Photographer's Note

Germans often mix various drinks and give them new names. Apple juice with sparkling mineral water is called Apfelschorle. Coke with Fanta is called Spezi. Some mixes have names different in different regions. For example bier with lemonade in South Germany is called Radler whereas in Hamburg area (North Germany) it is called Alsterwasser. I am not entirely sure where does the name come from but Alster is the lake which fragment you can see in this photo and Wasser means water. Alsterwasser means simply water from this lake. I guess someone has compared the idea of the diluted bier to drinking the water from this lake.
In any case across the Alster you can spot two towers: left is St Nikolai tower, as only the tower is left from the beautiful Gothic church, the right one belongs to Hamburg City Hall.
