A visual tour of old Hamburg
City views from around 1900

7 June to 21 January 2018

The appearance of the city underwent some dramatic changes at that time. From a city with narrow alleyways and crooked timber-framed houses surrounded by city walls, a new Hamburg developed and grew beyond the old borders of the city, with wide streets, impressive shops and a modern infrastructure. Many artists of the time were fascinated by the city on the Elbe river and captured it in often romantic, and occasionally humorous depictions.
