Favorite thing: Gertrudenkirchhof is a small public square (on the site of St. Gertrude's chapel) just off the main pedestrian artery, Mönckebergstrasse. Here, color and shapes provide interest for what would otherwise be an undistinguished urban facade.
The roof was renovated(green part), and looks very interesting. My friend told me, the green parts will change into dark grey after some period of time. Then it will look much more harmony with other parts.
You can find many buildings renovated in this way in Hamburg.
I love these old Jugendstil houses and we have many of them in Eppendorf .
Here you see an old Jugendstil house built about 1900, located at the Isestraße where they also have a very nice market. If the fishmarket is too early for you you can visit the Isemarkt between U-Bahn Hoheluftbrücke and U-Bahn Eppendorfer Weg. The Isemarkt is every Tuesday and Friday from ~8.30 am to 1pm and mostly for locals who buy vegetables, fruits, cheese, fish and meet,
but I really love it and these types of houses are all around there.
A lot of nice churches can be seen there, also pretty Jugendstil-buildings (e.g. in HH-ROTHENBAUM!!!!)
Fondest memory: Many old buildings (1820-1910)
Favorite thing: Look respectfully to these old buildings with all its ornaments, Stuck-art and Jugendstil-paintings!
