This is our second Street Of The World segment where we focus on a specific location with a local street photographer. This week, you're on a 48 hour layover in Hamburg, Germany and Marco Larousse is your guide. You're in for a treat! Discover the best spots to shoot street photography in Hamburg, the best times to be there as well as the safety and cultural considerations to keep in mind.

After you listen to the show, make sure you visit Marco's website, and connect with him on Twitter @HamburgCam

Marco kindly made this great interactive Google Map to match the locations he mentioned on the show. He also marked a few extra buildings, churches and landmarks on the map that are not part of a specific quarter but may be a bonus if someone is close to that area.

Here is Marco's list of suggested areas to shoot street photography and more:


Airport -> Central Station by commuter train and Central Station being the first photo location.
Downtown area / Jungfernstieg, city hall and lake Alster
HafenCity / Harbour City Quarter
Landungsbruecken / Harbour, Boats and old Elbtunnel
Elbe Beach / Strandperle
Planten und Blomen City Park
