the metro line u3 is the jewel among hamburg's public transportation system. it is designed as an orbital line that is operating in the centre of hamburg and goes around both the inner and outer alster lake. the main peculiarity of the u3 line is that it runs mainly on the surface on dams so that you are able to enjoy the wonderful routing alongside the elbe river.
today's picture shows the beginning of the part of the route that runs directly parallel to the elbe and leads exactly towards the impressive container port that is the second biggest in europe after rotterdam. you can divine the huge harbour installations on the horizon. every tourist should visit the harbour and usually they also do so.
the interesting circular building in front of the bend hosts the portuguese restaurant galego. besides horrible service bad value for money wait for you. please avoid this place although its location would be worth the visit and stop by at another place.
