Hamburg

What is Hamburg known for?


innovative architecture

require the innovative architecture befitting the "new Athens"; as such, a team of academics was sent out on an international expedition to visit the finest universities in Europe and North America, to combine the best of both continents and design the utopian academic setting. Mssr.'s López Otero, Cásares Gil, Dr. Simonena, Del Amo, and Julio Palácios, amongst others, set about a whirlwind tour which took them to 19 universities in the American northeast, as well as to Paris, Lyon, Oxford, Berlin, Hamburg, and numerous other European cities, all in an effort to discern the best possible building structure. The architectural tendencies of the era, however, ended up having a greater influence than the academics' visits to Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, La Sorbonne or the University of Berlin; while the final plans from this period are hardly recognizable to anyone familiar with the contemporary campus, the buildings from the era that managed to survive the design revisions, the Civil War and the Franco regime, betray the period's fondness for the German Bauhaus movement. Indeed, the original buildings, exemplary amongst them the Schools of Medicine, Pharmacy and Odontology, are a paean to structural functionalism and the graceful utilitarianism of the 1920s. Geography Husum is located by the North Sea; 82 km W of Kiel, 139 km NW of Hamburg and 43 km SW of Flensburg. Infrastructure Husum station (Husum (Germany) station) is located on the Westerland (Westerland, Germany)–Hamburg line (Marsh Railway), the Husum–Bad St. Peter-Ording line (Husum–Bad St. Peter-Ording railway) to the Eiderstedt peninsula and the Husum–Jübek line (Husum–Kiel railway), which connects to the Neumünster–Flensburg line (Neumünster–Flensburg railway) and Kiel. Britain refused to remove troops from Egypt or Malta as agreed upon in the treaty. Kagan, p. 42 Bonaparte formally protested the continuing British occupations, and in January 1803 published a report by Horace Sebastiani (Horace François Bastien Sébastiani de La Porta) that included observations on the ease with which France might capture Egypt, alarming most of the European powers. Grainger, p. 153 In an interview in February 1803 with Lord Whitworth (Charles Whitworth, 1st Earl Whitworth), the UK's French ambassador, Bonaparte threatened war if Malta was not evacuated, and implied that he could have already retaken Egypt. Kagan, p. 43 The exchange left Whitworth feeling he was given an ultimatum. In a public meeting with a group of diplomats the following month, Bonaparte again pressed Whitworth, implying that the British wanted war since they were not upholding their treaty obligations. The Russian ambassador, Arkadiy Ivanovich Morkov, reported this encounter back to St. Petersburg in stark terms; the implicit and explicit threats contained in the exchange may have played a role in Russia's eventual entry into the Third Coalition. Kagan, p. 44 Morkov also reported rumors that Bonaparte would seize Hamburg as well as Hanover (Electorate of Hanover) if war was renewed. Kagan, p. 46 Although Alexander wanted to avoid war, this news apparently forced his hand; he began collecting troops on the Baltic (Baltic Sea) coast in late March. Kagan, pp. 46-8. The Russian foreign minister wrote of the situation, "The intention already expressed by the First Consul of striking blows against England wherever he can, and under this pretext of sending his troops into Hanover and Northern Germany... entirely transforms the nature of this war as it relates to our interests and obligations." Kagan, p. 49 Important towns are Hamburg and Itzehoe to the south, Husum to the north, and Kiel and Rendsburg to the east. The main roads and rail lines in Schleswig-Holstein follow a north-south direction, making Hamburg its most accessible city. On 12 February 1832, the first case of cholera was reported in London at Limehouse. First described in India in 1817, it had spread here via Hamburg. Although 800 people died during this epidemic, fewer than had died of tuberculosis in the same year, cholera visited again in 1848 and 1858.

Exhibitions of exotic populations became popular in various countries in the 1870s. Human zoos could be found in Paris, Hamburg, Antwerp, Barcelona, London, Milan, New York, and Warsaw with 200,000 to 300,000 visitors attending each exhibition. In Germany, Carl Hagenbeck, a merchant in wild animals and future entrepreneur of many European zoos, decided in 1874 to exhibit Samoan (Samoans) and Sami people as "purely natural" populations. In 1876, he sent a collaborator to the Egyptian Sudan to bring back some wild beasts and Nubians. The Nubian exhibit was very successful in Europe and toured Paris, London, and Berlin. He also dispatched an agent to Labrador to secure a number of Esquimaux (Eskimo) (Inuit) from the settlement of Hopedale; these Inuit were exhibited in his Hamburg Tierpark.

. The recitative in his operas was always in German so the audience could follow the plot, but from ''Claudius'' in 1703 he began to include arias in Italian which allowed for florid vocal display. The hallmark of the Hamburg style was its eclecticism. ''Orpheus (Orpheus (Telemann))'' (1726) by Telemann Another prolific composer, Telemann began to eclipse Keiser as the leading opera composer in Hamburg from 1717. contains arias in Italian setting texts taken from famous Handel operas as well as choruses in French to words originally set by Lully. Hamburg opera might also include comic characters (Keiser's ''Der Carneval von Venedig'' of 1707 has them speaking in the local Lower Saxon dialect), marking a great contrast to the elevated new style of opera seria as defined by Metastasio. Yet the immediate future belonged to Italian opera. The most famous German-born opera composer of the era, Handel, wrote four operas for Hamburg at the beginning of his career but soon moved on to write opera seria in Italy and England. Only one of Handel's German-language operas, ''Almira'', survives in a reasonably intact state. In 1738, the Theater am Gänsemarkt went bankrupt and the fortunes of serious opera in German went into decline for the next few decades.

Leipzig collegia musica, consisting mostly of university students, enjoyed a succession of particularly illustrious directors, including Johann Kuhnau (1688 (1688 in music)), Telemann (1702 (1702 in music)), and Bach (1729 (1729 in music)–1737 (1737 in music)), who composed several concertos and dramme per musica (dramma per musica) for weekly performances at Zimmerman's coffeehouse and for "extraordinary" concerts. Telemann went on to promote professional concerts by Frankfurt and Hamburg collegia in the late 1720s, thus fostering the emergence of public subscription concerts in Germany. With the Moravian emigration, American (USA) collegia sprang up beginning in 1744 (1744 in music) in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, and the Carolina (The Carolinas)s. * Collegium Musicum (Leipzig) - a musical ensemble founded in Leipzig in 1702 by Georg Philipp Telemann, later associated with Johann Sebastian Bach. * Collegium Musicum (Hamburg) - a musical ensemble founded in Hamburg in the 17th century by Matthias Weckmann.

Behrens attended the Christianeum Hamburg from September 1877 until Easter 1882. He studied painting in his native Hamburg, as well as in Düsseldorf and Karlsruhe, from 1886 to 1889. In 1890, he married Lilly Kramer and moved to Munich. At first, he worked as a painter (Painting), illustrator and book-binder (bookbinding) in a sort of artisanal way. He frequented the bohemian (Bohemianism) circles and was interested in subjects related to the reform of life-styles. In 1899 Behrens accepted the invitation of the Grand-duke Ernst-Ludwig of Hesse to be the second member of his recently-inaugurated Darmstadt Artists' Colony, where Behrens built his own house and fully conceived everything inside the house (furniture

Hamburg

thumb Official logo of the Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg (File:Hamburg-logo.svg) thumb Hamburg, seen from the International Space Station (File:HamburgFromTheISS.jpg) '''Hamburg''' ( It is also the thirteenth largest German state (States of Germany). Its population is over 1.8 million people, and the Hamburg Metropolitan Region (including parts of the neighbouring Federal States (States of Germany) of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein) has more than 5 million inhabitants. The port of Hamburg, on the river Elbe, is the second largest port in Europe (after the Port of Rotterdam) and tenth largest worldwide.

The official name reflects its history (History of Hamburg) as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, as a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, a city-state, and one of the 16 states of Germany. Before the 1871 Unification of Germany, it was a fully sovereign state. Prior to the constitutional changes in 1919, the stringent civic republic was ruled by a class of hereditary grand burghers or Hanseaten (Hanseaten (class)).

Hamburg is a major transport hub and is one of the most affluent (Affluency) cities in Europe. It has become a media and industrial centre, with plants and facilities belonging to ''Airbus'', ''Blohm + Voss'' and ''Aurubis''. The radio and television broadcaster ''Norddeutscher Rundfunk'' and publishers such as ''Gruner + Jahr'' and ''Spiegel (Der Spiegel)-Verlag'' are pillars of the important media industry in Hamburg. Hamburg has been an important financial centre for centuries, and is the seat of the world's second oldest bank (List of oldest banks in continuous operation), Berenberg Bank. There are more than 120,000 enterprises.

The city is a notable tourist destination for both domestic and overseas visitors; it ranked 17th (Mercer Quality of Living Survey) in the world for livability in 2012.
