St. Nicolai

Eines Tages in der letzten Woche mache ich mich auf,
ein altes Gebäude in Hamburg zu finden...

One day last week I head off to find an old building in Hamburg...

...and I find St. Nicolai... the ruin of a neo-Gothic church.

Der Turm steht... mit 147,88 m Höhe in der Liste der höchsten Sakralbauten an fünfter Stelle! Mit einem gläsernen Fahrstuhl fahre ich zu einer Plattform in Höhe von 76 m...

The tower stands... and lie fifth with its high about 147,88 m/485 ft on the list for highest sacral buildings! I take the glass lift to the platform in a high of 76 m/249 ft..

und genieße die Aussicht... and enjoy the view

Leider kann ich wegen Baugerüst und Plane den Hafen kaum sehen 

Sadly I can't see the Harbour because of scaffold and plastic 

... fahre wieder runter und 
finde den Brunnen mit der Veerlander Deern von Engelbert Peiffer.

... drive down again and find the fountain with the 'Veerlander Deern'... market girl by Engelbert Peiffer a German sculptor .

Happy Birthday, dear Carole
Have a nice day!

And now I come along to your mood board.. and yours... looking forward to it :)
