Hamburg: Big and green

Hamburg is the city of Gothic brick and brick expressionism because until well into the 20th century brick was used as a traditional building material. Beautiful examples are Speicherstadt, a large complex of warehouses from the 19th century built on stilts, and the 20th century Kontorhausviertel.
