    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    picture taken from my Gm��nd-page !

    I have not been in this museum yet, but I found an article about this interesting car-museum, that shows mainly prototypes of Porsche and also a few other cars and most of them you will hardly ever see in any other carmuseum. I will certainly visit it next time in Hamburg !
    This museum is not very far from the train-station and quite close to the cruise-port and the Eisenbahn - Miniaturland - see it in the map of my link below !
    The adress is: Shanghaiallee 7 | Beim Lohseplatz D-20457 Hamburg
    In case you have a GPS:
    GPS Koordinaten: 53° 32' 35.85"N - 10° 0' 8.75"E

    In my photo: a Porsche Spyder from the Porsche-Museum in Gmünd/Austria , the place where the very first Porsche-cars were built !

Big stones build the fundament of a tower. It has been thought, that this maybe the remains of the stonehouse of Bishop Bezelin-Alebrand (around 1035). Now the stone fundament can be seen in the souterain of the building, where the office of St Petri is. It is opposit of St Petri and the Domplatz. It can be visited. Entrace-fee is 1 Euro

    Ernst Barlach Museum

    by nepalgoods Written Apr 25, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Jenischpark, a beautiful landscape garden at the outskirts of Hamburg in Klein Flottbek, is the location of the Ernst-Barlach-Museum, which opened in 1962 as aprivate museum. Attractively embedded in the spacious site on the banks of the River Elbe, the modern, light-flooded museum building houses a unique collection. Numerous key works by the expressionist sculptor, graphic artist and writer Ernst Barlach (1870–1938) are on view here, among them nearly a third of his precious wood sculptures.

    In addition to various presentations of the collection and temporary exhibitions of Classical Modern and contemporary art, the Ernst Barlach Haus also offers a diverse programme: guided tours, talks, lectures and the concert series Klang & FORM.

    I think, that his works after World War 1 are the most impressive works:
    "From 1927, Barlach designed several monumental works for public spaces. In his memorials and monuments for the victims of the First World War, he found fundamental new forms of collective commemoration. His demonstrative decision to forgo hero cult and an unbroken pathos caused him to become the target of nationalist defamation campaigns; until his death in 1938 he was hounded by the National Socialists as a “degenerate” artist. Despite massive attacks Barlach remained imperturbable: He publicly advocated freedom of thought and artistic expression and persevered with his work. Marginal figures in society – the needy, the broken, the outcast – remained the focus of his art. In radical opposition to the fascist ideology of “community”, he turned to address the existential loneliness of the individual.

    After the end of the Second World War, Barlach was quickly rehabilitated in Germany. His œuvre has long been regarded as an important contribution to 20th century art – and it still remains a challenge today." Quotation from the website of the museum.

    It can be easily reached from S-Bahn-Station Klein Flottbeck
    Admission ist € 6,- for adults

    OPENING HOURS
    Tuesday to Sunday (also Monday on public holidays) 11 am – 6 pm
    Closed on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve

    The museum closes at 5 pm on Sundays when Klang & FORM concerts are held.
    Ticket sales and entry for concert visitors from 5:30 pm

    Museum der Arbeit - museum of work

    by Airpunk Written May 17, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Museum der Arbeit in Barmbek

    The Museum der Arbeit (museum of work) is normally not on the "to do" list among Hamburg visitors, but quite interesting anyway. It shows how workplaces have changed through the centuries. The focus lies on sea trade business, fishing, printing and the role of women and men at work. One floor is reserved for special temporary exhibitions.

    Audioguides are available in german and english, but written information at the objects is only available in german. The audioguides are included in the entrance fee.

    The museum is located in a building which belonged to a fabric complex of the New-York-Hamburger Gummi-Waaren Compagnie, a company which made plastic products. The remaning fabric buildings now form a cultural meeting point, including cafés and places for different kind of events. The museum itself also contains a library focusing on work and society.

    To the museum is only a few steps away from Barmbek subway and metro station. Use the exit towards "Wiesendamm" to get to the museum.

    Museumshafen

    Museumshafen ��velg��nne

    In Neumühlen/Övelgönne you can find the Museumshafen (museum harbor). It is just a little marina type place with a couple of old boats and ships there. I am not even sure, if you have to pay to get onto them, I just remember going there every once in awhile and usually having some cake and coffee there....!

    You can either walk from the Altona train station, or take a bus or the boat to Neumühlen.
