Public Art, Hamburg
Just as Berlin has its bears, Hamburg has its own colourful street character, Hans Hummel. The first thing you see when you exit the Hauptbahnhof at Steintorwall is six of these statues and you'll meet many more on Hamburg's streets, especially in the Altstadt.
I love Art! Yes music, painting, dance etc but the art I am talking about is a statue. There is just something about him.
Art is a bronze scuplture which sits out front of the Harburg Rathaus of a man playing the tuba. As to why I call him art I asked my friend when I moved here, "Is there a point?" and she said, "He is art." From then on the name stuck and he holds a special place in my heart.
This well by Engelbert Pfeiffer was erected in 1878 at Meßberg, the former market for fruits and vegetables. It reminds on the Vierländer, the main supplyiers of fruits and vegetable of those days. In 1975 the well was placed to the Hopfenmarkt.
