
Most even want to stay here.
I think the bridge you posted is the "Oberbaumbrücke" between Kreuzberg and Friedrichshain. I've just been there on Saturday and we got off at Warschauer Strasse. Shame upon me, but it was my first visit ever in Berlin (been to the US 7 or 8 times, but couldnt make it to the Hauptstadt...) and I really, really liked it!
Some Hamburg pics:
Rathaus Altona (5 min walk from where I live)
Behold one of the greatest cathedrals in the world:
some nice panorama pics here
trainstation, one of europes busiest
FRA, rhein-main-airport, 7th biggest in the world
fairgrounds and messeturm
"eiserner steg"-bridge, cathedral in background
and YES, we DO like our Applewine... good stuff
So, my photobucket is public now, you should be able to see the pics now:
Oberbaumbrücke! Thats it! Thanks Daniel! BTW...your pictures of Hamburg make me want to go back up there and visit one more time before I go home....what a beautiful city...ahh the Landungsbrücke, the Rathaus!
Guys, I'm literally sitting here in tears looking at those photos and missing Deutschland.
Thanks a lot for sharing them!
Just do it Only a 3 hour drive And drop me a message if you do so.
btw when do you go back to the states?
I feel the same way when I'm out of the country and see photos of Inverclyde (the district Greenock is in.) I love threads like these.
Siegessäule- I was naked in the Tiergarten quite near this monument (I think it commemorates a victory in the Franco-Prussian War, not 100% sure) about 4 yrs ago to the day.
I love the Frankfurt skyline! Skyscrapers, quite rare in Europe.
Naked? Someone had too much to drink
Frankfurt airport...if there is a better airport than that and Hong Kong, I would have to call you ignorant.
Not anymore. Just not as many of them as there are here.....
oh I thought changi airport in singapore was fantastic... last time i went anyway. I had to wait for 8h for a transfer to vancouver and there was so much shopping and eating available it wasn't funny.
I went to the Honky one more recently en route to Taiwan and it seemed very very modern... really streamline and speck-clean.
Frankfurt I've not been to though dad goes there every year to get to munich and other places and he said it is pretty good yeah.
BTW, the first Skyskraper (doesn't qualify as such anymore, but still) built in Germany... The Hanoverian Anzeiger Hochhaus
Plus the Gehry Tower Hanover, nice piece of modern architecture
the other thing that our hansfan titled as frightening is actually the Nord LB building (not the3 nicest pick though, I'll try to make some when I am around and'll post em here.
There's a pic of it in my photobucket (page 2).
It's a building you either love or hate, it's certainly not boring.
I quite like it though and I think it fits good where it has been built.
This thing is beeing build right now across the street to it.
Moved (with redirect) from the Germany forum.
It is quite nice. I believe Frankfurt is the financial capital of Germany.
I think it's actually considered the financial capital of Europe, isn't it??
