The old Elbtunnel. It connects the St Pauli piers with the inner harbor area and was instrumental to allow harbor workers to transit from their housing areas to work. Small ferry boats had been the alternative, a bridge to cross the river was not optimal to be erected as it had limited the ship traffic through height restrictions. It was opened in 1911. The differently colored tiling on the tunnel ceiling indicates a WW-II bomb impact, which had been repaired.

This is an overview of Hamburg

Hamburg: Second largest city of Germany, situated in the north at the river Elbe, because of the seaport well known as a city of merchants. Because of the nearby sea, you will always have some fresh breeze while you are walking through the streets with nice private town-houses or while you are floating along aboard an “Alsterdampfer” on the river Alster.
