For several weeks now, Hamburg's city center has been blooming in the most beautiful colors that nature has to offer. You can now stroll between fragrant flowers, shady trees and artistic exhibitions in public spaces. Last Saturday, the middle of the Neuer Wall was closed to private traffic from midday. The pedestrians were happy about more space for shopping. Helpful bellboys also asked for help with shopping, such as when a bag should be carried. Colorful folding chairs offered a welcome break between the shops.
