I love bridges and fortunate Hamburg has about 2,500 of them, which is more than Venice and Amsterdam together and this makes it one of the most bridges in Europe. The bridges characterize the cityscape of Hamburg and have a strong symbolic character for me. They connect two shores with one another or make a street where else one would have to end and are often architectonic masterpieces that speak for themselves. The effect of a bridge is strengthened in my view when a dense fog occurs in the autumn, which fades out all the details in the background and floats the building for a few hours and makes the urban scenes appearing melancholic.
