GERMANY ~ Nikolaifleet - Hamburg ~

... Beautiful view of the half-timbered houses and birthplace of Hamburg Port... Europe's third-largest port with even more canals than Venice... the city hosted the twelfth G20 Summit on the 7th and 8th of July... it was the scene of violent protests, with thousands of demonstrators... but despite grand declarations, it has achieved relatively little ☹... with great matching stamp and unique G20 Summit postmark... Thanks a lot Dustin!! ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Hamburg, Germany's second largest city, is one of the most important ports in the world, a fact which has long guaranteed its economic and cultural independence.

Nikolaifleet is a canal in the Altstadt of Hamburg, which was the original branch of the Alster estuary. It separates the Cremon island from the mainland. First mentioned in 1188, the Nikolaifleet is considered one of the oldest parts of the Port of Hamburg.
