Hamburger Hafen

Hamburger Hafen

Like the Artemis, the Cap San Diego doesn't really have an interesting history but, also like the Artemis, it is a nice looking ship. The San Diego is now a museum owned by the city of Hamburg itself and you can stay overnight on it, if you wish.

Behind the ship, on the docks, you can see some of the waterfront construction that was going on when I was there in June of 2011. It seemed there were construction cranes everywhere. That biggest building is really interesting because it has these windows with very irregular openings in them. It almost looks like the glass has melted and holes have opened up.

If you take a harbour boat tour, you can see all of that for yourself. It's worth it. Taking about an hour, you get to see the old port in the historic area as well as the giant new portions with the tremendous amount of cargo that goes through the port of Hamburg.

Actually, the whole city is really cool so I do suggest you go and check it out.

My other photographs from Hamburg - only some of other ships and photos from the Miniatur Wunderland so far - can be found in the gallery.
