ABC Wednesday: Hamburg – Germany


ABC Wednesday : H for Hamburg in Germany.
More participants here
The city was a major center of the heavy metal music world in the 1980s.
Bands such as Helloween, Running Wild and Grave Digger started their careers in Hamburg.
The influences of these and other bands from the area were critical 
and huge to establishing the sub-genre of power metal.

  1. I have been to Hamburg, but it was a long time ago. Love this fresh look!

    My mother-in-law is in town from Germany. We have been showing her around Jackson. So far, she loves it! But I don't have much time for blogging. 🙂

    Hugs!

  2. Hamburg and the Hansa had great influence in Norway for four hundred years, so for us it is a Highly Important H.

    PS You forgot to mention Hamburg's greatest influence – the Hamburger… 🙂

  3. Well, I could tell you more about the Hanseatic history (the HH you might have noticed on the car registration numbers = Hansestadt Hamburg) but not about Che Guevara!

  4. What a great post for the H Day! I love Hamburg and your photos are terrific! I do remember the Beatles there and heavy metal music as well. A city with a lot of history — musical and otherwise! Have a great day/evening!!

  6. I was just going to say about the Beatles when I saw your ps at the end.

    The only thing I know about Hamburg is that for the foreseeable future you will be stuck in traffic if travelling from Bremen! So I have yet to see that city.

  9. I didn't know that Hamburg was such a beautiful city! I saw it once when I was travelling from Denmark to Holland, so I didn't have a chance to walk around. Thanks for sharing!

  12. Allow me to thank you first of all for these great pictures of my home town. It was indeed a joy to see. Amazing as well, as we took the same ones of Che, made me search whether I find meself in the background 😉 Seems as if we shared the same time in the city.
    Hopefully you carry only happy memories of the city. Please have you all a good Wednesday.

  13. Hamburg looks like a wonderful place However I don't like Che. A German website said the statue was put there by the “young liberals” political party.

    Vicki's parents are on vacation in Germany. I think they're in Weimar right now. 🙂

  14. What a great collection of eclectic buildings! You have piqued my interest in Hamburg with all these tidbits of information…and your wonderful photos, of course!

    Che became a symbol for many oppressed people – rightly or wrongly, but I have no idea of any connection with Hamburg.

    What about hamburgers? 🙂

  15. Hi Leia – Re your comment on Cedar Key…those “things” you mentioned are not critters at all, but blobs of mud…and I don't know how they get there – perhaps critters in the water or mud build them… 🙂

  16. I love this idea…you can ABC Wednesday your way thru Europe (3 or 4 times over even!!!)
    Hamburg looks like a very stately and serious city. Nice to know that it's got a more quirky side.
