Hamburg Harbor Tour
Sunday afternoon we took a boat tour of the harbor. (A two hour tour...)
Here is the Rickmer Rickmers again, this time seen from the water.
This is one of the largest dry docks in the world, and is capable of holding the largest class of cruise ships such as the Queen Mary.
This is one of the large floating dry docks in the harbor.
Here are some tugs.
And a Russian submarine.
This is the lightship Elbe 3, a mobile lighthouse.
Tugs pull and guide a large container ship.
Here is another large container ship. I like the closeup photo of the stern showing containers stacked six high.
Huge empty spools on another large cargo ship.
Large cranes load and unload container ships.
This building is shaped like a parallelogram.
Here is another picture of the uncompleted Philharmonic building.
Finally, the penthouse of this building is (reputedly) the most expensive apartment in Hamburg.
