The tower of St. Michael's Church - the 'Michel' is a permanent part of Hamburg's skyline. Especially in the evening hours, you can take impressive photos of the tower in front of an orange sky. But the building's architecture is also impressive and reveals figures that one doesn't see at first glance.

The Hamburg Harbour has much more to offer than only photo motifs. From the huge behemoths that go in and out to load and unload to the gigantic cranes and numerous containers, you can capture quite a bit of Hamburg's flair on a a photo here.

Der Hamburger Hafen hat weit mehr als nur ein Fotomotiv zu bieten. Von den großen Pötten die vorbeziehen, um be- und entladen zu werden über die gigantischen Kräne und zahllosen Containern können Sie hier einiges an Hamburg-Flair auf einem Foto festhalten.

The symmetrical architecture of Hamburg's Chamber of Commerce is quite impressive. In particular, its imposing columns and entrance hall have been the background for any number of fashion shows. You too can pose between the huge columns for a 'fashion shoot'!

Hamburgs Handelskammer beeindruckt mit ihrer symmetrischen Architektur. Insbesondere die imposanten Säulen und die Eingangshalle sind schon Hintergrund für das ein oder andere Modefoto geworden. Posieren Sie doch selbst einmal zwischen den riesigen Säulen!

The 'Wasserschloss', or moated castle, is among the highlights in Hamburg's Speicherstadt. Especially at night, the small free-standing castle with its tower and ornamentation looks like it has come straight from a fairy tale. It offers the perfect photo motif for always remembering your visit in Hamburg's Speicherstadt.

One of the most distinctive buildings in Hamburg's Speicherstadt must be the Chilehaus with its pointed facade. Built in Brick Expressionism style, the building is now considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Especially when framed by a radiant sun and blue sky, a photo of the tip of the building impresses all viewers.

The Dockland is certainly one of Hamburg's most impressive office buildings. The form of the parallelogram shines directly onto the water in its splendour. From the observation deck on the top of the building, you have a spectacular view of the Hamburg Harbour.
