What... Hamburg Harbor (in Blue!)


If you follow me on twitter then you should know that last week Hamburg was displaying blue lights all around it's port and it continued on through Hamburg Cruise Days weekend too [Aug 1-3].. I was happy we were able to go over the weekend. Twice.
BLUE PORT HAMBURG (Jul 28 - Aug 3)

There was an official light up ceremony on July 28th but we were unable to attend, Avi and I were able to go to Saturday's event, there was a huge festival at the port. I took a ferry from finkenwerder and got off at Altona/Fischmarkt.
The creator of BLUE PORT HAMBURG is the international light artist Michael Batz. His award-winning light projects and concepts have been seen in Salzburg, Florence, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt and Berlin. Batz first made a name for himself with Blue Goals, the city-wide light installation he created to coincide with the 2006 World Cup. He staged his Blue Port Hamburg concept for the first time at the first Hamburg Cruise Days festival in 2008. This year was the fourth time the installation has been mounted.1

While walking around the port we got to see different cruise ships, between them:

we had a nice time, even though it was late and a lot of walking!
