    Hans Hummel at the Rathaus
    2 more images

    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.

    Art

    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.
