Old Elbe Tunnel was opened to the public back in 1911 and it was considered an engineering marvel of the world.
Back then, it was called the St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel due to the area where the tunnel is located, but, like the St. Pauli neighborhood, a lot has changed in the last years.
You can still see the tall gothic tower of St. Nicholas Church from almost anywhere in Hamburg. But this Gothic Revival church doesn’t mark the skyline of the city like it used to when it was the tallest construction on Earth, from 1874 to 1876. Nowadays, the church is the second-tallest structure in Hamburg and a memorial to everything that happened during the Second World War.
When we were researching things to do in Hamburg, a small museum caught our eye with a different proposal. Called Deutsches Zusatzstoffmuseum, the German Food Additives Museum is dedicated to explaining the use of various chemicals and other substances that are present in the food that we eat every day. If you have been following Fotostrasse for a while, you know that we like to explore unusual places, this small museum was precisely what we were looking for.
