    It's enormous!
    Looks like it occupies a good portion of a city block?

    Well, here there are no real "blocks" like you find them in American cities. The streets go round it and bend and form curves and whatnot. But if there WERE real blocks, this building would possibly form one block of its own. I'm glad I could finally explore it, but I think I'll return when the weather is nicer. Will make the bricks show even better, I think.

    Jake, on the website on Chile-House (www.chilehouse-hamburg.de)* I found a map for you which nicely depicts how the building is embedded into the web of streets in that area of the city:

    [​IMG]

    You see the building marked in red just above Ost-West-Strasse.
    This map also shows nicely where I spent large part of my photographic excursion into Hamburg last Friday: I also photographed the water (blue ribbon below "Dowenfleet", the area around "Markthalle" and "Deichtorhallen" and the Main Railway Station (look for the "U" and the "S" and the "DB" signs around a building called "Hbf.-Nord"). I'll soon show you some more piccies, ok.

    *This site also shows you some (unfortunately better than mine) additional photos of Chile-House, including some of the interior, if you click your way there, searching for words such as either "Fotos" or "Foto-Galerie" (don't remember which). Happy browsing.
