This is a winterly view over the city of Hamburg, taken one year ago. We went up to the top of the Nikolaikirche ruin. The church was bombed and destroyed in 1945 (as was most of the city), with only the tower remaining. It now serves as an excellent place to take a look at Hamburg from above.
This is the view to the east. You can see the offices of the Spiegel magazine right in the middle right (black building and smaller grey tower beside). Behind is what seems to be another great possibility to take a large view, a balloon hanging on a rope.
