This is a blogpost I’ve been waiting to do until I had enough photos to make it make a bit of sense. Not that this blog always makes much sense. What’d be the point of that?
No point, I tell you.
Just like other major German cities, Hamburg has both an U-Bahn and S-Bahn system. Most of the time, the U-Bahn system is underground, but like Boston’s T or Chicago’s Elevated, Hamburg has what’s called a ‘Hochbahn‘. All over the city in the U-Bahn stations, there are auld photos of the 100-year old Hochbahn. I’ll include those in a future post.
Here’s my favourite train station in Hamburg:
This art deco train station is on the S-Bahn line, which as Wikipedia describes, is a, ‘…city centre and suburban metro like railway system in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Denmark.’
This photo has nothing to do with the Hochbahn, but I liked it and I decided it was going in this blogpost. It’s my blog. If you don’t like it, get your own damned blog.
I miss living in a city where there is fancy public transportation. It always made me feel like I was living in a movie. Here, we have a bus system. Which I can’t for the life of me figure out. And, from what I hear from my friends who’ve taken it, I don’t want to, because it’s kind of scary.
Your blog ALWAYS makes sense. You just have to think like a Lahikmajoe. It’s a whole other skill set, like playing an instrument, or underwater basketweaving.
I miss Hamburg!
so different from NYC
I miss Hamburg soooooo much
Well, go back there.
