Hamburg basically looks good in anything – but autumn sets it off particularly well. You've confirmed that once again in the past few weeks with your fantastic #autumnahoi photos. How did they come out? Well, here are some examples.
Autumn is the artist among the seasons. Every twelve months, its appearance produces rapt amazement, its colourplays deliver weeks of ecstatic oohs and aahs – especially when it's as lovely as here in our city. Because cool-and-withdrawn Hamburg looks its best in the autumn: harsh softens down a little, grey is bathed in picturesque colour.
Last year and again this year, we asked you to show us the Hamburg autumn from your own personal perspective – by which of course we mean through the lens of your camera, that goes without saying. We wanted to be with you when you breathed the wonderful, clear city air in the early morning among mystical swathes of morning mist, strolled among rustling leaves on a Sunday and succumbed to the enchantment of romantic puddles and golden light in Hamburg's parks and malls.
Now that the trees are gradually turning bare and the days getting ever shorter, we want to say: we're so thrilled you took us with you! Thanks to you, just under 1,400 Instagram images can now be found under the #autumnahoi hashtag. We've put together a few especially picturesque motifs from 2017 for you here – sort of a last round of applause for the artist before he leaves the stage. See you soon, Hamburg autumn!
