Those, who live in Hamburg, claim it is the most beautiful city in the world. Those, who don’t (like myself) say, it is a very nice city.

I take off from Fuhlsbuettel airport

Always worth a visit is the old “Speicherstadt” (City of Warehouses). It is the largest warehouse district in the world where the buildings stand on timber-pile (oak logs) foundations. The warehouses were built from 1883 to 1927 as a free zone to transfer goods without paying customs.

At its entrance stands the newly constructed concert hall “Elbphilharmony” (Elbe Philharmonic Hall)

The yellow, purpose-built, tent-like construction is for some time already home to the Lion King Musical. The white freighter with the red bridge top to the right side of the plane is the “Cap San Diego”, a general cargo ship, constructed in 1961. She is now fully restored and is kept fully operational by a dedicated museum team. Several times a year, the ship leaves the harbor for trips on her own power, mostly on the river Elbe or to Cuxhaven. In 2001, the ship was awarded the Maritime Heritage Award by the World Ship Trust.

Here is a better picture of it

A bit further down the river Elbe you come across this ugly wharf building. For some time now it is home to a mega yacht, owned by a Russian oligarch, who had it sent there for maintenance. She is still there and as it looks, she is not going anywhere

These are the “St. Pauli Piers”. Built in 1839, they form today a central transportation hub, with S-Bahn, U-Bahn and ferry stations. They also serve as a major tourist magnet with numerous restaurants and departure points for harbor pleasure boats.

Further down the Elbe sits the German Airbus arm in “Hamburg-Finkenwerder”

Until a ship reaches the North Sea, it has to travel from Hamburg some 105 km (65 mi)

Thanks for viewing.

Thanks for the tour!  Most of what I know about Hamburg comes from the various OMSI addons that I've spent hours driving with.

Flugschule Uetersen makes sightseeing flights close to yours. Usually they take off from Uetersen but for an additional payment they go from EDDH Fuhlsbütttel. We made such a flight just a week ago and it was really nice. I found the harbor the most impressive part, and there's a great MSFS freeware Hamburg harbor scenery available from Simdocks (not PG but hand-made).

Kind regards, Michael
