From a brief visit to Hamburg almost three years ago … this is the clock tower at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church. I can tell you it’s a long climb to the top — great cardio exercise at the very least, rewarded with nice views if you like that sort of thing.
When I can swing it, I pick a church tower and climb the stairs to some kind of observation deck at the top. The effort is usually rewarded with such a commanding view as this one in Hamburg, Germany, captured in August 2014.
Just a lazy, warm Sunday afternoon in Hamburg. It was definitely shorts weather that day back in the beginning of August, with the temperature hitting a high of 30 degrees C … except I hadn’t changed into my shorts.
